Guerrero Shreds Mayweather: He Knows I Will Beat Him!

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero was surprised to hear that WBC champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. had no idea who he was. Based on the latest events, Mayweather is taking a pass on Guerrero and might be heading to a May 5th clash with undefeated WBC junior middleweight Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

BoxingScene.com: Robert, Floyd Mayweather has come out in a recent interview on fighthype.com and said he doesn’t know who you are.  Can you comment on his statement?

RG:  Floyd doesn’t know me, please!  That’s the oldest trick in boxing to downplay your biggest threat.  It tells me everything I need to know, which means he’s going to try to avoid me like [Juan Manuel] Marquez did - because he knows I’ll beat him down.

BoxingScene.com: So you’re saying he knows who you are?

RG:  Come on man…I fought as a co-feature to one of Floyd’s pay-per-views.  Look, we all know Floyd wants [Manny] Pacquiao and that’s the fight everyone wants to see.  Honestly I don’t think Pacquiao wants anything to do with Floyd, because if he did, he would have demanded the Mayweather fight right after he beat Marquez.  We all know Marquez exposed Pacauiao and that’s why Mayweather vs. Pacquiao will not happen on Cinco de Mayo.

BoxingScene.com: Floyd said he doesn’t want anyone else but Pacquiao. Your thoughts?

RG:  Again, that fight is not going to happen in May.   There are too many obstacles to hurdle and not enough time to make it happen in a few months.   He’ll needs a dancing partner and I’m ready to go.  One thing I know for sure I ain't no Victor Ortiz, I won’t be kissing him in the ring and he definitely won’t be putting his hands around my neck at the weight-in. If he does he’ll get smacked.

BoxingScene.com: Are you saying Floyd Mayweather is ducking you?

RG:   What I’m saying is, Canelo is too green to fight Floyd and anybody who knows boxing truly knows he is not ready.  No disrespect, but he was brought up on hand-picked opponents.  I, on the other hand was thrown to the lions, that’s why I’ll whip Floyd's ass.  I'm a seasoned veteran who's won titles overseas and captured multiple world championships.  I started fighting ten round bouts by my tenth pro fight.  That's what I mean by being thrown to the lions.   Floyd hasn't even fought overseas.  If Mayweather chooses to fight anyone else then he’s ducking his biggest challenge."

Guerrero you need to beat some guys at 140 stack them wins and show the world what your made of then the boxing fans will like you but as for now you don't deserve a fight with Mayweather right now…

Guerrero needs to come up to 147 fight, fight and fight ..... and make sure that he wins decisively to prove that he is the man. Until then, what's the point really!
