Well whoever fights THE CHEATER CHILD they need to ask for a 1 million a pound over the weight limit and NOT 30,000 thousand like poor Escobedo was FORCED to accept, if not they are STUPID TOO.Posted September 8, 2012 12:33 am
A catchweight fight only makes sense if one guy is a superstar and the other guy is an opponent who is desperate for a big fight.
In this case, both guys are HBO/Showtime regulars who don’t have the mass recognition factor to sell ppv on their own. They should just pick a regular weight class and settle it.
My guess is that Guerrero doesn’t want to take any chances with his interim title, lest the Mayweather fight actually materialize somehow. That’s why he wants to stay at 147. I could be mistaken though.
For Broner, you have to figure his management isn’t going to take any risks with their fighter unless the other guy is the one at a disadvantage somehow. That means sticking to aging veterans and faded former champions moving up in weight when possible.
Broner himself might want to make the fight, but I doubt that it will happen at 147 anytime soon.Posted September 7, 2012 6:35 pm
I’m glad someone pointed that out. Guerrero just moved up to 147 and Broner is fighting at 130. Since Broner can barely make that weight anyway he could fight Guerrero at about a 140 lb catchweight which is very reasonable since Broner is two weight classes below and Guerrero is one weight class above Broner moves up to 140 Guerrero moves down to 140. It’s not like Guerrero hasn’t fought at that weight before, he actually just came up from 135 like @UJELLY had mentioned so it’s not like it would be unfair to do so. If you know you can beat the guy why not. I have no problem with Guerrero and I don’t like catchweight fights that much either but if one guy is coming up a few weight classes then the other fighter could come down a weight class too. It’s very reasonable guys.Posted September 7, 2012 6:19 pm
The CHEATER CHILD went up 3 weights 147+ to fight a 130 pounds Escobedo, believe me the The CHEATER CHILD – Floyds minnie me will fine a way to CHEAT AGAIN.Posted September 7, 2012 1:55 am
Yeah but the CHEATER CHILD will find a way to CHEAT again maybe weigh in at 154 like he did to Escobedo.Posted September 7, 2012 1:51 am
Well said Hecdog! I like “The Ghost” alright, but he was damned lucky that Aydin was more fighter than boxer. Otherwise, Guerrero would not have made it to the last rounds, where he was being rocked and was clinching to deflect Aydin’s onslaught. I agree that either Mayweather, Broner or Pacquiao could easily take Guerrero down. The guy’s OK, but he ain’t all that!Posted September 6, 2012 10:19 pm
I can picture Mayweather fighting Guerrero as an “just got out prison”-type of tuneup. Money would either knock him out or shut him out. Top Rank doesn’t do business with Golden Boy Promotions anymore so we can forget about Pacquiao-Guerrero (even though I’d rather see that fight than Pacquiao-Marquez IV or Pacquiao-Bradley II). I think Guerrero vs. Ortiz or Berto would be makeable, competitive fights. Still, I can help but think that Guerrero is a cut below all of these guys. Wouldn’t mind seeing him vs. Alexander, Maidana or Mattheysse.Posted September 6, 2012 9:14 pm
I actually reckon Broner should take him up on the offer as a one off WW bout. Guerrero isn’t really a 147 pounder anyway… he’s bigger than Broner, but not by a great deal. Broner is now very much a lightweight in terms of size and his ability to make weight. Guerrero on the other hand is just a blown up lightweight who was still making 135 comfortably as of last year.
Gotta agree, Guerrero is solid, but unspectacular. And while he throws a lot of punches, his accuracy just isn’t that good. And that accuracy is only going to be lower when he fights anyone with any sort of defensive acumen. I can honestly picture him landing like 10% of his punches if he were to fight Mayweather and I hate Mayweather.Posted September 6, 2012 8:58 pm
C’mon Guerrero, get real — you want him to go up three weight divisions, really? What’s your next idea, ask Klitschko to drop to 147? If you want the fight to happen, drop one division, and ask Broner to move up two. That’s a compromise, and if you win, you’ll make a stronger case for a “Money” fight.Posted September 6, 2012 7:28 pm
I also agree with the post below, if Broner is calling out a welter then he needs to go ahead and fight him at welter. Im not to big on catch weight fightsPosted September 6, 2012 7:27 pm
I agree with Guerrero if broner wants to talk trash to a welterweight champ then he better be ready to move up to 147. If he doesn’t and wants a catch weight then what’s the point. Broner has a world of talent but he acts as though he is mayweathers shadow. Acting like he is on the pound 4 pound list. I do agree it would be a great fight. I think broner should try to get that done. Mayweather and broner both share the same manager/ advisor in al haymon. Mayweather could vacate the WBC belt and let broner vs Guerrero fight for it. Mayweather will most likely stay at junior middleweight and defend his title at that weight class.Posted September 6, 2012 6:42 pm
Go ahead Broner and move up and beat Guerrero. He has turned me off with all his press releases trying to get Mayweather in the ring with him when he has not earned that right. Yes he has a story with his wife but that has nothing to do with boxing.Posted September 6, 2012 6:14 pm
