Mayweather says Guerrero Doesn’t Have a Prayer

 Mayweather says Guerrero Doesnt Have a Prayer(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) Almost without exception, the boxing experts pick Mayweather to win. Most say it will be by UD. That’s because they don’t see Mayweather getting reckless and take any unnecessary chances to win by kayo. They go right down the line and are forced to pick Little Money. Over the years Mayweather, Jr. has had a chance to grow into the weight class, so he will be stronger and more comfortable at the welterweight level.

He is used to fighting bigger men. This will be only the third time for Guerrero. There’s no argument when the experts go down the list of necessary skills and all the assets are on Mayweather’s side. He is faster. He is more skilled, both defensively and offensively. He is a great counter puncher. He can fight rough if he has to, using his elbows, and leverage to maneuver his man. He will take seize any moment of relaxation or careless Guerrero might provide.

Mayweather vs Guerrero: Keys to Victory, Four to Explore, Official Prediction

 Mayweather vs Guerrero: Keys to Victory, Four to Explore, Official PredictionTonight, the world of boxing welcomes the return of P4P King, Floyd Mayweather. Another year away from the ring and a short incarceration stint will play their hand at leveraging what most consider to be sheer greatness. Whether or not the man across from him (Robert Guerrero) holds the key to exploit this possibility is another story. That question we can’t answer. What we can answer is the fact that between the calendar year of 2012 and current, something very interesting happened in the world of Boxing.

All the men who dominated the sport in close proximity to Mayweather saw things come to an abrupt end. Cotto, Pacquiao, Margarito, Williams, and Mosley were each ushered one by one to the doorstep of retirement. Some refuse to walk in, yet each clearly have one foot in, one foot out. Mayweather remains the last man standing of that golden era. Quickly, we take a look at the odds of him remaining that way beyond tonight: Continue reading

Mayweather-Guerrero: Skillful Opponents, Faith and Mustard Seeds – What does it all mean?

 Mayweather Guerrero: Skillful Opponents, Faith and Mustard Seeds   What does it all mean?(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Even rough edged boxing fans have heard or been told the Good Lord once said something like, “Faith as small as a mustard seen can move mountains.” If the Lord said it, it must be true, right? Life should be so simple for boxing fans. The sad truth is most of us feel unworthy for that to be true in our lives. Tough guys feel the statement is just a fairy tale thought up by a bible thumper or religious zealot. No doubt many critically describe such talk as “way out there” b.s. Those hard heads don’t feel religious beliefs of any kind have a place in boxing, or any sport for that matter. For example, “Tebowing” was ridiculed by many (and still is), and now the former N.Y. Jet is in search of another team he hopes will have faith in him as a winning pro QB.

It’s safe to say boxing fans generally chose to believe in something more tangible such as muscle, speed and toughness. It helps too if the fighter comes from Philly, Chi Town or the Big Apple. Pugs from those places get higher marks, because of their survival skills. It makes them betting favorites Also, If your last name is Garcia, or Mayweather, you’re definitely an odds on favorite. Chances are their pacifiers were shaped like boxing gloves. Continue reading

 Final Press Conference: MAYDAY – Mayweather vs. GuerreroThe final press conference for MAYDAY’s headline fight took place this Wednesday 05/01/2013. Promoters, managers, trainers and fighter’s took the opportunity to address the media as Saturday looms. Up until this point in the promotion of this event, both Mayweather and Guerrero have strayed away from press conference antics, scuffles and any other rough tactics to promote interest in the event.

It wasn’t until the final press conference that we saw some verbal bashing and attacks from either camp. The verbal bashing, however, did not come from either Mayweather or Guerrero. It actually came from Ruben Guerrero, the trainer and father of Robert Guerrero. Continue reading

 Floyd Mayweather Bids to Become Cinco De Mayo King(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Adam J Webb: The Cinco De Mayo weekend has become synonymous with boxing superfights and this weekend proves no exception as Floyd Mayweather Jnr takes on Roberto Guerrero at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The modern day Las Vegas tradition began in 2003 when Oscar De La Hoya stopped Luis Raman Campas in seven rounds. De La Hoya with his large Hispanic fanbase was the original anchor to this boxing mega fixture.

Guerrero has had a great camp for Mayweather bout

 Guerrero has had a great camp for Mayweather bout(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Robert “The Ghost’ Guerrero has reportedly had his best ever camp in getting ready for his fight this Saturday night against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas, Nevada, say his manager/trainer Bob Santos. He’s never seen the 29-year-old look so good and feels he’s peaking at the perfect time in his career in this important bout.

For Guerrero’s sake, you’ve got to hope he’s peaking because if he loses the fight and looks bad, he’s going to have to get in the back of a long, long line. He’ll obviously never get another chance against Mayweather if he loses the fight and the other big fight that Golden Boy Promotions can offer him is a fight against their huge-weighing junior middleweight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who reportedly rehydrated to 172 pounds for his recent win over WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Floyd wanted to set the record straight for fans and media alike. Here’s what he had to say…

Chip Mitchell: Floyd let’s jump right into it. I was going through some old CDs the other day and I came across a song by Peaches and Herb titled “Reunited”. I started singing along and I (jokingly) dedicated the chorus to you while I was singing, which leads to my question. How does it feel to be reunited with your son as his trainer? Continue reading
