Guerrero3-28-2013Team Guerrero, Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions released a statement early this evening about boxer Robert Guerrero's Thursday morning arrest in NY at JFK Airport, for gun possession.

LOS ANGELES (March 28) - Early this morning Six-Time and Four Division World Champion Robert Guerrero was checking in his luggage at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, bound for Las Vegas, and, as he was doing so, made sure to advise the authorities that they needed to be aware that he had a firearm, which was unloaded and in a locked safe box with his luggage to be checked. Guerrero (seen above in Tom Casino-Showtime photo, taken Tuesday in NYC at media gathering)was carrying no ammunition and was within his legal right to possess such firearm in the state in which he resides. He was then arrested. At an arraignment held before the New York State Supreme Court for Queens County, the court, after hearing the pertinent facts of the case, released Guerrero on his own recognizance. The next hearing in this matter is scheduled for after Robert's May 4 fight against eight-time and five-division world champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather.

We are very pleased Robert Guerrero was released on his own recognizance this afternoon in the wake of this incident and that he is on his way back to Las Vegas to continue training for his highly anticipated May 4 bout against Mayweather.

It's really a tragedy how a law that was meant to protect people and save lives could potentially and utterly destroy the livelihood of a thriving young boxers career.

After doing just a bit of research, I've discovered that there's not much leadway regarding the guilt or innocence of New Yorks strict gun laws except having possession of a gun, regardless of intent or transparency or circumstances. I hope I'm wrong.

I think it would be wise for Guerrero to garner all the support he can.

Congressmen, Ombudsmen, community support, partitions etc.. because this situation can potentially turn into a nightmare.

After checking around the web it's clear to me that if this had happened to Floyd,.. the rabid fans who like to hate sports figures on a personal basis would have been expressing their jubilatant approval while condemning Mayweather to the deepest, loneliest hole designed to keep men in incarceration. (shoulda a known better). Floyd is not the devil, and Guerrero still can't walk on water.

I'm not sure how Floyd was able to defeat Cotto, knowing he was going to have to forfiet his freedom within a few days after the fight, But Guerrero must now do the same by turning to his faith, .... becoming bigger than his situation... and trusting his God for his deliverance.

This latest drama will either toss Guerrero into the forge,.. the forge of faith where he will become even more focused and more dangerous in the ring.....
or it could lead to a lack of focus that could potentially lead to his undoing at the surgical hand and eye coordination of a boxing Icon.

Guerrero could go into the zone like Buster Douglas did when his mother died, and shrug off the grief and sorrow to fight the fight of his life. who knows.....time will tell.

But I sincerly hope he can get some political power brokers on his side to overcome his current legal hurdles.

If Guerrero wins,.. that could go a long way in getting the charges dropped or a reduced sentance.

Wow! The Cali Holy Humbug Ghost should have known before he had blown -- I mean flown. I think that he did it for publicity and is using his holy-moly bullsyet to increase profits for his surefire arse thrashing that Money May is going to put on him.

I don't believe any Mexican is that dumb to go to a NYC airport with even an unfilled water gun. The whole jive appeals to be a well-managed staged pubicity stunt to me. After some contacts in da loop hollering at me. I will say that Guerrero is full of ______ _______ and _______. Holla!

Radam I don't see this as a publicity stunt to gather more ppv buys.


If that's what he needed he should have been filmed this weekend handing out food to the homeless

on Easter, passing out clothes and supplies or the poor while mayweather

is at the strip club.


Making himself look like a saint against mayweathers Money first persona

woulda been more helpful than looking like a dope at the airport

In the spirit of Easter I gotta say Mayweather does do some nice charity things. like paying for generro hernadez funeral ect. guerrero should use this to fuel him. 3rd biggest town in georgia hasnt had a rape or murder in 30 years. why? by law each household must own a firearm. legal gun holders reduce crime. gun fee zones is target practice for the nutjobs. I was at the garden city ny train station when colin fergonson shot everyone on the train with a handgun. train=gun free zone.
