Mayweather: Five More and Then I'm Done With The Sport

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) is planning to finish his career at the end of his lucrative multi-year contract with Showtime. The deal called for a total of six fights within a 30 month period.

Mayweather completed his first fight of the deal on Saturday night, when he easily won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The second fight of the deal is scheduled to take place on September 14th, also at the MGM Grand.

Mayweather, 36-years-old, has no intention of fighting into his 40s - like boxing's fighting legend Bernard Hopkins.

Once he finishes up his contract with Showtime, Mayweather plans to focus all of his energy on his promotional company.

"Bernard Hopkins is a true champion, I take my hat off to him. To be 48-years-old and to be world champion...[that's] not [for] me. I got five fights [left] and then I'm through with the sport. Bernard Hopkins is a legend and a future hall-of-famer and hopefully one day I can get into the hall of fame," Mayweather said.

I can´t wait !!!!!!!!!!! Who wants to see a hugger and runner who goes the distance most of the time ?? Nice athleticism and defensive skills though.
