    Boxing 4th May - Floyd Mayweather vrs Robert Guerrero

    Robert Guerrero knows pressure, and it's not fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. - latimes.com


    Guerrero, who is Jr.'s opponent Saturday, is a 7-1 underdog to pull an upset for the World Boxing Council welterweight title at the MGM Grand.

    This looks one-sided, right? This scrapper of a family man taking on the undefeated, polished king of bling.
    It does a bit

    Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 knockouts) is a former world featherweight and super-featherweight champion who left the sport for 15 months after scoring a convincing decision over Michael Katsidis in April 2011. Guerrero took the break to care for his leukemia-stricken wife, Casey, whose illness is now in remission.

    Guerrero flashed a glimpse of how his family concerns shaped him by beating hard-punching Selcuk Aydin in his comeback fight and welterweight debut in July 2012.

    And now the ultimate test arrives with Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), famed for his quickness and defensive attributes. However, Mayweather's victory over Miguel Cotto in May 2012 left him more marked up than ever.
    He might have his moments been a southpaw , but he's not even a natural welterweight, so probably 44-0

    I'm not sure why Guerrero raised his hands at the end there. It either means "I'm so dumb I think I've won" or "Look, I just survived 12 rounds of getting battered".

    Mayweather says that he got hit too many times with his last fight against Cotto, so got his Dad Floyd Snr back in his corner to put his defensive style back together..

    Tbh, I didn't see the rounds that Guerraro won according to the judges. Saw him land one decent bodyshot in the first round and after that was just hitting thin air all night.
    Age and younger fighters might eventually catch up with Floyd jnr, but even at 36 yo he seems on a different planet to other fighters.

    Yes, an arrogant twat but due to his brilliant ring craft deserves the right to act that way.

    I always thought Manny would beat him if they met but Mayweather just seems to get craftier, not necessarily better, with every fight.

    Mayweather while he won did a lot of the old 'rope a dope' from the Ali days.
    Something, I was taught never to do. (well it was my pa that told me when i was fighting my sis).

    Call it ringcraft ok, I call it cowardice. If Mayweather ever went toe to toe with his opponents he would get knocked the fuck out.

    I think spending a couple of months in chokey with no distractions probably helped.

    You do understand the sport is called boxing and not car park slugging don't you?

    Snubs, what a dumb thing to say. The first thing any boxer needs to do is learn how to defend, how do you think Ali won against the big sluggers?

    It's called Boxing.

    Let's face it, if he got duffed up every fight, his boyfriends wouldn't call him Pretty Boy, would they?
