Wednesday night the world saw a different Floyd Mayweather Jr at the podium of what is said to be the final press conference of his career. The future Hall of Fame fighter (48-0, 26 KOs) is set to face Andre Berto (30-3, 23KOs) on Showtime pay-per-view, 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.
While Floyd is known for verbally assaulting his opponents during press conferences, Mayweather was very thankful to his fans, his team, Showtime and the MGM Grand Las Vegas for making him into the most successful and arguably the best boxer the world has ever seen.
This time though, Mayweather took a more mental approach stating, “I know everything that goes on. What my opponent is doing, what he’s eating. What moves that he’s making. Berto went to the boxing gym last night. His weight was low. So he didn’t train. Every move you make, I know. This is called chess, not checkers.”
While Berto didn’t seem bothered by this, as seen around the 10 minute mark, Floyd’s statements have fans wondering if Berto will make weight for the fight come Friday afternoon.
