During the recent open training session in Moscow, Russia, former five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26KOs) wore a t-shirt, which displayed the number “48.”
Local reporters asked Mayweather to explain why he decided to wear that shirt, since he retired undefeated at 49-0 in September.
Mayweather says his 48th victory, which came on May 2nd against Manny Pacquiao, was the most important victory of his professional career.
The two fighters finally came together in the ring after five years of failed negotiations. Their encounter shattered numerous financial records and generated 4.6 million purchases on pay-per-view – which blew away the existing record of 2.4 million from the 2007 PPV between Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya.
