Robert Guerrero is getting cocky ahead of his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. The two will meet in the ring May 4 on Showtime. Mayweather appeared on Showtime’s telecast of the Cornelius Bundrage-Ishe Smith card Saturday evening to promote his new deal with the network. He also was promoting his fighter, J’Leon Love, who is part of The Money Team, and who beat Derrick Findley. Mayweather worked in Love’s corner for the fight and tweeted about it. Guerrero responded to that tweet, telling Money to get used to being in the corner — an intimation that he would end the champ’s fighting career: @floydmayweather hope u liked working corners I’m gonna make it permanent pretty boy! The fans want it @shosports 70 days left buddy! #43-1 — Robert Guerrero (@GHOSTBOXING) February 24, 2013 Nothing like some solid trash talk to get everyone excited for the fight. You have to love Guerrero saying he’s going to hand Mayweather his first career loss. Guerrero has been calling out Floyd since beating Andre Berto in November. It was reported a month later that the two would be fighting in May, but that wasn’t confirmed until recently. Mayweather even tweeted that he was going to face Devon Alexander, probably because he was trying to throw everyone off the scent ahead of the announcement of his big deal with Showtime. I know Mayweather is undefeated and considered invincible, but he took plenty of shots against Miguel Cotto in his last fight, and he is getting up there at age 36. I don’t see him fighting a whole lot more in his career, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him struggle against the Ghost. I bet it goes the distance and that Mayweather takes plenty of shots.

  • would LOVE< LOVE to see Mayweather fall and fall hard, he has been a thorn in boxings side for ever. My only regret is he came into the fight game after the real deal of men retired Marvin Hagler would of broke his spine with a upper cut, sugar Ray would of hit him with so many lefts he would of ask for a right hand. Guerrero take care of buisness
