Floyd Mayweather’s the new Rocky Marciano
Mayweather rocked Andre Berto in Vegas Saturday night to close out his career with a perfect 49-0 win streak. This brings Mayweather to tie the record of legendary boxer Rocky Marciano.
Mayweather confirmed post fight that this was it for him, and he’s hanging up the gloves for good.
“I want to thank the fans…”
“I want to thank all the fans… for 19 years I would not be able to do it without these fans… But you have to know when it’s time to hang it up. I’m knocking at the door; I’m nearly 40 years old now.”
We can’t say we blame him, nothing like retiring on top when you’re not even 40 years old. Plus, boxing hasn’t completely fried his brain yet, from what we can tell, so might as well get out before it’s too late.
Mayweather has a reported net worth north of $400 million. Even with inflation in the next 50 years, we’re going to go ahead and save that’s a safe bank account to retire with. Enjoy your life post-boxing Floyd, and congrats and kicking so much ass.
