Rumor: Mayweather's Last Fight FREE on CBS?

Rumorville.. Mayweather's September 12th fight is going to be on free network TV. Again let me say that this is nothing more then a rumor we are seeing and hearing in the boxing industry. Here is what we know for sure. Mayweather is fighting September 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This is his last fight with Showtime / CBS and he stated this is his last fight before he retires. He has also said that he would like to fight Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield.

    Is this a possibility? Yes.. lets put this together.

  • 1. Many casual fans were very disappointed with Mayweather's performance against Pacquiao.
  • 2. How many of those "fans" will pay to watch Mayweather fight again?
  • 3. There are no PPV worthy opponents.
  • 4. This is Mayweather's last fight, he is going to take a low risk fight.
  • 5. Taking a low risk fight means low PPV #'s.
  • 6. Calling out Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield.
  • 7. Al Haymon.

If you put this all together, it makes sense for Mayweather to fight for FREE on network TV. He does not have a strong opponent, its his last fight and its going to be a low risk fight. Most people even the fans who bashed his performance against Pacquiao will tune in to a free boxing match to watch Mayweather. Why? In boxing all it takes is one punch by anyone to end everything. Also... why not... its free!
