Schaefer: Guerrero Wants Floyd Mayweather Jr. Next

By Rick Reeno

WBA/WBO interim-lightweight champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (29-1, 18KOs) believes he is ready to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25KOs), says Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer. Guerrero returned to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night, and won a bruising twelve round unanimous decision over Michael Katsidis.

"[Robert Guerrero] put everyone at 140 and 147 on notice. He is ready to fight any and everyone. And the name he mentiond to me, and I asked him twice. The name he mentioned to me is 'Pretty Boy' Floyd Mayweather. That's who he wants. He has the skills, the youth, the speed and everything to make a big impact at the 140 and 147 pound weight classes," Schaefer said.

that will be an easy fight for guerrero. C'mon guerrero fight a man. How about martinez or paul williams, or cotto. Gayweather and trashy family are all overrated. [email][email protected][/email]

This is probably another WWF script concocted by GBP with Mayflower's consent. Much like the Marquez fight.

Lol anyone actually believe that Guerrero (sincerely) wants Mayweather? Schaefer is smart, this is a fight May would want, without having to actually come out and say it himself, because he knows he'll be criticized for it. Just say it…
