Guerrero Responds To Mayweather on Using Wife's Story

By Rick Reeno

In an earlier story on BoxingScene.com, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) accused Robert Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) of using his wife's battle with leukemia as a vehicle to gain fans. Mayweather believes Guerrero has done "a hell of a job" with selling their fight through the weeks of promotion and various interviews, but he was also highly critical of Guerrero - stating the Northern Cali boxer was using wife's past health issues as a "sympathy story" to get the fans on his side.

 Guerrero challenges Mayweather on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I think trying to gain fans by having a sympathy story every week....I don't think that's a good thing, but I'm glad that his wife was able to beat the leukemia. I don't feel nobody should go through a situation like that, but we all go through certain things. Our mothers, our fathers, our loved ones go through certain things. I just feel like...just to gain fans you are using your wife's story, you are using a sympathy story," Mayweather said.

"I don't think that's a great thing that happened to her. I'm glad that she was able to beat the leukemia, which is a great thing. I think that's a good thing and I'm glad that they have a great bond, but I don't like that every week they keep selling the same story and selling the same story. It's time to talk about something different."

Guerrero responded back to Mayweather's comments.

"It makes me laugh. To gather sympathy? I don't need sympathy. I come to fight. We're fighters. Sympathy doesn't win fights. He is just worried about himself, how his image is looking. So when he says stuff like that... you know, at the end of the day what gets you through is talent - not sympathy. It's laughable, it makes you laugh. It just shows you where his head is at," Guerrero said.

Just more ignorance from the woman beater Mayweather. He goes to jail for beating up his girlfriend. I can see why Guerrero's story bothers him.
