Unsurprisingly, the retirement bout of the undefeated Floyd Mayweather against Andre Berto didn't go down as "one for the books."
(Probably all the action the whole fight.)
Money May, as expected, dominated Berto and won by unanimous decision—120-108, 118-110, 117-111—and retained the welterweight world title using his oft-criticized yet undeniably effective style. Need proof? Berto reportedly just connected on a paltry 17-percent of his punches (83 of 495), cementing Mayweather's reputation as an artful dodger and a defensive wiz.
And now, the world champ is about to hang up his gloves with an unblemished 49-0 professional record, matching that of boxing legend Rocky Marciano's spotless career.
Still, many deemed Floyd's final dance as mediocre, with some even saying that he should've chosen a more worthy opponent. And critics made sure they were heard come fight night.
It wasn't only the People's Champ who took a jab at the lackadaisical fight and Mayweather himself, as Oscar de la Hoya heaved a sarcastic sigh of relief.

The twitterverse was up all throughout the match, but not because the tweeps were liking what they were seeing.

Yes, I was gullible enough to buy tonight's Mayweather fight. Wonder if he had an IV yesterday?— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 13, 2015
I'd rather watch Floyd spar with Justin Bieber, who of course is again in Floyd's entry entourage.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) September 13, 2015
On the other hand, The Money Team, Mayweather's stable of avid followers, tried to shun all the negativity and just revel in their guy's illustrious exit from the sport.
