Video: All Access: Mayweather vs Berto (Epilogue)

LAS VEGAS – The final stanza of the Mayweather v Berto series ends with fight night and Mayweather easily cruising to unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto. With that being said, a fight that was difficult to watch live is painful to watch in round by round slow motion.
