He is back, and this time Floyd Mayweather Jr. is boxing for a shot at the history books.

The larger-than-life boxer — known as “The Money Man” — is hoping to match Rocky Marciano’s haloed mark of 48-0 when he takes on former welterweight champion Andre Berto (30-3, 22 knockouts) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 12.

Coming off the biggest payday in boxing history following his $440 million pay-per-view generating match against Manny Pacquiao in May, Mayweather defended criticism of being a boring fighter and cruising to the finish line of his career by picking an easy opponent.

“Berto is a very, very tough guy, hungry and I know he is not going to lay down,” said Mayweather at the press conference announcing the fight Thursday.

“I chose Berto because he is very exciting. Then I looked and then said, well I have been getting backlash, he’s been getting backlash,” added the 38-year-old Mayweather, who insists this will be his final bout, although some have their doubts.

“No one is forced to buy the fight. I appreciate it, but no one is forced to buy the fight.”
