Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring for the first time since besting Manny Pacquiao this September, taking on Andre Berto.

Mayweather will be defending the WBA (Super), WBC and The Ring welterweight titles vs. Berto from Las Vegas and the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

This past May, Mayweather (48-0) scored a decision victory over Pacquiao in a bout years in the making. “Money” has stated this will mark the final fight of his 19-year boxing career.

Berto (30-3) owns 23 knockouts and is a two-time welterweight champion, but is just 3-3 over his last six fights.

The bout will serve as the main event for a Showtime pay-per-view that begins at 8 p.m. ET.
