A Recap of Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s Last Fight
An avid boxing fan, Talal Johany respects the dedication and discipline required to win a match. Talal Johany enjoys analyzing the styles of different fighters, including Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
In September of 2015, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., made his final professional appearance. Fighting against boxer Andre Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Mayweather, with 49 career wins and 0 losses, was tied for the record with the late heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano at the start of the match. The undefeated fighter added one last win to his record before retiring.
He began the fight by aggressively throwing several left jabs, while Berto stayed back cautiously. By the third round, Berto showed signs of life by throwing a flurry of punches, but to no avail as Mayweather evaded a majority of the swings. The fight continued on for nine more rounds, during which time the champion worked the left side of his opponent and landed an effective hook that left Berto flushed. At the end of the event, the judges scored the fight 118-110 in favor of Mayweather.
