Floyd Mayweather returns, fights Andre Berto on Sept. 12 in Las Vegas


Sorry, but those Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor (cough) "super fights" will have to wait.

Undefeated boxing kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0) will return to the squared circle in just over a month when he faces off against welterweight bruiser Andre Berto (30-3) on Sept. 12, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Showtime Sports announced the pairing on Tuesday.

Mayweather, 38, kept his perfect record intact by turning away Manny Pacquiao in what was billed as the "Fight of the Century" back in May. There was preliminary talk about an immediate rematch, but that quickly fell apart due to injury (among other things).

And no love for The Golden Boy?

The "Mayweather vs. Berto" undercard will also feature a WBC super middleweight title fight pitting Badou Jack opposite George Groves, while Roman Martinez and Orlando Salido rematch after their super featherweight "fight of the year" candidate back in April.
