Mayweather done?

 

At the end of a tough, long night, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was left staring at a June 1 jail sentence and a boxing landscape that he seems to believe cannot deliver another quality opponent. The unbeaten 35-year-old champion late Saturday in Las Vegas said he’s leaning “80-20” toward retirement. “If it was my last fight, I gave them a bang,” Mayweather (43-0) said after his unanimous-decision triumph over Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto (37-3) at MGM Grand. With Mayweather’s jail term on a domestic-violence conviction expected to stretch into August, that’s not enough training days to fight 21-year-old Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who dominated Shane Mosley Saturday night and plans to fight again in September. On a possible fight against Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather said, “It’s not going to happen.” – L.A. Times
