On Friday, Sep. 18, former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather could be spotted inside of the doors of his personal gym in Las Vegas, Nev.

Mayweather is less than two weeks removed from his 49th professional bout, as he scored a unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto on Sep. 12 inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Mayweather was his typical self with Berto, as he focused on his defense while chosing the right moments to open up and engage.

With Floyd Mayweather’s unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto now in our rear-views, the boxing world will not turn its attention to the next wave of big events on the horizon.

And while there are surely still a bevy of top-flight performers left in the sport in the wake of Mayweather’s retirement, there is no bigger showdown on the horizon than the Nov. 21 clash between WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and former junior middleweight titlist Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

For several weeks this summer, Karim Mayfield saw his name thrust into the headlines as a possible opponent for Floyd Mayweather.

And while he never was able to land the big shot, Mayweather elected to face Andre Berto instead, Mayfield still kept a positive attitude throughout the process.

To anyone who follows the sport of boxing somewhat closely, you can surely spot the tension coming from both sides regarding a possible fight between WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and WBA super middleweight king Andre Ward.

There has been curiosity surrounding the potential matchup for a few years now but Ward insists that the Kazakhstan star and his team, specifically trainer Abel Sanchez and promoter Tom Loeffler, are feeding the public lies about their interest in a showdown.
