Fight Pick & Preview - Floyd "Money" Mayweather vs. Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero:
On May 4 at the MGM, pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will try to reclaim the WBC Welterweight Title when he takes on champion Robert Guerrero. It has been exactly a year since Mayweather defeated Miguel Cotto in this same arena. In fact, the MGM has been Mayweather’s home base, with all his bouts taking place here since 2006. Guerrero has fought at the MGM once--beating Michael Katsidis in 2011.
Mayweather, Jr. is a huge favorite at -800. It’s understandable to an extent. Point blank, he has never lost. The last time anyone came close was over a decade ago. At the same time, he is 36. Add in the fact that Guerrero is a 27-year-old champion in his prime who has specifically called for this fight for years, and it hardly seems like a foregone conclusion.
