Berto: ‘Mayweather’s boring fight style hurt our PPV’s sales’

September 20, 2015 3:56 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Andre Berto tried his hardest to bring the fight to Floyd Mayweather so the fans could rally behind him, but Mayweather did a fantastic job at maintaining composure. “Money” and his corner’s gameplan may not provide as much excitement as some boxing fans want, but haters cannot deny that his ability to walk out of the ring looking dominant while taking minimal damage is masterful.

Mayweather’s last fight with Manny Pacquiao was hyped beyond belief and the question on every boxing fan’s mind would be answered: Who is the best of our generation? Unfortunately, the fight was viewed as a dud despite shattering pay-per-view records. Millions of fans tuned in to watch a slugfest and got a chess match where Mayweather avoided any and all dangerous confrontation. The fight left a bad taste in so many fan’s mouth that Berto believes that fight impacted THEIR fight in September.

“It’s definitely Floyd’s fault,” Berto told TMZ. “He left a sour taste in everybody’s mouth because of the Pacquiao bomb shell.” When he was reminded that thousands of fans said they wouldn’t buy another Mayweather PPV, Berto stated, “As you can see they weren’t bull s******g.”

“I knew if he had the chance he would run around and make it boring, but I tried my best to not let that happen and disappoint the people. They deserve excitement.”
