Guerrero Jabs Merchant Over The Mayweather Comments
By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg
During a recent interview with BoxingScene.com's Chris Robinson, HBO analyst Larry Merchant questioned the validity of Robert Guerrero challenging WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Guerrero, along with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, are reportedly the two leading candidates to face Mayweather.
“Somebody will have to enlighten me about why his name is even out there,” said Merchant of Guerrero. “I don’t get it, except the fact that he’s a Golden Boy fighter and he wants a big fight like a lot of fighters do. Nobody blames them for that. But he’s never been a primetime attraction, much less a pay-per-view attraction. I think he has to go out and beat somebody who has some credentials before fighting a top fighter.”
Guerrero had a few words in response.
"If Larry believes he could have kicked Floyds a** if he was 50 years younger, then I guess me winning world titles in multiple divisions, and being a complete athlete, I would have a better shot than him on May 5," Guerrero said.
