Floyd Mayweather’s fight against Andre Berto in Las Vegas on September 12 will be the last of his career, according to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. But, Freddie Roach, the trainer of Manny Pacquiao, does not buy it.

“I don’t think he’ll stop at 49 fights, I think he’ll fight to 50. I’m hoping that he promotes himself, maybe if he does he can make more money,” Roach said.

The undefeated welterweight will equal heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano’s long-standing unbeaten record of 49-0 if he defeats Berto.

Mayweather has the opportunity of further cementing his legacy as one of boxing’s all-time greats if he can surpass that record and extend his unbeaten record to 50 fights – but his trusted confidant Ellerbe is adamant this will be the final time the 38-year-old will enter the ring.

Mayweather is most likely capable of fighting beyond this September, but he recently cited his uncle Roger Mayweather’s worsening health as a motivation to hang the gloves up.

“My uncle Roger Mayweather has lost a lot of memory from the sport of boxing,” Mayweather told Fight Hype. “It’s sad that he’s only in his 50s, but he seems like an old man that’s in his 80s.”

His upcoming fight vs. Berto has been roundly criticized as a mismatch, but already there are seeds of a possible rematch vs. Pacquiao.

“Manny would do much better in a rematch, if the shoulder gets better,” Roach said. “We were doing well until the shoulder went in the fourth round and we had a tough time after that. I do think we can beat Mayweather 100 percent.” After his unanimous decision loss, Pacquiao revealed he was fighting with a torn labrum.

For now, all anyone can do is take Mayweather at his word, even if he has ended one retirement already

“September 12th is my last dance. On September 13 I just want to sit back and watch some football.”

Floyd Mayweather and MMA

Floyd Mayweather seems to have a hard time keeping his name out of the mixed martial arts landscape.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. spoke to the media following the press conference of his final bout, and he was asked about Mixed Martial Arts, and whether he would fight a top star like Ronda Rousey

His immediate response to the reporter: ‘You’re a comedian!’

When asked about fighting MMA fighters in general, he responded:

“I’m in the $100 million business, not the $100,000 business,” Floyd states. “I shouldn’t even be stooping to certain levels, because it doesn’t make any sense.”

“People that’s in MMA, I wish them nothing but the best. I don’t have anything negative to say about them. The hand I was dealt in life, I was dealt a royal flush and I just have to be thankful and appreciative of the hand I was dealt,” he continues. “I don’t have anything negative to say about anyone. I wish everyone of them nothing but the best.”

WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has no idea why the critics are all over him for selecting Andre Berto as the opponent for his September 12th Showtime Pay-Per-View card from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The bigger issue with the Berto fight is that fact Mayweather claims it’s going to be the final bout of his pro career. Many in the industry don’t believe him, but if that’s the case than most would have rather seen him face Amir Khan or Keith Thurman.
