We are just one day away from what may or may not be the final fight in the professional boxing career of pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather. On Saturday night, live on PPV, Mayweather will take on Andre Berto in what is being billed as Mayweather's retirement fight. Mayweather vs. Berto is live on Showtime PPV Saturday night, September 12 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT.
In the lead-up to Mayweather vs. Berto, we have one final important stop - today's official fight weigh-ins. Weigh-ins start at 6:00 p.m. ET, and will be available in a live stream right here at Bloody Elbow. You can also catch them here on YouTube. This is a Welterweight fight, with both men needing to weigh in at the 147 pound limit.
Weigh-ins have increasingly become their own big ticket events, with tons of fans showing up. This one is likely to be the same simply because it's Mayweather. At the same time, there are indications that this fight is shaping up to be a bit of a bust - this weigh-in may provide an interesting barometer of casual fan interest in the fight.
