Guerrero: I'm The Only Option For Floyd Mayweather Jr.

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero continues to push for a 2012 showdown with WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. Guerrero is currently rehabbing a shoulder injury and ready to get back in the ring as soon as possible. Mayweather already has a scheduled date of May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but no opponent has been finalized.

Golden Boy Promotions is attempting to make a mega-fight between Mayweather and WBO welterweight champion Pacquiao, but the fight doesn't appear to be on the table, as of yet, with Pacquiao's promoter, Top Rank, reportedly sending a letter to Golden Boy to express their disinterest in making the fight.

Several alternative options are being discussed to replace Pacquiao. Guerrero believes he's done more than enough to become the frontrunner for a shot at Mayweather's title - if Golden Boy is unable to secure Pacquiao.

BoxingScene.com was provided with Guerrero's argument points for all of the possible options being mentioned for Mayweather.

Guerrero's thoughts on Saul "Canelo" Alvarez getting the shot - "Canelo Alvarez is not ready for prime time and is it really worth throwing a 21-year-old in with the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.  Example, [Fernando] Vargas vs. [Felix] Trinidad was a fight that definitely changed Vargas’ career and not for the better.

Guerrero's thoughts on Erik Morales getting the shot - Erik Morales at his best wouldn’t stand a chance against Mayweather for the simple fact that styles make fights.  Example, Zahir Raheem is a poor man’s version of Mayweather in which we have already seen the outcome.

Guerrero's thoughts on Amir Khan getting the shot - As far as I am concerned he showed no chin against [Marcos] Maidana and if not for the ref he would have been stopped.  It also looked like Freddie [Roach] was about to throw in the towel.  Third, if he wants to fight then step up and take the fight and stop talking about “you need two or three more fights”.  Sh*t or get off the pot.   

Guerrero's thoughts on why he deserves the Mayweather shot - I'm in my prime and I have the ability to box or fight on the inside.  More importantly with a great defensive fighter like Mayweather you must have great stamina and the ability to volume punch. I set the all time punch output in my world title fight against Malcom Klassen at almost 1300 punches.  Great defensive fighters like Mayweather may be able to slip two or three punches, but can he slip four or five?

And, if any of these three guys feel differently or disrespected, we can get it on. We all have the same promoter, so it shouldn't be hard to make a fight. I'd love to put a stop to the British Con-games.

Don't worry Guerrero, you're with Golden Boy. You will get your shot soon enough. Floyd only fights, will only ever fight Golden Boy fighters and you're probably third in line after Khan and Canelo.
