Going into Saturday night’s welterweight title fight between the undefeated Floyd Mayweather and number one contender Andre Berto, the excitement was a mere blip compared to the monstrosity that was Mayweather-Pacquiao. The champion indicated that this fight, which is the final one on his 6 fight deal with Showtime, would be his final bout in a long illustrious career.

Berto on the other hand, who had lost few of his previous bouts, was a 30-1 underdog based on Vegas oddsmakers. From the opening bell, it was very clear that Berto, though a talented fighter, was in way over his head against the crafty Mayweather. For boxing fans with a bloodlust for brawlers and knockouts, this was not one of their favorites, as for fanatics of the pure science of boxing, this was another impressive and masterful outing by the champ.

Floyd cruised to a very easy victory as he ducked, dodged and tagged Berto with punches, even dancing his way to the corner a on few occasions, as well as speaking to fans in the crowd mid-fight. Some of the highlights of the bout actually came from social media, as former champion Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao took to their accounts and comically weighed in on how bored they are of the fight.

If this is truly Floyd’s final fight, which many are saying it is not, he has had one of most distinguished careers of any athlete on the face of the planet. If he looks for one more fight, it would give him the opportunity to have the best record in boxing history, as he currently stands tied at 49-0 with boxing legend Rocky Marciano. But if he does move ahead with another, who shall the opponent be? Amir Kahn or a rematch with Pacquiao? Only time will tell.
