 Prayer before workout Readers, GuerreroLAS VEGAS (April 22, 2013) – With less than three weeks to go before “MAY DAY: Mayweather vs. Guerrero,’’ Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero participated in media workouts on back-to-back days last week in Las Vegas.

Eight-Time and Five-Division World Champion Mayweather worked out Wednesday, April 17 at the Mayweather Boxing Club and Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion Guerrero (seen in above Esther Lin photo) on Tuesday, April 16 at the IBA Gym.

Joining Mayweather on Wednesday was Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, and several up and coming boxers from Mayweather Promotions – J’Leon Love, who faces Gabriel Rosado on the May 4 SHOWTIME PPV undercard from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and Luis Arias and Badou Jack, who will appear in non-televised fights on May 4. .

Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, was on hand at both Mayweather and Guerrero’s workouts and expressed his excitement for the mega-event.

See below what the world champions, executives and other boxers said:

FLOYD MAYWEATHER, Eight-Time and Five-Division World Champion

“I’ve got to give thanks to everybody; there are so many different sponsors, Corona, Valvoline, MGM Grand and so many other people that have supported me throughout the years, all my fans, the media, my followers on Twitter. To SHOWTIME, CBS and all the other networks that have been showing love to me.

“SHOWTIME has let me do a lot of creative things. ‘30 Days In May,’ ‘ALL ACCESS’ and we have another documentary coming out on CBS. I have a new relationship and a new marriage and I’m happy now.

“Freedom is very, very important. You can be locked up and be rich, but it’s just like being poor if you don’t have freedom. So, freedom is very, very important. That’s how I feel.

“I have another big fight on May 4th and it is against Robert Guerrero, ‘The Ghost.’ This guy is very, very confident and he believes in himself. We know he has only one loss, but they say a true champion can bounce back.

“It’s obvious he did something right to get to this point. It’s obvious he did something right in the Andre Berto fight. He dedicated himself to his craft, which is boxing. He stayed focused and he listened to his corner.

“I want a fighter to come in confident. We don’t want the odds to be crazy, but the odds will always be crazy because I’ve proven myself over the years. But we want a fighter like Robert Guerrero who’s confident and believes in his skills. Only thing that we [The Money Team] can do is push me to the limit and take me to that next level. That’s what it’s about.

“Now he [Robert Guerrero] got the fight with me. The game plan is to go out there, be smart and get the victory the best way I know how, continue to give the fans what they want to see, work hard and set record-breaking numbers.

“I’m a winner. I like to perform. I like to entertain and that’s what it’s about. It’s about going out and giving the fans what they want - excitement.

“I’ve faced every style so it’s not hard for me to make an adjustment. I just have to go out there and see my dad’s game plan is going to be.

“Like I always say for every fight, everybody had a game plan. All 43 of my opponents had a game plan and all 43 opponents came up short. So, I could care less what my opponent has to say. There isn’t a blueprint on how to beat me. No one has found a way to break the Mayweather code.

“Being a legend, wanting your name mentioned in the mix of other fighters’ names, that’s why I work so hard right now. I’ve been fighting since 1987. I’ve been a professional for 17 years. I’ve been dedicated to my craft.

“I don’t think the layoff will affect me. My dad is back in my corner. My dad is my lead trainer, but I’m also working with my uncle Roger. The Mayweather family, as of right now, has good chemistry.

“Camp has gone tremendously. My weight has already been made, and I’m ready to fight. I feel good and, like I said, I couldn’t do it without the support from the fans. When I was locked away, the fans wrote me letters and sent cards and I really appreciated that.

“This is world championship boxing and it’s always blood, sweat and tears. It’s not a sport if there isn’t blood, sweat and tears. I’m happy that my dad is back in my camp and we’re going strong. It’s good working with him. If we have a problem and we’re not seeing eye-to-eye, we pull each other to the side, talk about it and we get on the same page.”

ROBERT GUERRERO, Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion

“My lucky number is 44. So you know, I’m ready to go. I’m excited and I’ve worked hard for this. I’ve worked hard to be in this position. God has blessed me with a lot. I’m ready. I’ve had the right fights to be here. I’ve been built up the right way. I’m ready to go. I feel ready. I had two good fights as a welterweight weight class before this. It was what I needed to break into the weight class.

“You’ve got to be ready to do everything [when fighting Floyd Mayweather]. People say you need to have an A, B and C game plan, but with Floyd, you need an A to Z game plan. You’ve got to be ready for whatever because Floyd is the type of guy that makes adjustments here and there and he makes it tough for fighters to get in there with him. You’ve got to be ready to make those adjustments; we’ve been practicing a lot of stuff. Our game plan is to go out there and be 100 percent ready and be able to make those adjustments. Throughout my career everybody has seen that I’ve been able to make adjustments.

“For a lot of guys, Floyd gets into their head and he frustrates them. They lose their game plan. That game plan goes out the door. That being said, you also have to be able to execute a game plan and a lot of these guys know what they need to do, but they don’t have the ability to do it.

“You’ve got to go in there and fight an intelligent fight with Floyd. He is a very sharp guy, a very smart guy in the ring. That is why he is 43-0. It’s about being smart, using your head in the ring and maintaining your game plan.

“My wife’s battle with cancer really made me grow as a man. It makes you mentally strong. She is fighting for her life. Being a caretaker makes you a mentally strong person. That is why I laugh when you say this is just a fight compared to that because it is. It’s just a fight. That is one of the things that I learned from her whole fight with cancer. Being mentally strong, being able to hold it together and pushing through is what counts.

“[When asked if the pressure will affect him] I laugh because it is laughable. To have people ask me questions and this and that, that isn’t pressure at all. Raising two kids and having a wife dying from cancer, now that’s pressure. So this is no problem. This just comes with the territory and you’ve got to do it to take care of business.”

LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions

“Mayweather vs. Guerrero is the biggest fight of the year. Everyone is excited, and we want the fans to be engaged. It’s going to be a great, great fight.

“I think he [Guerrero] put himself in this position by beating a very good fighter in Andre Berto. It was a very exciting fight and he proved that he could fight Floyd. I think he put himself in the position where he became more than a viable opponent. He became ‘the guy.’

“It doesn’t matter what the manager says and it doesn’t matter what the promoter says. It will be up to the fighters come May 4th.

“He’s [Floyd Mayweather] a lot more laid back, and he values freedom. Having been incarcerated was definitely a life-changing experience for him. It was something he hadn’t experienced before. No one wants to be in that situation. There’s nothing to prepare you for something like that. The environment and conditions he was placed in made it tough. But that’s behind him. He did his time and it’s time to move on.”

RICHARD SCHAEFER, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions

“It’s a Mayweather fight and a Mayweather fight is the Super Bowl of boxing.

“A Mayweather fight means a sold out venue and great buzz in Las Vegas. It’s going to be one of those nights when The Money Team will show up against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero.

“Robert Guerrero has moved up several weight classes and is always perceived as the little guy, but he is bigger than Mayweather. He has a height advantage on him.

“Guerrero is one of the most underrated fighters. When this fight was made, he was a nine to one underdog, and I checked yesterday and now he’s a four to one [underdog]. As people get to know Robert Guerrero, through the CBS exposure and the pay-per-view promotion, etc., I think people are starting to realize that there is a reason Robert Guerrero hasn’t lost in almost several years.

“I have no doubt that Guerrero is the most dangerous opponent that Mayweather has faced in a long time.”

“Robert hasn’t really lost since 2008 and the one loss he has, the only loss on his record, was against a guy who we found out later was on performance enhancing drugs. They had a rematch and he [Guerrero] stopped him inside of three rounds.

“Robert really is undefeated. He has the size advantage. He has the youth, and for those people who watched his fight against Berto, they could see how remarkably he was able to take Berto’s punches. Berto is one of the toughest, hardest punching guys in the 147-pound weight class. He is a natural 147-pounder and Robert just walked through him. That just shows you how tough he is.

“Now if Guerrero is able to take Berto’s shots, how can Floyd Mayweather possibly hurt him? If you can’t hurt Robert Guerrero, then he is going to be coming all night long, and it is going to be a long night for Floyd Mayweather.

“I know it is going to be a great fight because Robert is coming to fight. He has wanted this fight for so long. Over the last three or four years they [Team Guerrero] kept saying to me, ‘I want Mayweather. I want Mayweather.’ So finally it is here. Two weeks to go. Robert Guerrero is motivated.

“He [Guerrero] isn’t just fighting for himself, but he is doing it for all the cancer survivors as well. He’s getting tremendous support from the Christian community as well.

“Of course Floyd Mayweather is in a class of his own. He’s undefeated and pound-for-pound the best fighter and as he always says, ‘43 have tried and 43 have failed and this is going to be number 44.’ So we’ll see.’’

J’LEON LOVE, Rising Middleweight Star

“Having Floyd [Mayweather] as a mentor and seeing him train in the gym everyday is such a special opportunity for a young fighter like myself. He is the best in boxing and just being around him and watching him train the way that he does has already taught me a lot.

"I’m ready to go on May 4th and I’m so grateful to Mayweather Promotions for giving me the opportunity to open the pay-per-view portion of the event. I’ve been training hard. I’m prepared to go in there against Gabriel Rosado and give it my all.

"I don't take anything for granted. I feel this is a moment in my career that I will remember for a long time and I’m looking forward to showing Floyd and boxing fans worldwide that they can count on me to become a world champion in the near future."

BADOU JACK, Top Light Heavyweight Prospect

“Eddie [Mustafa Muhammad] is a great trainer. He’s like a father figure to me. He’s like family. He’s a great motivator, so having him in my corner makes me very confident.

“He [Floyd Mayweather] is one of the greatest fighters of our era, so it is a great feeling for a guy like that to have your back.”

LUIS ARIAS, Top Super Middleweight Prospect

“Camp is going really well. I’m definitely excited. Obviously this is a huge platform for me and a great opportunity for me. It’s an exciting part of my life to be only 4-0 and be fighting on such a big stage, but I’m ready.

“I’m young and I’m hungry. This is what I wanted.

“Sparring with Floyd is an unbelievable thing. My confidence is at an all time high.”

riverside says:

Not going to happen! Floyd might make it exiting for a while ,brawling with Guerrero in the trenches. The ghost is way over his head! Easy Money for Floyd! Too many skills for the ghost to handle.

Radam G says:

NO! NO! NO! Not The Son, The Father or the Holy Ghost Will [not] Pull an upset! Bobby and Ruby Guerrero are gettin' on their humbugness. Fam May is going to evaporate 'em. This is real life, not some imaginary PUMP-UP religious smack talk on steroids.

The holy [humbug] son and the wacked-out, weight-pumping pops can talk nonsense all that they desire. But on their arses, Fam May is to set on FIRE! Cali [humbug] Gs probably need to purchase some holy water or miracle water or some type of imaginary stuff to put out the fire. Maybe they have themselves some Holy Olive Oil from Jerusalem too. It will work wonders on all their glove burns that Money May is going cause on the Cali Ghost's mug and torso.

The bout will be Money May conducting one-easy boksing clinic. I'm reminded of what all Marvis Frazier and Jesus were going to do to Larry "Easton Assassin" Holmes. The late, great "Smokin" Joe Frazier tried to get his son off that codependent imagination of Jesus being on your side.

God Is Good! He Hasn't Let His Son Jesus Show Up Physically here on this planet in clearly over two-thousand year, since those Roman put the beatdown on THE SON! Maybe the Cali Ghost Bobby G and Pops Ruby need to learn from that long past of Jesus and The Father. Holla!

SouthPaul says:

Majaorly Mega upset when he drops the usual, typical decision to PBF.


Team MAyweather has perfected the art of prizefighting. The biggest prize with not always the biggest threat. Winning the supa' mega lottery every time they step into the ring. I ain't mad but I won't ordering it. I'm going to Radam's house to sponge free fight, free food. Unforgivable hobo/mooch status that night.

Radam G says:

I'll be in Sin City at the bout sitting in row six with my striped Fedora on. Danggit! Showtime just cameo shot me from a distance, and made me look FAT. WTF! To bad I cannot sue. If you are to show the guy who hide in plain sight, don't Al Haymon him. Hehehe! Holla!

You, my friend, are one funny human.

amayseng says:

I'm with southpaul.


Radam what time can we pop by?


Ill bring some grey goose!

Carmine Cas says:

Expect the unexpected.....

Radam G says:

Hehehehe! You guys can pop by at any time, but I won't be there. I'll be in Sin City, getting on my sin -- I mean win. And, of course to see Money May's boxing clinc. I'm hoping a fight break out between the Cali Ghost Daddy Ruben G and Pops Joy May. I'm taking heavy bets on that one. Holla!

amayseng says:

It will break out in the weigh in and be broken up quickly.

I hope the ghost sucker punches Floyd when he tries to get in his face.

Can't believe Ortiz let Floyd strangle him.

He should have tackled him or something.

Radam G says:

BIG agreement about Vicious Vic. He become Wuzzy Dic*. No boxer should have let another boxer dis him like that. Holla!

amayseng says:

No doubt have some respect but also u gotta show

Floyd or anyone you're fighting that you aren't taking any bullshit.

amayseng says:

I mean that was ortizs chance.

The world knows Floyd is the better boxer in the ring.

Ortiz has his chance to manhandle lil Floyd physically all over the stage and embarrass him.

deepwater says:

@ am get some Tito's vodka instead. its distilled 6 times. smoothest vodka I have ever tasted.
“Freedom is very, very important. You can be locked up and be rich, but it’s just like being poor if you don’t have freedom. So, freedom is very, very important. That’s how I feel." Wow a tear came to my eye hearing that. Good job Floyd. "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. "
Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer (1706 - 1790) ....That quote is very important during these times.
Hope to see a good fight,would be nice to see some toe to toe. $ on old Guerrero in the parking lot.

deepwater says:

BIG agreement about Vicious Vic. He become Wuzzy Dic*. No boxer should have let another boxer dis him like that. Holla!
ortiz should of spit in his face or bit his nose off. no one gets choked! unless that funny guy ortiz likes it.

ali says:

It's boxing so u never know but I doubt the ghost will be the first guy to beat Mayweather.

amayseng says:

Titos it is.

Ill snatch it up and give it a try.


Crazier things have happened but one attribute the ghos has

that no mayweather opponent has had since odlh

is mental composure and good ability to adapt.

DaveB says:

Man I would like to see the two fathers fighting on the undercard. Man would I love to see that for real. Pops Guerrerro can talk some junk. Take it like a man.

SouthPaul says:

His dad looks and acts like someone who was on the set of Blood In, Blood Out ... & remained in full character every since.


Dino

Thank you, sir.

brownsugar says:

How can 95% of the TSS go to sleep on RG... a proven champion.. A resourceful champion, with no respect for that mighty ring General Mayweather. ... Or should I call him Napoleon... By the time Napoleon captured the world, his troops were spread thin... Some were starving, and many had contracted all manner of infectious diseases. Gangrene.. Discontentment and jungle rot tore through their moral.

Now Mayweather...through the benefit of several premature retirements,
has inherited the throne.

But is he fit to rule.
His calvary has been decimated by father time so he's lost his mobility
His armour stripped by rust and inactivity ...
So much so that even a scrub like Canelo is considered a lethal threat.
Floyds kingdom is teetering on the precipice of destruction.
Yet the ancient King struggles to maintain it.
Guerrero = the right time + the right place.
A game of thrones...and a whole lot more.

The Good Doctor says:

No.

amayseng says:

I say the ghosts game plan will be to stay short and sharp and active.

I think he will not chase Floyd down or try to lay on him ala berto.

I think the ghost is smart enough to know there isn't a chance at the KO

and the strategy is to win rounds on activity and points.

There will be moments of in fighting, but not as Floyd expects.

What are y'all's expectations of the game plans?

ali says:

Man I would like to see the two fathers fighting on the undercard. Man would I love to see that for real. Pops Guerrerro can talk some junk. Take it like a man.

I wish the fathers could have been atleast the first fight on the PPV card.

ali says:

Amayseng I think Guerrero game plan for the most part will be to out work Mayweather. He knows Mayweather doesn't throw alot of punches per round so maybe the judges will award him some of the close rounds because of his activity. I also think he will try and stealrounds similar to the way ODH did but he has to land some good punches for it to wrk. One last thing I expect the ghost to do is use his jab alot but he has to be careful cuz Floyd is so good at countering a jab but he's not as good at it against southpaws..

Mayweather game plan is the same as always hit and not be hit I expect his D to be alot better with his dad being the main trainer for this fight.

bigstinkybug says:

[COLOR="#B22222">*I told u once, I'll tell u again..
6 fights in 6 years,a perfect record may come to an end
inactivity vs natural ability,a dangerous game...
to not fight cuz ur scared to lose is a crying shame...
call him scared or call May a chicken
EVENTUALLY, father time wins over cherry pickin...

stormcentre says:

Hard to see what department, that matters, Guerrero is better than Floyd.

I don't see too many people, with marginally slower hand-speed, giving Floyd problems; let alone those that also - practically - have no defence in comparison.

Now, before anyone jumps on the bandwagon and starts crying that I am disrespecting a world champion (RG); I like Guerrero.

But his theoretical chances of winning are best described by the fact that Floyd chose him.

Nuff said.

Radam G says:

Money May is going to bring some truth to the Cali humbug Holy Ghost and Ghost Dad Ruby, the rednosed _____! Holla!

stormcentre says:

I wish the fathers could have been atleast the first fight on the PPV card.



Yes that would be good. Who would you pick?

Radam G says:

I'd pick Pops Joy May to knockout the bettlebug Ghost Dad in a down-under jump or New York minute. Holla!j

ali says:

Yes that would be good. Who would you pick?


Floyd Sr. by 2nd round knockout but Guerrero dadwill have a few good moments.

amayseng says:

Floyd sr system and reflexes ruined from drugs.


Put your money on the crazy Mexican.

(No racism implied, my nephew Mexican!).

stormcentre says:

Yeh, I don't know if Guerrero Sr. can bang.

Looking at him, it's hard to think he can move; if you know what I mean.

And then, Floyd Sr. is still pretty sharp. My guess is that his punch resistance may not be as good as Guerrero Sr's though.

brownsugar says:

Floyd sr system and reflexes ruined from drugs.


Put your money on the crazy Mexican.

(No racism implied, my nephew Mexican!).


50% of all ex-boxers-turned-tainers suffer from some type of nerve neuropathy or degenerative nerve disease. Floyd senior can still run circles around Freddy Roach.

Floyd sr brings the the type of assertive leadership Jr needs to overcome the valid threat presented by Robert Guerrero.

Instead of being told "Just box 'em" Jr will finally receive specific instructions between
Rounds... He'll need every minute of it. Rob G is no push over.

Radam G says:

Wow! About 95 percent of boxers-turned trainers don't suffer from any effects of the squared jungle. Simply for the reason that 95 percent didn't have an extended professional or amateur careers. Holla at some real boxing authorities. The typical boxers quit the game after less than 10 fights.

I won't do it, but I could literally name 100 plus boxers-turned trainers who had minimun amateur and professional boxing careers. Freddie Roach, Pops Joy May, Uncle Roger May and Ronny Shields, to name a few trainers with extended amateur/professional, are the exceptions, not the RULE!

The greatest trainer of all times -- GTOAT Angie Dundee -- never had a single fight. The late,great boxing guru Manny Steward never fought pro and fought amateur for three years. Bottomline: when it comes to 95 percent of the trainers/treachers of the sweet science, they barely suffered punishment, if any, because of no boxing or a short, short time.

Darn! The assumptions and attacks of gamers and tamers of our sport is super amazing. We are a bunch brain-damage dummies, though of all major Sports, we have champions and playas with da most edge-u-mucation [sic] and earned college degrees. I wonder WHY! C'mon TSS Artmaster Scribe S-To! Drop some knowledge on these c-fools.

WTF! Just imagine the bizarre dumbsyet claim dat I post in "broken Ebonics." OMFG! Most cyberspacers don't know sh*t 'bout boxing talk and slanguage. How are the c-posers and fakers going to know da game, if they don't know the language, and how it came about? Holla!

brownsugar says:

Well I got one question for you .... RG and this time put down the coconut juice before answering.

Do you believe Freddys disease does not come from boxing.

All ex fighters suffer from some type of brain damage .. Even the ones who train other boxers.
Doesn't make them retarded.

It just goes with the sport.

Try to think about what you say before you take my comment out of contest.

Radam G says:

The general belief in boxing is that good-to-great boxers don't make great trainers. Thus far its holds truth. Name me one P4P greats, who trained and coached a P4P great boxers from the jump. That is what I thought! Sorry! But 50 percent of the boxers-turned trainers having damage up in the membranes is one of the words -- "absurd" -- that you labeled me with. C'mon, man! Where do you get your jive from? I'm a real gamer in da game.

Now I know your flunkies will come accusing me of attacking "The best." Okay! I get it! You were just jiving and conviving! But they hear that flute and will start falling off the cliff. On this one, you're off. That is it. You are having an off day. Holla!

brownsugar says:

Don't try to make it personal RG... Because I really don't care about your personal feelings about me..try to stay on topic.

Radam G says:

I will never get in a pissing contest with you. We all know what Freddie suffers from. What GOAT Ali suffers from! What Jimmy Young suffered from! What Bruce Curry suffers from! What "Little Red" Danny Lopez suffer from! What Wilfredo Benitez suffers from. What Jerry and Mike Quarry suffered from! What the late, greats Willie Pep, Sugar Ray Robinson, Bb Joe Louis and Homicide Hank Armstrongs suffered from. But not a single one of them had an ex-boxing success in training or training from the corners. And, again, it is rare to have a long-time fighters to training fighters. There are few Archie "Old Mongoose" Moore, who served as co-trainer of the young "Big (killa) George Foreman.

Suck it up! And move on, B-Sug. Man UP! You off about 50 percent of boxers-turned trainers are damaged good. Tell the TSS scribes to help you out. Not even three percent of pro boxers become trainers in the pros or amateurs. I'm a real gamer. I really KNOW! Have a nice day. Holla!

Radam G says:

Wow! I'm not personal, so don't try that con. Forget it! And move on! Especially if you are hallucinating bullsyet from some who knows his syet. IN YOUR OWN WORDS AGAIN: "Absurd!"

WOW! Sneak attacks and thin skin, when you are wrong. Try agreeing to disagree. Take a TIMEOUT! Holla!

brownsugar says:

Everyman who gets in the ring for an extended period of time suffers some degree of brain damage.. Some are more noticeable than others. Most are not debilatated by it and can work around it. In many cases its not even noticable...So how can you say an ex boxer turned trainer hasn't lost some brain cells?

Its just an inevitable fact of life...

Incidenty what does this have to do with Floyd sr being a good trainer for Floyd which is what my original comment was about. And my comparison between Floyd senior and Roachs' mental condition in relation to their ability to coach.

amayseng says:

I think Floyd will have some rust this fight.

Lets not forget he lost 5 clear rounds to cotto.


Like I mentioned 5 times here with no one catching is that

Floyd was winded mid fight pretty bad against cotto

It took a few rounds for him to get his second wind.

Floyd is 36 and fights once a year.

That's bound to catch up to him

Radam G says:

Everybody, who's not a B-Sug groupie, can read exactly what I posted. The percentage of trainers never "had an extended boxing career." And a lot of 'em like the late, great GBTOAT Angie Dundee never BOXED -- just TRAINED.

Double-stepping con jobs will not work here with the literate, educated non-prejudiced, don't-have-a-bone-to'grind readers/posters and scribes. Only posers, fakers, busters and the likes cannot comprehend what I clearly posted about boxers-turned trainers. And also everybody that have or had an extended career don't suffer from lingering damages. It is like smoking, drinking or eating bad food. The large percentage will not suffer long-term damage if they get off that jive. Ninety percent of boxers, like 94-year-old Jake LaMotta, nature-healing process repairs the damages of youth and early middle-age of getting boxing buzzed up inside the noggin.

Since I need to "get off the coconut juice," I guess you are a brain physician now, and cyberspace diagnose damaging of long-term boxing. WTF! What is inside the cranium, and even the body, regenerates itself. Punch-drunk, brain-damaged boxers walking around is the exception, and not the RULE! Look at the opponents that Freddie Roach fought, and the opponents that GOAT Ali fought, and the opponents that all damaged fighters fought. Not even one percent of them suffer an iota of damage from boxing.
I
You got the wrong sport. Sensationalize American football. Boxing is far older than it is, but has far less damage playas (sic) when those playas hang up da gloves. Don't Hollywood stereotype us. San Diego, Calif, use to be a gateway of boxing. And since a lot these literally over a-thousand 60-something-to-95 years former-boxing cats served in the military, they have medical benefits and are tested by the best doctors on the globe and have none of that brain-damage, make-believe syet. We live in real-time life, not cyberspace's create-some-syet-and-it stick. And attack everybody, who knows better, and won't humbug jump into the line to the pied-piper's flute playing, as being "absurd" and "personal" and needing to "put down the coconut juice." And I have never been charged for crime or violation any where on the globe. Holla!

Radam G says:

"50-percent of boxers-trainers..." People know how to read. Holla"

amayseng says:

Radam I'm not disagreeing but I think it is just natural that the media

exposes damaged athletes more than athletes who are not damaged.

All we see an hear about is trauma and negativity.


Not how many boxers are without life long effects.

It's like we are conditioned to only see the negative.

Radam G says:

Not too much rust, amayseng. Sparring with 8oz gloves in fight-like conditions in the gym have squashed that. Money May will be in whup-a$$ business come Saturday night in Sin City, USA. The Cali humbug, Holy Ghost is no Cotto, and Money May is not distracted by having to go to jail a few days after da rumble with the gun-carrying humbug, who say that he will make Money May humble. Onto a serious arse thrashing the Cali Ghost and his Ghost Dad have on a stumble.

They will never succeed as the Crazy Papa and his son, Pretty Danny did on Super Zab. Money May is going to probably conduct jive on TCC like a doctor in experimental lab. Dissect, babee, DISSECT! Holla!

Radar how do u think the fight will play out?

From each side.

Radam G says:

I agree with you 100 percent, amayseng. The media are adverse muthasuckas and always go for the negatives and blow 'em up and hide 'em from actuality and reality. It is about about poser Rocky on the BIG Screen, and not the late, great Rocky on done-dat-syet-for-real scene. It is no 50 percent of boxers -- even long-career ones -- with wrinkled-fat damage up in the cranium.

Maybe some cyberspace pseudoexperts and pseudodoctors have problem with wrinkled-fat damage from sitting on those hinnies looking to be adverse and harming to the truth of how the game roll and stroll and will never fold or anything or let cyberspace jive about it take a tight hold. The game is already seedy, so it makes no sense to manufacture stuff. Holla!

Radam G says:

Money May is going to bust and cut him up. And trick-of-the-trade elbow him, knee bump him and glove lace him. While adroitedly whuppin' and ghostbustering dat humbug arse mad skillfully. I will not be surprised to see the whacked-out Ghost Dad stop it between the 10th and 11th round.

You live by the sword, you die by the sword. Robert Guerrero will get from Money May what he gave Andre Roids -- I mean Andre Berto. Holla!

amayseng says:

So u think the ghost will come in just like Berto?

If he does he gets stopped.

I just think he will play it smarter.

Time will tell.

50% of all ex-boxers-turned-tainers suffer from some type of nerve neuropathy or degenerative nerve disease. Floyd senior can still run circles around Freddy Roach.

Floyd sr brings the the type of assertive leadership Jr needs to overcome the valid threat presented by Robert Guerrero.

Instead of being told "Just box 'em" Jr will finally receive specific instructions between
Rounds... He'll need every minute of it. Rob G is no push over.


you are a hilarious guy RG,

but since you can't remember.

heres my comment again.

thanks for commenting.

ali says:

Radam I'm not disagreeing but I think it is just natural that the media

exposes damaged athletes more than athletes who are not damaged.

All we see an hear about is trauma and negativity.


Not how many boxers are without life long effects.

It's like we are conditioned to only see the negative.


Good point
