Tonight, Floyd Mayweather competes in what he claims will be his final fight as a professional boxer. The 48-0 fighter, and greatest of our generation, is in action against Andre Berto. Bloody Elbow will have live fight night coverage all night, both right here, and throughout the night on Twitter. Here, we'll have round by round recaps of the fight's conclusion.
Round 10: The trash talk continues, forcing referee Kenny Bayless to pause the action and calm them down. There's a sequence here that pretty much sums up the fight, as Berto charges in with a half dozen rapid fire jabs. He lands none of them, but Mayweather sneaks in one perfect jab in the middle. Mayweather treating Berto with disdain at this point. Mayweather 10-9
Round 11: Not much to say at this point. Mayweather evades, he clinches and hits the body, and he lands most of his limited punches cleanly. The clowning begins in earnest in this round, including Mayweather busting out a semi-Ali shuffle. Berto just has nothing for him. 10-9 Mayweather
Round 12: Mayweather decides to push the pace a bit late in the round, landing some heavy uppercuts on Berto in the corner. Those shots stagger Berto, possibly hurting him more than we have seen at any previous point in the fight. That done, Mayweather literally dances through the final seconds. 10-9 Mayweather, giving him the 119-109 win on my card.
