Floyd Mayweather is now unbeaten in 49 contests, after securing a unanimous points victory over Andre Berto last Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Equaling the record of Rocky Marciano.
Unsurprisingly, the fight transpired as many predicted, with Floyd showcasing his defensive genius whilst boxing behind a sharp jab.
He frequently beat Berto to the punch, made him miss and punished him with devastating counter-punch accuracy. A fact all too obvious in the post-fight Compubox statistics, where Floyd enjoyed a 53% landing success rate, compared to Berto’s meagre 17%.
The Haitian had his moments, most notably in the ninth, but ultimately just wasn’t good enough to contend with Floyd, who seemed to land leather at will. Judges’ at ringside scored the contest 120-108, 117-111 and 118-110 respectively, a landslide decision, and somewhat a Mayweather formality that we’ve become accustom to.
13,395 people were present at the Las Vegas venue to witness Mayweather in what he insists is his final appearance in the squared-circle. "I've accomplished everything in this sport. Now it’s time to spend time with my family. I also want to help the fighters under the Mayweather banner”. He added.
The 38-year-old has been in the sport for nineteen years, been a world champion for eighteen years, campaigned across five different weight divisions and has made an estimated $650 million in career earnings. If this was Floyd Mayweather’s final fight, then he will be remembered as a technical master who epitomised professionalism in modern day boxing. But can 50-0 tempt him?
