Floyd Mayweather‘s incredible boxing career is nearing an end.
According to the The Associated Press, one of the most successful fighters in the history of boxing will hang up his gloves for good next year. The report says that “Mayweather told guests at a gala dinner in South Africa on Friday that he remembers his first fight when he was a kid in 1987, and that ‘September 2015 will be my last.’”
The 36-year-old doesn’t look like a boxer whose age is preventing him from being dominant in the ring. Over the last two years, Mayweather has defeated quality opponents such as Miguel Cotto, Robert Guerrero and Saul Alvarez to improve his all-time record to 45-0-0 (26 knockouts and 19 decisions).
The one fight all boxing fans want to see is Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao. Both fighters have talked about a potential bout, but it doesn’t look like these all-time greats will step into the ring any time soon. What we do know is that boxing will be a much less exciting sport without Mayweather as its top star.
