Mayweather: Pacquiao my most important victory

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says that his victory against Manny Pacquiao on May 2 was the most important result of his boxing career.

The 38-year-old Mayweather retired unbeaten in September with a record of 49 wins including 26 knockouts. The fight against Pacquiao made history by breaking all financial records in the sport.

Mayweather was in Russia recently at an open training session wearing a t-shirt with '48' on it and when asked what it stood for he stated that the number indicated his most important boxing victory.

"This [t-shirt] is in honour of my 48th victory, which is the most important of my career," Mayweather told reporters.

"A lot of people said that I avoided this fight. A lot of people said that I couldn't win the fight. 

"But I proved all of that was wrong, and, therefore, the fight against Manny Pacquiao is the most important for me," he added.

Meanwhile, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has confirmed that he will be announcing details about Pacquiao’s last fight in April, including the opponent and venue, during the Nonito Donaire v Cesar Juarez card this Friday on truTV.
