All you Floyd Mayweather Jr. fans out there that haven’t seen him fight live might want to start saving up because your opportunities may be coming to an end.

An Associated Press report (via ABCNews.com) quoted Mayweather on a tour of Africa as saying that September 2015 will be the last time he steps in the ring.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he’ll fight for the last time in September next year.

Mayweather told guests at a gala dinner in South Africa on Friday that he remembers his first fight when he was a kid in 1987, and that “September 2015 will be my last.”

The unbeaten five-division world champion, considered by many the best boxer of his era, said after beating Canelo Alvarez in a dominating display last September that he had four fights and two years left in his career.

Fight three of his six fight mega-deal with Showtime/CBS will be in May against an undecided opponent.  Floyd said this week that  Amir Khan and Marcos Maidana are the leading contenders.

Mayweather is 45-0 record with 26 knockouts and made his pro debut in 1996.

    BOXING IS CORRUPT! Boxing is desperate to make money. Boxing is in desperate need of heroes and villians. With having said that, I doubt September, 2015 will be Mayweather’s last fight. I predict his last fight will end in a controversial loss, forcing Mayweather to fight again, and again.
