Last night, Floyd Mayweather beat Andre Berto by unanimous decision and reiterated that he is retiring with a 49-0 record.
The boxers went 12 rounds but there was no upset, with Mayweather winning by decision at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.
Though the hype for the fight had been subdued throughout the week, Mayweather has stated the bout would be the last of his career.
He reiterated his intention to retire after the fight.
The fight was scored 117-111, 118-110, and 120-108, all in favor of Mayweather.
Mayweather came out throwing a high amount of punches, atypical of his calculated style.
But his defense remained tough and he retained the upper hand throughout much of the early going, escaping Berto’s aggressive jabs and dancing around while sneaking in solid shots.
Late in the fight, the boxers exchanged verbal jabs, Mayweather telling Berto to “shut up.”
In the end, Mayweather survived a flurry of Berto jabs in the fight’s final minute and held on, coasting to victory.
He dropped to his knees at the center of the ring and took in the moment.
