Mayweather documentary “30 days in May” to air on Showtime on Wednesday, April 3rd

By Allan Fox: WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr’s documentary titled “30 days in May” will be televised next Wednesday, April 3rd on Showtime. Check out the trailer. The documentary chronicles some of the recent events in Mayweather’s life, including the build-up to his May 4th title defense against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather recently signed a six-fight contract with Showtime/CBS that will make him huge money, but the pressure is on him to win these pay-per-view fights. Mayweather can’t afford to lose any of them, especially his first fight if he wants to keep making big money on PPV. The worst thing that could happen for Mayweather is for him to lose to Guerrero, and the continue losing to in his subsequent fights.

In his last bout a year ago against Miguel Cotto, Mayweather took a lot of punishment in winning a 12 round decision. He says he purposely went toe-toe with boxing fans in order to make it exciting for them. However, there are some boxing fans who feel that Mayweather had no other choice but to go brawl with Cotto because he didn’t have the mobility to box him the way he would have done had he been a little younger.

Mayweather is 36 now, he’s not as mobile as he used to be. He never used to trade with his opponents earlier in his career the way he’s doing it now.

Guerrero doesn’t have much power, but he is good at putting pressure on his opponents and throwing lots of shots to wear them down. It’s been working thus far for Guerrero because he hasn’t fought anyone the ability to move around the ring to foil his high pressure tactics, and it’ll likely work against Mayweather as well.

That doesn’t mean Guerrero will win the fight because Mayweather is good picking off shots and fighting on the inside, but it’s probably going to be just as tough a fight for Mayweather as his fight with Cotto.
