By Edward Chaykovsky Trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. expects his son, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., to face mandatory challenger Robert "The Ghost Guerrero on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. During recent interviews, Floyd Jr. said he was possibly going to work with his father for the May return, because his regular trainer, uncle Roger Mayweather, is having health related issues.

 

Mayweather Sr. says Guerrero beat up former champion Andre Berto - because Berto made the mistake of trying to fight like Floyd Jr. "I think he'll fight Guerrero next. [Andre] Berto got beat up [by Guerrero] because he didn't know what he was doing. Berto should have fought like he fights, not like how Floyd fights.

 

He needs to fight his game, not Floyd's," Mayweather Sr. told Brad Cooney of 8countnews.com. He says Floyd will be too smart for Guerrero. "I think Floyd wins. Little Floyd is too smart for him. Anyway you want to look at it, Floyd is too smart for him," Mayweather Sr. said.

 

 

There are people who think Floyd is slowing down after a tougher than expected win over Miguel Cotto in May. Mayweather Sr. says his son was sick and nearly withdrew from the contest. "Let me say this, I told people that Cotto was going to give Floyd a good fight. I was told that Floyd didn't feel good that night and actually thought about pulling out of that fight. He fought him anyway, and he proved himself again," Mayweather Sr. said.

So they are doing

Floyd/RG
Canelo/Trout

As one PPV?

Thats a good card and a smart strategy by the promoters. Floyd is gonna sell but you add Canelo and you get even more fans to buy it.

Plus it sets up a Floyd/Canelo fight in Sept if they both win.

Card should do 1.5 mill buys.

Oh I see, I think when Canelo fought Cintron they showed it on a Mayweather PPV. Wonder why they're doing different locations Phone Post

yea it'll likely be one card, different locations=more money, Canelo will sell out where ever he's at, likely LA.

Broner possibly being on the May 4 PPV too will make it a stacked card.

I know that no one seems very enthused for Robert Guerrero but I think he can give Floyd some problems. The guy is a versatile and smart boxer who can fight from the outside or from the inside.

I'm hearing Trout got arrested for being drunk and getting into a fight at a bar. Any truth to this?

Martinez says only way the rematch happens, if JCC agrees to a random drug test.

Donaire will ask Rigondeaux to submit to random testing, if/when they fight.

I am from the netherlands so watching a lot of decent boxing is somewhat of a challenge. Any tips on where i might be able to find a nice stream/ torrent. I do not mind paying for PVV but even the bigger events ( like Manny vs Marquez) are impossible to get ( topteam only stream the PVV for people in the States).

Any tips would be much appreciated. Phone Post

@ChrisMannixSI Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer tells SI that @NoDoubtTrout is "being considered" for Canelo but "at this point, don't think it will happen"

If I'm Martinez I wouldn't trip. Chavez jr is so smug that he most likely will train the same way and keep smoking the weeds and think he can turn it on at any moment. I bet that 12th round gave him false confidence that he almost won instead of coming to grips with the fact he was completely out classed for 90% of the fight Phone Post

thanks TBI

no doubt Pharo, he wants to do things his own way, don't know how that'll go with either Nacho or Garcia if they pick him up.

Marking my spot on the thread, created this acct a few months ago after seeing the thread build up and have to complement alot of good info and conversation passed on here, Props BarryBonds and all the video contributors, links, etc. Good way to catch up on alot of today's fighters.

To echo Barry and Pharo, agreed on jr. Watching the 'spontaneous' training sessions of 24/7 was rough. Telling Martinez he's too old and finished to the camera at what looked like a decent party. I'm sure Nacho might just pass on that one, you never know what a friendly word from chavez sr. might get him though..just a thought.
