In a bruising tussle, Floyd Mayweather should narrowly outscore Robert Guerrero to remain unbeaten

Robert Guerrero will not be an easy opponent for Floyd Mayweather.

Interim WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero will scrap legendary prizefighter Floyd Mayweather on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 30-year-old Guerrero (31-1-1-2, 18 KOs), who was detained in March at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and charged with illegal possession of an unloaded firearm, most recently vacated the squared circle in November as a unanimous decision victor over Andre Berto.

Comparatively, the 36-year-old Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), a five-division, eight-belt winner who earned The Ring “Fighter of the Year” award in 1998 and 2007, outscored Miguel Cotto to acquire the WBA (Super) & WBC Diamond light middleweight crowns in May 2012.

Guerrero, a Californian of Mexican descent who has won 16 consecutive bouts, last fell as a professional via points to Gamaliel Diaz in March 2006.

A former WBA and WBO lightweight and two-time IBF featherweight titlist, “The Ghost” is undaunted, extremely tough and his southpaw stance could pester the reigning pound-for-pound king.

Beyond confidence, and possibly even more beneficial for Guerrero, Mayweather is becoming a pugilistic geriatric whose inactivity and stint behind bars can only work as a hindrance.

Nevertheless, in a bruising tussle, Floyd Mayweather should narrowly outscore Robert Guerrero to emerge triumphant this Cinco de Mayo weekend in “Sin City.”
