Now that Robert 'The Ghost' Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) has been in the ring with both Keith 'One Time' Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs) and Floyd 'Money' Mayweather (47-0, 26KOs), the Gilroy boxer was able to give his breakdown of whether or not Thurman is capable of beating Mayweather in a contest.
Guerrero lost to both Thurman and Mayweather, by way of twelve round decision. Both of those contests took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather outboxed Guerrero for nearly their entire fight, while Thurman made it a war at times and landed some very big punches in several rounds.
An overhand right caught Guerrero in the ninth round, which the boxer said hit him to the back of the head. Guerrero went down and had to dig deep in order to survive as Thurman tried to finish him in that round.
Guerrero praises Thurman but doubts he is ready for a fighter on the level of Mayweather.
"[Thurman] is a solid fighter, but Floyd is extremely fast. His reaction time is quick. I couldn’t even land punches on him, really. That’s how quick he is. And it's not just how quick he is. It’s how quick his reaction time is, so in time maybe [Thurman] will be ready. He’s a solid fighter, he’s got good boxing skills. He’s got good power in both hands. Who knows? Anything can happen in boxing," Guerrero said.
