Floyd Mayweather vowed that his mind was made up and he was quitting boxing after defeating Andre Berto by a landslide decision on the judges' card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

A crowd of 13,395 witnessed Mayweather's 49th victory after a glittering 19-year career.

Mayweather defeated Berto 118-110, 117-111 and 120-108 on the ringside cards. Judges gave only the seventh round to the Haitian - Mayweather appeared to take a rest over that three minute period. But he was still imperious in defense and barely shipped a punch.

"You have to know when to hang it up. I'm knocking at the door; I'm close to 40 years old.

'I've been in this sport 19 years, been a world champion 18 years, broke all the records. There's nothing else to prove in the sport of boxing.

"My 49-0 is part of boxing. Records are made to be broken. Hopefully, some day we can find the next Floyd Mayweather."

He added: "I'm leaving the sport with all my faculties; I'm still sharp and smart."

"I've accomplished everything in this sport, there's nothing left to accomplish. Money doesn't make me. I make money."

Mayweather, who has made an estimated $650 million in career earnings, added: "Now it's time to spend time with my family and children, make sure they get the proper education. I also want to help the fighters under the Mayweather banner."

Mayweather was rarely challenged over the 12 rounds by Berto, showing all the skill, movement, timing and adjustments which mark him out as one of the greatest of all time. But not 'The Best Ever', as he and his fans refer to him as.
