Floyd Mayweather Outpoints Andre Berto, Calls It A Career
The one thing that a seasoned fan of any sport knows is that when an athlete says he or she is done, they don’t always mean it. With a unanimous decision against the overmatched Andre Berto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather upped his already amazing record to 49-0, tying the great Rocky Marciano. The USA Today called the fight a complete waste of time. That line succinctly sums it up.
Berto landed just 17% of his punches and both fighters seemed friendlier than they should have been during the match. It just wasn’t a great-supposed farewell to one of boxing’s greats.
So Floyd Mayweather claims he’s hanging it up. Regardless if he continues fighting or not, his body of work speaks for itself. Record wise he will always be one of the best. Floyd beat Manny so you can give him that, but wouldn’t it be nice if he took a real fight to beat Marciano’s record and cement his legacy in boxing? We’ll see what happens, but don’t hold your breath.
