TBE, The Best Ever. Floyd Mayweather (49-0 26 KO) has been telling us for sometime that he is TBE. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t. In the end it’s personal opinion, arguments spanning over different eras, and difficult to prove one way or another.
One thing’s for sure with no argument, Mayweather is TBG, The Best (of his) Generation and arguably many others.
On Saturday night, he thoroughly dominated Andre Berto (30-4 23 KO) with judge’s scores of 117-111, 118-110, and 120-108. Standing-8 had it 120-108.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. For some that would be watching a Mayweather fight. You are not going to get a different result so prepare to go insane if you don’t like the beauty of his craft.
On Saturday night, Floyd did what he always does, use the jab, use the counter right, go to the body, exhibit excellent footwork and defense and hit and don’t get hit. On this night he did it all exceptionally well. Not much more to write on the fight, if you’ve watched his mastery before you’ve already seen it.
At the end of the fight Floyd went to the center of the ring, kneeled down and raised both arms upward. That was something new and a sign that this may be it. In his post fight interview he eluded to the same saying he is now retired.
A living legend painting masterpieces fight after fight. If this is the end, farewell champ, we miss you already.
