May Day Preview: Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero


Floyd Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO) 146 lbs vs Robert Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO) 147 lbs

Tonight The Money Team (TMT) ringleader, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, puts his 43-0 record on the line against southpaw Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the WBC Title.

Its been about a year since Mayweather’s last fight against Cotto, and a lot has changed since then.  Floyd has served jail time for a domestic dispute turned violent, he had beef with former friend and TMT member 50 Cent, he patched up his relationship with his father and he left HBO for Showtime in a $250 million deal.

While Floyd has a had a little bit of trouble with lefty’s like Jose Luis Castillo,  Zab Judah and DeMarcus “Chop-Chop” Corley, Floyd has always remained victorious and despite a few close calls, Floyd defense has remained impenetrable.

This fight is a fight that Guerrero has wanted for some time as he has called out Floyd on multiple occasions to fight over the past few years.   After showing that he could fight in the welterweight class, many boxing analysts say this will be a test for Floyd as the rust from jail and father time are factors creeping up on his undefeated record.

From solitary confinement, back to the gym, Floyd has become the highest paid sports athlete of all time, but he is 36 years of age now, and Guerrero thinks Floyd’s legs are getting tired and the money and entourages are getting to his head.  This is undoubtably a fight of polar opposites, as Guerrero’s small town and humble demeanor goes up against sport’s biggest superstar. It’s May Day, its Cinco de Mayo, get your popcorn ready, this will be a show.
