Floyd Mayweather retires after Berto win: 'My career is over, it's official'

New, 19 comments

Floyd Mayweather "officially" retired (again) after defeating Andre Berto on Saturday night.

Floyd Mayweather completely shut out Andre Berto during their September 12 fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. While PPV and ticket sales won't be comparable to the last few Mayweather bouts throughout the years, the fight played out exactly as you would expect.

Mayweather controlled the fight and comfortably won with judges scoring it at 117-111, 118-110, and 120-108. Shortly after the contest, Floyd took the mic to announce yet another retirement from the sport of boxing.

"My career is over. It's official," Mayweather said after the victory. "I've accomplished everything. There's nothing left to accomplish in this sport. I don't want to rank myself, but I'm the best at boxing."

If Floyd really calls it quits, he will end his career with a 49-0 record with 26 knockouts. There aren't many who believe him though, as he has already said the exact same things multiple times since 2007.
