"I've always said 49 is my last fight," said Mayweather, "I've been pushed to the limit and there's nothing left to accomplish."

    “Final” Fight for Mayweather

    Mayweather said that Saturday’s fight against Berto will be the last one in his career although most people don’t think the retirement for Mayweather will be permanent. Mayweather would go to 49-0 with a win which would tie Rocky Marciano's perfect record of 49-0. Mayweather said he doesn’t pay attention to what everyone else thinks about retiring. "Well no-one is in my shoes," he said, "I think my health is more important. Anything can happen. I'm not too worried about losing, but I don't want to have a shot mind. You can make a lot of money, but you still want to be able to walk and talk and not have a shot mind."

    Berto a Huge Underdog

    Andre Berto is not being given much of a chance of winning on Saturday night as he is a huge underdog. Berto said he is not paying attention to the odds or the media. "I've had haters since I was in middle school, high school, and I was stealing their girlfriends and all that," Berto said. "So they're going to be around. If you're not doing something right, they're going to hate on you. I don't care too much about the criticism." Berto has lost three of his last six fights and doesn’t seem to have what it takes to challenge Mayweather but Berto said can make this bout competitive. "Floyd is a guy I've known for a long time," Berto said. "He's a guy that I've watched for a very long time. So I know his style very well."

    Boxing Picks

    There is simply no value in taking Mayweather at these huge odds and it is hard to make much of a case for Berto winning the bout as he would probably have to knockout Mayweather to get the win as he is extremely unlikely to win a decision. I will avoid a side and simply take the fight to go over the rounds total of 11.5.
