Mayweather beats Berto, ends 49-0
Floyd Mayweather Jr. boxed to a unanimous decision over Andre Berto on Saturday (Sept 12) in what he has repeatedly said would be the final fight of his career.
Mayweather, 38, easily outboxed his younger opponent over the 12 rounds to retain his WBC and WBA welterweight titles and improve his perfect career record to 49-0, matching the benchmark set by former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano.
Berto, a 30-1 underdog against one of the best defensive fighters of all time, dropped to 30-4 as he suffered his fourth loss in his last seven fights.
Mayweather after the fight: “It was a good fight. I knew he would be a tough competitor. Experience played a major role tonight. He is a very athletic boxer. What can I say? I was the better man tonight.”
Asked if he might be tempted to come back for a 50th fight, Mayweather replied: “My career is over. It’s official. I’m financially secure and I’m in good health.
“There’s nothing left to prove in the sport of boxing,” said Mayweather, who has made more than $700 million during his stellar career.
