Four-Division and Six-Time World Champion, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs), and pound for pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KOs) are finally going to step in the ring on May 4, 2013. The contracts were signed by both Guerrero and Mayweather after months of anticipation. Both fighters are perennial pound for pound champions and fans around the world can expect to see an action packed showdown. This mega-million dollar global event will be one the fans will remember for years.

Undefeated in his Hall of Fame career, Floyd Mayweather is no stranger when it comes to fighting on Cinco de Mayo weekend. The Mexican-American holiday is one of Floyd's favorite dates to do battle. His conquests against Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya generated huge PPV numbers, making Mayweather the highest paid athlete in the world. In 2007, Floyd Mayweather vs. Oscar De La Hoya set the record for the most PPV buys in boxing history, which still stands today.

Mayweather who is at the apex of sports, is one of the most recognized face's on the planet. Fighting Guerrero will present Mayweather with his most difficult challenge since his fight with Oscar De La Hoya, being that Robert is a decorated multiple world champion in his prime. Guerrero, like De La Hoya, is one of the most accomplished Mexican-American fighters of this generation.

Guerrero gained international recognition when he made the leap from Lightweight to Welterweight to win a world title. Guerrero joined an elite class of fighters who have jumped up two weight classes to win world championships which include Roberto Duran, Roy Jones Jr., and Sugar Shane Mosley. In addition, Guerrero became the third fighter in boxing history to win a world title at featherweight and welterweight, uniting with legend Henry Armstrong and future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao. Finally, Guerrero joined all-time great Oscar De La Hoya becoming the only Mexican-American fighters to win world titles across four divisions.

Leading up to his showdown with Mayweather, Guerrero defeated five Olympians in a row, winning multiple world championships along the way. Guerrero's dominating victory against No. 1 contender Selcuk Aydin (23-1, 17 KOs), a fighter who was the mandatory challenger to face Floyd for over three years, proved he's one of the best fighters in the welterweight division. "The Ghost" followed that impressive feat with another spectacular performance, dominating former two-time welterweight world champion, Andre Berto (28-2, 22 KOs) in a "Fight of the Year" candidate. Guerrero's performance against Berto also garnered him "Fighter of the Year" by some boxing pundits. Both wins came by wide 12-round unanimous decisions.

When asked about fighting Floyd Mayweather on the biggest stage in sports, Guerrero stated, "First I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all his blessings. Without him I am nothing. Next I want to give thanks to my team for all their hard work, dedication and loyalty. It's been a long road with many trials and tribulations but we've stuck together though the fire."

"Floyd Mayweather is a great fighter, one of the best to ever lace up the gloves, but on May 4th I'm going to end his reign as pound for pound king," said Guerrero. "I believe God has put me in this incredible position for a reason. This is bigger than boxing. It's about humbling a man everyone perceives is unbeatable. When I come out victorious on May 4th, everyone will know that if you put Jesus Christ first in your life, anything is possible."

"I'm dedicating this fight to knocking out blood cancer with Be The Match. This organization saves lives by finding matching donors for patients who need a bone marrow transplant. My wife had leukemia and needed a marrow transplant -- and she found her donor through Be The Match. Now she's cancer free. I want to use my platform as a fighter to help Be The Match save even more lives by getting more people to join the Be The Match Registry like I did. You could be someone's cure. Find out how at BeTheMatch.org."

Will the seasoned veteran Mayweather be able to tame the young hungry lion Guerrero? Mayweather vs. Guerrero will be an epic battle of boxing's best fighters facing off against one another. Get ready for the fight of the year in the ultimate David vs. Goliath super-fight.

[QUOTE=Still Blazin]What are you even talking about? Im a fan of boxing. Im fan of Mayweather.

[QUOTE=-Kev-]Guerrero talking about putting Jesus Christ first was a bit corny though. He went hard on one paragraph, then went all religious in the next one. It's understandable though, with what he's been through with his wife.[/QUOTE] There's nothing wrong with that at all.

I truly believe that Guerrero will make this a fight. I think it will be a good fight.
