According to the World Boxing Council, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) weighed in at 148.2-pounds on April 4th, as part of the organization's 30-day weigh-in requirement. By this point, Mayweather is likely less than a pound away from the welterweight limit. As previously reported, mandatory challenger Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) weighed in at 159-pounds when the WBC conducted their 30-day weight check. The fight takes place on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Showtime Pay-Per-View will carry the event.

[QUOTE=uniquehump]I actually got to see Floyd not too long ago in person when he promoted that fight in Detroit, MI.

[QUOTE=turnedup]Makes you wonder what his real walk around weight is these days..I say closer to 165-170 if I had to put a number on it.[/QUOTE] Mayweather looks the same all the time. Hes a small framed guy. If he put on 20 pounds it would be obvious.

[QUOTE=Dominicano Soy]Floyd is around the same size as a lot of these Jr WWs, hilarious how he was made to look like the bully after stopping Hatton. I said recently that this helps Mayweather's accuracy, as he doesn't need to adjust to a new weight when inside the ring, as he comes in weighing 2...
