At 48-0, and possibly one fight left in his career, who will Floyd Mayweather Jr. end his career in the ring against? That is the question that has been on many people’s minds since he out boxed, and made his fight with Manny Pacquiao look like sparring match.
One name that has been thrown around, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (32-0, 29KO). GGG is in a totally different weight class, and is a lot bigger than Mayweather. Mayweather typically fights at 147lbs, and also walks around roughly at that weight. GGG fights at 154lbs, but cuts to make that weight. He easily puts on 20+ pounds after weigh-ins.
Floyd Sr. was asked about the fight, check out what he had to say.
Although I think it would be a fun fight, I just don’t see it happening. GGG isn’t going to come down to 147, and Floyd isn’t fighting at 154, even though he has in the past. There just isn’t any need to take that kind of risk, not only losing the illustrious “O”, but also risking brain damage. If you don’t know who GGG is, check out this highlight video:
