Believe it or not, this is yet another article, or an update to be exact, on Robert Guerrero and his trek to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.
As we know, Guerrero showed not only heart, but also his ability to take the big punches and give some back. Beating Andre Berto sure means a lot for Guerrero, and it means even more to the sport of boxing. Guerrero showed that he is back, and that he means business, while Berto was suddenly thrown far back in the ranks of boxing, and will not have to fight his way back to the top, which will not longer be a matter of winning one bout.
Of course after the fight, Guerrero wasted no time in calling out Floyd Mayweather Jr., and discussing how he will bean the fighter with the highest ring IQ:
“Now I have shown everyone that I can fight the best. That is why I want to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. Many have said that all I want to do is just make some more money by fighting bigger names, but today everyone saw that I mean business and that I truly want to fight the best out there,” stated Guerrero.
“There needs to be an individualized plan against every opponent. We will take our time in learning all that Mayweather Jr., and crate a fight plan. It is impossible to compare Floyd and Berto. Mayweather has excellent defensive skills, and is very mobile. I am not planning on running from him, like many others that only thrown a one-two combination. I am planning on fighting him. You saw that I am not afraid to trade punches and fight. I am not afraid of anything. I feel that I can beat Mayweather Jr.,” continued Robert.
Despite the rumors that Al Haymon entered Guerrero’s locker room after the fight to congratulate him on a job well done, I am not convinced that Mayweather Jr. is truly interested in fighting Guerrero. Or at least I hope not.
First of all, I wish the fighters find a new way of making their case against Mayweather Jr. Saying that they know how to beat Floyd is simply getting old and annoying. Yes, everyone had a plan until it fails, and truthfully, thus far a lot of various intricate plans against Mayweather Jr. have failed miserably. There has to be a completely new approach.
I like Guerrero and always have. I was very excited to see him come back to boxing, and am convinced he is here to stay make a splash. Having said that, his chances of beating Mayweather Jr., based on his previous two fights, are abysmal. This is not because he didn’t do a good job, he actually impressed the entire boxing community with how well he performed, but it’s the competition that he performed well against is what bothers me. Aydin and Berto are so far from what Mayweather Jr. does in the ring, that I feel Guerrero is simply not acknowledging that he would be fighting against a style he has yet to face.
Bad decision on his part, and if Mayweather Jr. decides to make some easy money by taking advantage of Guerrero’s win over Berto as the reason and the motive to accept the challenge, then I feel sorry for you and I.
Guerrero has all the tools needed to beat anyone he wants, but before putting them to work, he needs to learn how to use them.
