Mayweather-Guerrero tickets go on sale on March 12th

floyd52By Allan Fox: Tickets for the highly anticipated May 4th fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero will reportedly go on sale this Tuesday, March 12th for their fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather, 36, will be defending his WBC welterweight title against 29-year-old Guerrero in a fight that will be televised on Showtime/CBS pay-per-view.

There’s a lot of questions about how much Mayweather has left in the tank. He didn’t look at all good last year against Miguel Cotto in winning a close 12 round decision. Mayweather said he could have boxed Cotto, and it would have been a much easier fighter.

However, not too many boxing fans believe that excuse. It just looked like Mayweather had no choice but to go to war with Cotto because his legs don’t work like they once did. Had Mayweather tried to move around the ring a lot there’s a good chance he would have faded quickly, and then Cotto would have taken him out.

If Mayweather fights exactly how he fought in that fight then we may see an upset because Guerrero does well against fighters that just stand there and try to match him punch for punch. The fact of the matter is Mayweather can’t throw 1000 punches in a 12 round fight, but Guerrero can. If Mayweather can’t move then he’s probably going to lose the fight or at least appear to lose.

Guerrero is taking a big step up in class for this fight, as his first two fights at welterweight have come against lesser fighters in Selcuk Aydin and Andre Berto. It’s not that Berto isn’t a good fighter, but he hasn’t looked like the same fighter he once was since 2009. Guerrero was able to take advantage of Berto’s stamina problems to pound out a 12 round decision last November.
