One day, quite likely, somebody will taint Floyd Mayweathers' record. He could retire undefeated, or he could not make it through his new six fight, 30 month deal with Showtime unscathed.
Robert Guerrero truly seems to believe in his heart that he will be the one to hand Floyd his first loss, on May 4 in Las Vegas. Not sure that one or two of the guys who fought "Money" recently truly felt in their heart that they'd beat the technical wizard...
I asked Guerrero on Wednesday night about getting the gig. Has to feel good, right?
"I'm feeling extremely confident that I will come out victorious," he said. "He's never been in the ring with a fighter like me. He's in trouble!"
I told the 31-1 boxer, who is 29 years old, that I was happy for him from a financial standpoint. In America, we pay more for medical care and coverage than I think anywhere in the world. Robert's wife has dealt with a couple bouts of leukemia, so you know it will be helpful to pay some off those bills, and give his family financial breathing room...
Even if you wanted to see Floyd fight someone else, you have to be happy that this fight will help the man and his family...
"I'm happy I will be able to handle all my expenses and take careof my family," he said. "But to be honest it's not the money that drives me, it's my legacy."
