WBC: Mayweather Belts Should Be Vacant By Week's End

By Miguel Rivera

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman expects Floyd Mayweather Jr. to follow through with his promise to retire.

Mayweather said his bout last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was the final bout of his 19-year career. He won a twelve round unanimous decision over former two-time champion Andre Berto.

Sulaiman views the end of Mayweather's career as the start of a brand new era for a new generation of up and coming fighters.

"He confirmed his retirement from boxing. For me, I think it would be something spectacular if he didn't return, because it would mark [the start of an era for] a new generation of fighters. He goes out on top, unbeaten with health and money," Sulaiman said.

"If he can maintain that position [by staying retired] it would set an example."

Sulaiman then gave his thoughts on which fighter could take over as the new pound-for-pound king of boxing.

"It could be Golovkin, the Canelo-Cotto winner, Chocolatito, Leo Santa Cruz. Quality, charisma and luck is required," Sulaiman said.

Sulaiman also confirmed that Mayweather's WBC welterweight and junior middleweight titles should be vacant by the end of the week. His organization is waiting to receive official notification from Mayweather, but the WBC is already mapping out the future for both belts.
