Ding ding ding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here we go 3MR readers, its fight No. 49 for undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather as he takes on Andre Berto from the MGMG Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas!!!

No side stepping, clinching or holding, let’s do this!!!

POWER

Mayweather holds a three KO advantage over Berto career wise, 26 to 23.

However, it remains to be seen what a solid money punch from Berto does to Money come fight night.

Will Mayweather grow old overnight and become more susceptible to punches?

If the 38 year old shows any signs of slippage, it could become an opportunity for Berto, who is coming off a stoppage win over Josesito Lopez earlier this year.

ADVANTAGE: BERTO

Andre Berto

SPEED

Here comes the first of many advantages for Mayweather.

In the past 10-15 years, it has been Mayweather and former foe Manny Pacquiao holding the reigns on top of the sport of boxing.

Both fighters, who met this past May in a less than stellar affair, have to be considered two of the fastest fighters in the history of fisticuffs.

Hands down, Mayweather is a slam dunk in the speed department.

ADVANTAGE: MAYWEATHER

DURABILITY

There has been very little in the ring that the 19 year veteran has not seen, so it’s a natural thought that Mayweather is equipped to handle just about anything that occurs from first bell to last bell.

Over the years, much like the Klitschko clan, Mayweather wears down and frustrates his opponents, no matter what their game plan is heading into the bout, and by the later rounds opponents just have no hope for a victory.

ADVANTAGE: MAYWEATHER

Floyd Mayweather

EXPERIENCE

Yet another slam dunk for Mayweather, as the multi-division champion has faced and beaten all current or future Hall of Fame type fighters en route to winning multiple Fight of the Year awards since his career started in 1996.

The experience edge is all Mayweather.

ADVANTAGE: MAYWEATHER

DEFENSE

In our final category, it is well known that Mayweather will be going down as, if not The Best Ever, than assuredly one of The Best Ever defensive fighters the sport has ever seen.

‘Hit and don’t get hit’ is a huge component of Mayweather’s game plan heading into all of his fights; don’t expect this one to be any different.

So there you have it, 3MR!!!

We’ve got Mayweather holding huge advantages heading into the Showtime televised Pay Per View tonight.
