THE thought of Floyd Mayweather losing has become inconceivable. Winning is everything to him and for years now his opponents have rarely come close to making defeat a reality. Andre Berto, who challenges him on September 12, should then be just one more win as Mayweather eases his way to impending retirement.

But Mayweather maintains, “He has nothing to lose. I think that once you’ve got a guy put in a situation with nothing to lose that makes him that much harder.”

“He has the chance to be one of the top guys in the sport when I’m through,” Floyd continued. “I say any given Saturday anything can happen. I’m prepared. I’m prepared mentally and physically, I’m in top shape. I’m ready and I’m sure he’s in top shape. He’s ready. I’m not going to overlook this guy.”
