I will no doubt be ordering the Guerrero-Mayweather fight but I wonder what kind of fight it will be.This one can go in either direction.Either Floyd Mayweather will badly expose the Ghost until he really is a ghost in the ring or Guerrero will take it to Mayweather in a way that makes it a good,competitive fight.
There are two things going against Robert Guerrero that can make this fight all Mayweather.The first is that Guerrero does get hit..sometimes alot.So now he’s in their with the best counter puncher in the sport who will tag him everytime he tries to rush in.The other problem for Guerrero is that he likes to roughhouse and when you roughhouse Mayweather like Shane Mosley tried he ups his game even more and that’s trouble.Mayweather will not let Guerrero do anything dirty.We all see what happened when Victor Ortiz tried that.Most of Ortiz elbows and punches just would up being blocked and the ref was all over Ortiz to the point he was so frustfrated he headbutted Floyd.Guerrero will have to badly outwork Mayweather because he doesn’t have the power to hurt Mayweather or KO him.
The one hope Guerrero has going for him is if he can out work Mayweather with his reach and jab.You never know when an athlete’s age will catch up with him.Mayweather is not as fleet of foot as he once was but his defense is still top-tier.
My gut feeling is this will be a good,competitive fight much like the Cotto/Mayweather fight was.However,even in that fight you still never really felt Mayweather was in any danger of getting knocked down or losing.This fight will be similar.Guerrero will go full throttle but in the end Floyd’s counter punching and defense will prove too much for The Ghost.Mayweather by wide decision is a good bet.
