New, 1183 comments

Floyd Mayweather takes to the ring for what he says is the final time tonight against Andre Berto.

Tonight at 8:00 pm, BLH will be here with live round by round coverage of the Floyd Mayweather-Andre Berto pay-per-view, a four-fight bill that features three world title fights from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In the main event, it's Mayweather (48-0, 26 KO) taking on Berto (30-3, 23 KO) in what is widely perceived to be a rather gross mismatch, and is being sold as the final fight of Mayweather's Hall of Fame-bound career. The veteran pound-for-pound king is the overwhelming favorite in this fight, with Berto not perceived as any sort of legitimate threat. But it's a Floyd Mayweather fight, which makes it an event.

The undercard features a pair of world title fights with closer odds. WBO super featherweight titleholder Rocky Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KO) will face Orlando Salido (42-13-2, 29 KO) in a rematch of their April 4 bout, which Martinez won to take the belt. Badou Jack (19-1-1, 12 KO) will make the first defense of his WBC super middleweight title against George Groves (21-2, 16 KO), with Groves actually the favorite to win. The PPV opener will see Jhonny Gonzalez (58-9, 49 KO) face Jonathan Oquendo (25-4, 16 KO) in a 10-round super featherweight fight.

Connor Ruebusch will be handling the round by round duties tonight. Join him for what may be the final Floyd Mayweather fight ever!
