Roberto “The Ghost” Guerrero will finally get the huge money fight that he has been longing for as he is scheduled to face Floyd Mayweather Jr on May 4 in Las Vegas, a fight that is expected to hit strides next year.
Guerrero, who holds an impressive 31-1-1 record with 18 knockouts, will have nothing to lose but everything to gain against Mayweather. The California-native recently scored an emphatic unanimous decision win over Andre Berto last month in California wherein he knocked down Berto in the first and second round. Earlier this year, the 29-year-old interim World Boxing Council welterweight champion also scored a unanimous decision win against Selcuk Aydin last July.
Mayweather, on the other hand, was pushed to the limits by Miguel Cotto last May before escaping with a unanimous decision win over the Puerto Rican challenger. After the win, Mayweather, who is undefeated in 43 bouts with 26 KOs, spent two months in jail for domestic violence charges and it remains to be seen whether the jail time will affect the physique of the Grand Rapids-native.
Guerrero will definitely be a heavy underdog against Mayweather but “The Ghost” is expected to give “Pretty Boy Floyd” a run for his money. Guerrero may not be as skilled and as experienced as Mayweather, but he has already shown that he can take the next big step to stardom after his recent sensational victories that gave him the opportunity to face Mayweather.
Fight fans and boxing aficionados are still yearning for a showdown between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. But now that the fight they want might not happen at all, Guerrero has the opportunity to make a name for himself. Will Guerrero score a gigantic upset against Mayweather?
