This week, Floyd Mayweather allowed the media as the pound-for-pound king put in the work for his upcoming retirement fight with Andre Berto on September 12 in Las Vegas.

The current welterweight and super welterweight champion will aim to make it 49-0 next month and says Berto brings a lot to the table despite grumbles over his choice of opponent.

“Berto is a tough competitor. He’ll try to put pressure on me throughout the fight.

“A good jab can work well, but he’ll be throwing lots of combinations.

“My last fight against Pacquiao was more like a chess game. This time will be like Chinese checkers, a fast match.

“I have sparred a lot at the gym. I have like ten sparring partners,” said Mayweather.
