Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0) is officially set to fight Andre Berto Berto (33-3) in his next fight scheduled for September, according to TMZ.
Adrien Broner lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Shawn Porter as his idol, Floyd Mayweather Jr., sat ringside Saturday, June 20, in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
For nearly six years Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and their respective camps traded jabs outside the ring as the public yearned to see the sport’s two biggest stars face-off. The two boxers finally squared off last month after a series of tortured negotiations. Was it worth the wait? Most boxing fans would argue no, as Pacquiao delivered a listless performance, no doubt impacted by a torn rotator cuff, and Mayweather put on his usual defensive clinic. But for the fighters and everyone involved in the bout, it was an absolute knockout from a financial perspective.
The check was for $100 million, a payday so mind boggling that Floyd Mayweather Jr. couldn’t help but show it to a few reporters when the night was done.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. extended his undefeated record on Saturday, beating Manny Pacquiao in one of the most widely anticipated boxing matches of the decade.
