Mayweather talks Broner-Porter, Errol Spence, GGG, and his last fight

New, comments

Floyd Mayweather says he hasn't decided on relinquishing all or any of his titles, but when he does, Shawn Porter or Keith Thurman will have to fight Errol Spence for it.

Errol Spence is getting plenty of push from pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, appearing with him in front of cameras much more often lately. And with Adrien Broner faltering, Mayweather dubs Spence as the future of boxing. So while holding court with the media, Floyd gives his thoughts on the Broner-Porter fight, vacating his titles, GGG, and looking at Andre Berto and Karim Mayfield as potential farewell opponents.

In the video Floyd makes it clear that he has yet to relinquish any of his world titles while mentioning that he still hasn't even received his WBO title that he won from Manny Pacquiao last month. He says he's undecided on whether or not he'll vacate one or all of his titles (commenting that he may want to keep the WBO title), but that whichever belt he vacates, Keith Thurman or Shawn Porter will have to fight Errol Spence for it on his September undercard.

When talking about Gennady Golovkin, Floyd says that at his weight Gennady simply can't beat him. He says he's too smart for Golovkin, and that Gennady fights too straight up-and-down with no special effects.

Floyd was also unapologetic about naming Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield as his final September opponent, and when asked by a reporter if he was being serious or just joking, Floyd shot back a question - asking the reporter if he posed the same question to Pacquiao when he selected Chris Algieri as an opponent. The reporter said yes, he did, and Floyd responded with a succinct, "well, sh*t happens."

This IS boxing though, and sh*t fights happen all the time. I still think Floyd is turning the screws on Khan a bit by mentioning Berto and Mayfield, but he could in fact be serious. After the Pacquiao fight he did say that he wasn't going to take on a killer in his last fight, but rather someone 'solid.' Whomever it will be, they will have to be named soon one would think. September is just around the corner.
