Floyd Mayweather Announces Next Fight?
Floyd Mayweather is preparing for his next fight, and this time he could be hopping in the ring with Andre Berto.
According to TMZ, both athletes are on board, and the match is set to take place in Las Vegas on Sept. 12.
This could be the last battle for Mayweather. He’s implied that he’s ready to put his boxing gloves into retirement.
After his victory over Manny Pacquiao this past May, he stated, “My last fight is in September. And then it’s time for me to hang it up. I’m almost 40 years old now. I’ve been in this sport for 19 years and have been a champion for 18 years. I’m truly blessed.”
No matter what he decides, Berto (30-3, 23) is preparing to go toe-to-toe with the champ for what could be his final hoorah.
Berto tweeted, “I’m happy to be in the running for this fight and am definitely up for the challenge. #StayingReady #TeamBerto.”
