LAS VEGAS (AP) — 11:25 p.m. (2:25 a.m.)

The stage is set up inside the ring for the post-fight news conference, but Floyd Mayweather Sr. is holding court near the ring apron — and he isn't holding back about his son's future.

"He ain't got nothing left to prove," Mayweather said after the dominant unanimous-decision win over Manny Pacquiao.

The trainer is comfortable with his 38-year-old son's stated plan to retire in September after the final bout of his Showtime/CBS contract.
