Guerrero: The Pressure is All On Mayweather, Not Me!

Robert Guerrero says the pressure is on Floyd Mayweather ahead of Saturday's fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather puts his unbeaten record on the line against the 'Ghost' in his first fight since his incarceration last June on a battery charge.

The Michigan native will be looking to extend his 43-0 record but Guerrero insists he is not fazed by taking on the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

"The pressure's on him to stay undefeated and keep his legacy," said the Californian. "He signed a big contract and he's got a lot of stuff to fulfil. I've dealt with losses and come back so it's not on me, it's on him.

"My focus is on what I've got to do to get the job done in the ring, executing my gameplan and doing what I have to do."

Guerrero jumped up two weight classes in a direct attempt to earn a clash with Mayweather having failed to get the big fights he craved as a world champion in three lower divisions.

And the 30-year-old said the ploy paid off after securing the biggest fight out there.

"I stayed on it, kept making the fights I needed to make it happen and here it is," he said. "After beating (Andre) Berto it was like 'we gotta make this happen.'

"The first time he said he hadn't heard of Robert Guerrero it made me laugh because he wouldn't be the best fighter in the world if he didn't know who was who."

No matter what the second guessers may say, Guerrero does have a good mindset going into this thing. He'll definitely make more noise than most fans think he will.

The problem though for Guerrero, Mayweather been in this situation before against WAY MORE TALENTED then you are...Guerrero has never been on this big of a stage and he certainly has never faced anybody as good and certainly not better…

Don't tell me how Floyd is a helluva fighter...how would you know? He's ONLY fought Oscar Dela Hoya in his prime, and most felt Oscar won that fight. IN fact, Oscar walked away from $25M for a rematch. He's a…

[QUOTE=arizashakes;13323261]Guerrero seems to be going into fight with a good mind set, he doesn't have the fear of losing. Big big mental advantage in my opinion.[/QUOTE] I gotta give it to the Ghost, he definitely seems genuinely excited about the…

wonder if Guerrero will pay counterpuncher and let Cherrypicker come forward, but he'll still have to contend with the handspeed
