Guerrero Aims To Take Advantage of Mayweather's Rust

Floyd "Money" Mayweather says a one-year break including jail time won't stop him from retaining his WBC welterweight title defense against Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero. Mayweather, 43-0 with 26 knockouts, will make the mandatory title defense against Guerrero, 31-1 with 18 knockouts, on May 4 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, a year after beating Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision.

It will be Mayweather's first fight since serving two months in jail for domestic battery, a fact that gives challenger Guerrero a confidence boost.

"Most definitely Floyd Mayweather is taking me seriously," Guerrero said. "It has been his longest training camp in a long time. Being a whole year's layoff, he's going to feel the punches. We're going after him the whole fight. It's going to take a little time to shake that ring rust off."

Pretty sure Mayweather could lose a step and still beat Guerrero comfortably.

[QUOTE=Jakutindi Wauya;13290615]I've seen Floyd training. The best way to describe this fight is the bull and the matador. Floyd will be in reverse gear beating the shiat out of Guererro. By the 4th round Guererro's eyes will be closing and…
