Floyd Mayweather Jr. thoroughly dominated Robert Guerrero on Saturday in Las Vegas to improve to 44-0. Mayweather was hit a bit in the early rounds, but Guerrero hardly touched him after that. Guerrero landed 113 total punches. The lack of hits Floyd took was a big change from his previous fight when he was belted pretty badly by Miguel Cotto, who landed 75 power shots. Though I and others believe the difference between the amount of punishment Mayweather took in this fight compared to his last is due to the skill level of his opponents, his father, trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., believes he is the reason for the change. Mayweather Sr. has had a tempestuous relationship with his son, but the two reunited for this fight. Mayweather Sr. believes that was the reason his son hardly got hit. “If you’ve been getting hit all the time, then I come along and now you ain’t getting hit … what’s that telling you? It’s so plain to see Ray Charles can see it!” Mayweather Sr. said at the post-fight news conference. Mayweather Sr. also expressed regret over his past problems with his son and said he was happy to be working with him again. “I feel good about me and my son getting back together.” Mayweather Jr. agreed that his father made a big difference. He also said he was the one who reached out to bring in his father. “[In] the Miguel Cotto fight, I felt like I got hit with shots I shouldn’t have been hit with. So I had to bring the defense master back — my father,” Mayweather Jr. explained. Floyd Jr. also credited his father for developing an excellent gameplan. “My dad said, ‘I’m going to tell you what’s going to get him — the right hand,’ ” Mayweather Jr. explained. “He said, ‘Yes, you can use the jab, but I’ll tell you what’s going to get him — right hands all day.’ So I went out there and executed the gameplan that was given to me.” Sure enough, Guerrero couldn’t stop Mayweather’s right hand. Mayweather Jr. says things went really well in his training camp and that he, his father, and his uncle, Roger, all worked well together. The result, no surprise, was an easy win for Floyd Jr.
