By Chris Williams: In looking at the paychecks the fighters will be getting this Saturday night there’s no mistaking who the star is for this fight. Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KO’s) will be getting a guaranteed $32 million, and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) will be receiving $3 million for their fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The $3 million may not seem like a lot of money, but it’s by far the most money that Guerrero has ever received in a fight, and I’m sure he’s happy to get even that.

Guerrero has shown optimism that has surprised me. Boxers are self publicist’s who talk well even when they know defeat is predestined. Read the rest of this entry »
