Boxing's consensus pound-for-pound fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has his next fight set. Mayweather will face off against Andre Berto on September 12th in a fight available via Showtime PPV. Showtime Sports confirmed the news with a tweet on Tuesday.

Mayweather, 38, last fought in May where he defeated Manny Pacquiao via unanimous decision in the most successfully lucrative fight in boxing history. Mayweather's record stands at 48-0.

Berto, 31, most recently competed in March of this year, besting Josesito Lopez via sixth-round TKO. His professional record stands at 30-3.

There was some suggestion this bout would take place on CBS, but those plans have not materialized. Little else is known about this bout at the time of this writing, including purse split. It is believed the bout will be contested at welterweight or 147 pounds. While no location for the fight has been given, Mayweather's contract with the MGM Grand in Las Vegas all but certifies this bout will take place there.

Mayweather has previously said he'd retire after a September bout, but has not made the decision official.
