Guerrero: Mayweather ran when he felt my power

floyd#12(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Chris Williams: Despite eating right hands all night long and made to look like an over-matched contender, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) is convinced that the only reason he lost the fight to WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) last night is because Mayweather ran from him instead of standing in the box to fight him the way that Guerrero wanted and needed him to do in order for him to win.

Mayweather used a little bit of movement, but not a lot to beat Guerrero by a 12 round unanimous decision at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marquez: Mayweather too good for Canelo

mayweather453By Dan Ambrose: The great Mexican boxing warrior Juan Manuel Marquez doesn’t think WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has the skills or the experience to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. right now, and thinks the 22-year-old Canelo needs more experience before he faces Mayweather.

Marquez said to “I think for Canelo it’s a tough fight because Mayweather is the best fighter in the world and he has got great defense and is a good, fast punch. I think Canelo needs more experience for a fight with Mayweather. I don’t like to fight [Mayweather] again because everyone knows what happened in 2009.”

Guerrero too slow to compete against Mayweather

floyd#10By Scott Gilfoid: Last night’s fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, was kind of a letdown for many boxing fans due to Floyd’s complete mastery of the much slower and limited Guerrero.

Mayweather won the fight by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision in a fight that was scored much closer than it should have been. The judges appeared to give Guerrero some mercy rounds in scoring it 117-111, 117-111, and 117-111.

Mayweather injures hand in win over Guerrero; September fight questionable

floyd#11By Dan Ambrose: There’s good news and possibly bad news about tonight’s total domination victory by WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

First the good news: Mayweather easily beat Guerrero by a 12 round unanimous decision by the scores of 117-111, 117-111, and 117-111.

Now for the bad news: Mayweather says he injured his right hand in the victory, and he showed his hand after the fight and it looked badly, badly injured and I wouldn’t be surprised if Mayweather broke it.

YouTube video
By Jim Dower: WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) remained unbeaten with an easy 12 round unanimous decision win over challenger Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) in a a fight that was embarrassingly easy for Mayweather at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The final judges’ scores were 117-111, 117-111, 117-111.

Mayweather was able to land his right hand pot shots at will against the slower upright Guerrero. The only time Guerrero could land was when Mayweather would voluntarily back up to the ropes to give Guerrero a shot at trying to land.

In the 8th round, Mayweather landed at will to the head of Guerrero and ended up cutting him on the left eye. Had Guerrero looked like a beaten fighter in that round, but Mayweather backed off in the 9th and didn’t throw as many punches.

Mayweather v Guerrero: Preview

mayweather232By Peter Broderick: – “There’s no blueprint on how to beat Floyd Mayweather!”. If you’ve been watching  the Showtime series;  all access, or any other piece of media that features Floyd Mayweather of late, the preceding quote might seem familiar to you. Mayweather is never more than a couple of sentences away from reminding us that 43 have tried and 43 have failed to beat him, something he’s also been saying recently is that there’s no blueprint on how to beat him. But there is.

The Blueprint

When Oscar deLa Hoya fought Mayweather in 2007, many people thought that the Mexican won the first half of the fight. Mayweather was shipping rounds because he was finding it difficult to counter the jabs from the bigger man.

Guerrero looking a little flabby around midsection for Mayweather fight

01(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Dan Ambrose: You’ve got to give Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero a great deal of credit for being able to move up two divisions to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. It was only four years ago that Guerrero was fighting at featherweight, and was one of the tallest biggest featherweights in the division.

Guerrero has basically eaten his way to the welterweight division, but doesn’t have the muscles or the power at this weight that he had at featherweight and super featherweight. Indeed, like a lot of fighters that put on a lot of weight in a short period of time, Guerrero is carrying around some flab.

Khan: Mayweather has too much talent for Guerrero, but I have the game plan for beating Floyd

floyd453By Scott Gilfoid: Former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan’s career may be on the brink of implosion after losses to Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson and a close, close call against 2nd tier fighter Julio Diaz, but that’s not stopping Khan from flapping his gums about tonight’s fight between Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Khan is going with the safe pick in choosing Mayweather to come out on top against Guerrero. It’s unclear if Khan is doing this because he really believes Mayweather is the more talented fighter of because Guerrero trash talked him in the past, but he seems to think Mayweather will win this one.
