Mayweather Jokes That He's Fighting Berto, Mayfield Next

By Rick Reeno

WBC/WBO/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26KOs) was not giving up any clues regarding his next opponent for September 12th, likely at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

When he was pressed to give a hint, Mayweather was only mentioning two fighters - Andre Berto and Karim Mayfield.

Of course Mayweather was being sarcastic, but some writers present were gullible enough to believe he was being serious.

Ironically, Robert Guerrero and Victor Ortiz were able to use their victories over Berto to land lucrative pay-per-view fights with Mayweather.

"I think September I'm going to choose who I want to choose. I think probably Andre Berto. I think I need probably a Berto or a Karim Mayfield to get my ready for my 50th fight. Everybody wants to see number 50. I think Berto has been looking good, as of lately," Mayweather said.
