Report: Floyd Mayweather’s last fight might air on CBS instead of pay-per-view

floyd-mayweather-jr-nba-los-angeles-lakers-phoenix-suns1-850x560A lot of people are still waiting to find out who will be Floyd Mayweather’s opponent for his last boxing match. While many names have been discussed, a decision by Mayweather’s camp hasn’t been made yet. But do to many fans feeling like they didn’t get their money’s worth after he beat Manny Pacquiao, the best boxer in the world might be taking a different approach this time around. According to Lyle Fitzsimmons of CBS Sports, Mayweather’s last fight might air on CBS instead of pay-per-view.

 

Consensus welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. — fresh off a win in a springtime pay-per-view record-smasher — is reportedly considering taking his late-summer career swan song to free TV.

Mayweather insisted after the May 2 defeat of Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas that he’d return for a 49th and final fight in September, and an industry source told CBSSports.com on Wednesday that a short list of opponents is being pondered for a Sept. 12 event that could be broadcast live on CBS.

An announcement is possible as soon as the end of the week, the source said.

 

While I do think this could be a good thing for the sport of boxing, I’m having a hard time believing that Mayweather won’t fight on pay-per-view. Even though a lot of people complain about his fights, he knows that everyone is still going to watch.
