The undefeated pound for pound champion, “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather JR, is still pretty after defeating fellow American Andre Berto, in a unanimous decision that took place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, September 12.

The 38 years old boxer, retain his WBC and WBA welterweight titles. Extend his winning straight to 49 wins with no loss. Tying the only boxer in the world with undefeated record former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano.

The decision favor Mayweather by winning via unanimous decision.

The bout between Floyd Mayweather JR and Andre Berto, might not be a popular bout, it might not be a good bout to end for Floyd Mayweather. He should choose a much tougher opponent ending his career with a bang. But he rather choose an easy opponent so he could beat it easily and retain his title with unbeaten records. That is his tactics, nothing we can do about it.

Despite the arrogance he show on and off the ring, arguably he is the best pound for pound champion in the world through out his career.

With the retirement of Floyd Mayweather JR, the chances of rematch between Manny pacquiao and him ended. We are now looking for new boxer to shine and perhaps entertain us, as once did by Floyd mayweather. Hopefully as soon as possible we see a new Floyd Mayweather JR, that will entertain us in the square ring.
