Mayweather closing in on Berto announcement
Former WBC welterweight Champion Andre Berto leads the resounding stampede to be Pound for pound Emperor Floyd Mayweather Jr’s next…. and possibly final opponent.
There’s just a short fuse 90 days countdown until the table is set and the stage is set for Floyd’s next main course fight on September 12th at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Several media sources including TMZ.com, are dishing up appetisers with morsels of information, suggesting that Floyd’s next opponent will be Andre Berto.
The representatives of both fighters have been busily negotiating during the last weeks and it has been reported that an agreement to broadcast an announcement is closing in.
Mayweather (48-0, 26 KO) is now in Las Vegas deeply ensconced in his training regimen following some weeks of rest after defeating Manny Pacquiao.
Berto (30-3, 23 KO) reaches this zenith after knocking out Josesito Lopez in just 3 rounds. The WBC welterweight championship will be contested.
