Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Robert Guerrero are set to square off in the ring on Saturday night, and there has been no shortage of drama leading up to the fight. Guerrero has been given the chance of a lifetime, but at Wednesday’s pre-fight press conference it seemed like his father was more anxious for the fight than he was. Ruben Guerrero, who is also Robert’s trainer, took the podium very briefly before he was basically pried away by Oscar de la Hoya. “May 4th, baby, you guys are gonna find out,” Ruben began. “My son’s blessed. I’m blessed, no matter what I am. I am what I am. I’m the real deal. I don’t talk s***, man. I back it up. Anytime, anywhere, like I said. “And we’re gonna beat up that woman beater. The one that beat up his wife, man — his wife in front of his kids! You guys like that s***? You like this guy, (the) woman beater? He must have learned that from his dad. We’re gonna beat that woman beater! He’s gonna get it from a real man! Damn woman beaters. We’re gonna beat that woman beater down!” Mayweather simply kept his head buried in his cell phone and chuckled most of the time, although his face did turn a bit serious when Ruben first brought up his checkered past. As many of you know, Mayweather has been in trouble with the law several times regarding instances of domestic violence. He served a county jail sentence from June 1, 2012 until August of 2012 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery. Earlier this week, Robert Guerrero released a video stating he is going to pull a Buster Douglas on Mayweather. If Floyd doesn’t watch his back, Ruben may try to Buster Douglas him before Saturday night even rolls around.
