Mayweather and Guerrero in heated confrontation.
The hunt for Mayweather’s opponent quite some time and many names were mentioned before the official announcement was made few weeks ago.
Names like Saul Alvarez, Devon Alexander, Austin Trout and many others where thrown around but in the end it was Guerrero the one rewarded with the highly seeked Pay-Per-View date with Maywethear.
Now with everything set, both fighters finally meet face to face and each one had a chance to express their feelings and believes towards each other.
In the video provided by CSNBayArea.com , Mayweather and Guerrero can be seen in front of the camera’s exchanging words as they both guarantee victories on May 4th.
Mayweather has always looked for advantages against his opponent long before they step into the ring against him. In Guerrero’s case its clear that he won’t be an exception.
With bragging rights about his unbeaten record and his power with the networks due to his high Pay-Per-View number, his opponent are usually left with little ammunition as he continually barks his was to fight night.
Mayweather’s last outing was against veteran Miguel Cotto last September in a fight many called his toughest and most competitive one to date. In unusual form, Mayweather’s face was bleeding and beaten up in the middle rounds of the bout and for the first time in his career, many had had him loosing more than 3 round in a row.
Even though Cotto was able to outbox Mayeather for several rounds, in the end it was not enough and Mayweather was able to regain control of the fight and finish off in dominating form to maintain his undefeated record and most importantly his bragging rights.
Guerreo on the other hand is coming off a very impressive performance against Andre Berto this past November as both fighters slugged their way for 12 rounds in a fight of the year candidate.
With guts and will, Guerrero was able to outbox and out hustle the tough and determined Berto who just keep coming. Many fans that type of fight as his only chance against the smart and masterful Mayweather.
The fight was a statement for Guerrero who has long seeked a defining victory in his career in hopes of landing a huge pay day fight. The performances against Berto certainly did it because in the sport of boxing today, it doesn’t get any bigger than a fight against Floyd "Money" Mayweather.
In the past, leading up to every Mayweather fight, fans were given an inside look into each fighter’s training camp with HBO's critically acclaim show 24/7. This time around Mayweather is no longer with the network that made him a star and instead has jumped over the rival network Showtime where he has signed a six fight deal.
But no worries, Showtime has their own version of HBO’s 24/7 and there is no doubt that they will find a way to provide the same level of entertainment that the fans have gotten used to from Mayweather.
