Showtime has taken the wraps off plans for a boxing match featuring Floyd Mayweather, which the pay-cable net says is expected to be Mayweather’s final bout. The announcement follows the “fight of the century” in which Mayweather easily beat Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather will fight Andre Berto Sept. 12 in a 12-round welterweight world championship bout for Mayweather’s WBC and WBA 147-pound titles. The pay-cable channel announced that the Berto fight is expected to be the last in the unbeaten Mayweather’s 19-year career.
The fight, set to take place at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, is being promoted by Mayweather Promotions LLC and will be televised by Showtime PPV.
The undercard will include a WBO Junior Lightweight World Championship fight that will be a rematch between Roman Martinez and Orlando Salido, along with a WBC Super Middleweight title bout between Badou Jack and George Groves.
“All Access: Mayweather vs. Berto” premieres Aug. 28 on Showtime.
