Mayweather then went onto win every round (in two of the judges' eyes) to win a landslide unanimous decision to win the lineal welterweight championship.
Two judges scored it 119-109 while the other judge scored it 118-110.
After dominating Mosley, Mayweather defeated nine more boxers to reach 50-0 before calling time on his storied professional career.
But the 42-year-old will return to the squared circle this year after striking a deal with UFC president Dana White.
"Floyd and I both believe that we add a lot of value to each other," White explained. "We'll see how things start to play out, probably by the fall of 2020, and we're probably going to do some business together.
"And if things play out the way things Floyd and I think they will, I will probably sit down with Al Haymond in March and get a deal on paper.
"If everything goes our way, Floyd and I would be doing something in October or November."
Mayweather last fought on New Year's Eve 2018, when he stopped Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their exhibition bout.
