Floyd Mayweateher has confirmed Andre Berto will be his “final” opponent on Showtime pay-per-view September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Mayweahther will be making his first in-ring appearance since soundly defeating Manny Pacquiao in May. Against Berto, Mayweather will be attempting to tie Rocky Marciano’s undefeated record of 49-0.

“I’m ready to get back in the ring on September 12 and prove again to the whole world why I’m ‘The Best Ever,'” said Mayweather. “I always bring my A-game and this fight against Andre Berto is no exception. He’s a young, strong fighter who is hungry to take down the best. Forty-eight have tried before and on September 12, I’m going to make it 49.”

Andre Berto made his Premier Boxing Champions debut in March, knocking out Josesito Lopez in six rounds.

“I’m coming to kick Floyd’s ass on September 12,” he promised. “Best believe that I plan to bring it to Floyd and I’m not concerned about what 48 other fighters have been unable to do. Somebody is getting knocked out and it won’t be me. You don’t want to miss this.”

The card will be a quadruple-header will two additional world title matchups. WBO super featherweight titlist Rocky Martinez defends against Orlando Salido in a rematch to their April bout. Badou Jack makes the first defense of his WBC super middleweight title against George Groves.

At press time, the opening ppv bout has not been announced.
