The speculation can end.
Following months of reports circulating in boxing circles, Floyd Mayweather will certainly indeed square off with Andre Berto on Sept. 10 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The 147-pound showdown will certainly have Mayweather’s WBC and WBA titles on the line and is to air in the united state on Showtime pay-per-view.
“I’m ready to get back in the ring on Sept. 12 and prove again to the whole world why I’m ‘The Best Ever,’” declared Mayweather in a statement delivered to the media Tuesday afternoon. “I always bring my A-game and this fight against Andre Berto is no exception. He’s a young, strong fighter who is hungry to take down the best. Forty-eight have tried before and on Sept. 12, I’m going to make it 49.”
The expense will certainly be supported by a strong undercard including WBO junior light-weight champion Roman Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KOs) in a rematch with Orlando Salido (42-13-2, 29 KOs) and WBC “incredibly” middleweight ace Badou Jack (19-1-1, 12 KOs) versus George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs). A fourth televised bout is anticipated to be revealed in the coming weeks.
