“There’s a sucker born every minute.” – P.T. Barnum (real credit to David Hannum)
That phrase applies to boxing fans more than any other group. The latest fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Roberto Guerrero is one being sold as a great match up. Nothing could be further from the truth. The promoters, that includes Mayweather Promotions, are trying hard to build up Roberto Guerrero as a viable opponent that has a chance at beating Mayweather. That’s laughable because there are some people that actually believe it. This fight should be shown on Oprah’s Oxygen channel not on Pay-Per-View.
Let’s take a look at Robert Guerrero’s boxing record. His last nine fights before he fought Andre Berto follows:
Unknown: Selcuk Aydin, Vicente Escobedo, Roberto David Arrieta, Malcolm Klassen, Efren Hinojos, Daud Cino Yordan, and Edel Ruiz.
Known: Joel Casamayor, 39 years old who lost 3 of his last 5 fights. Michael Katsidis, lost 4 of his last fight fights.
So Floyd Mayweather is advertising a Hyundai car as a Ferrari in his latest fight. Guerrero is no Ferrari, he is not even a Camaro. He hasn’t fought anyone. His only notable win is against Andre Berto, and the knock on Berto was that he didn’t beat anyone worth mentioning. His loss to Guerrero proved that to be true.
Save your money, remove that seed planted in your head that Guerrero has a chance to win. Ads are amazing aren’t they? That is why advertisers buy them for millions because it’s a very effective brain-washing tool. They use the, “Big Lie,” method effectively. Repeat a lie over and over again and soon it becomes the truth.
I’ll tell you exactly how the fight will transpire here so you can save your money and keep it in your wallet.
Floyd Mayweather keeps his distance and circles with pot shots. Robert Guerrero gets Mayweather against the ropes, Mayweather covers up, leans back and shoulder rolls, the round ends. Repeat this for 12 rounds. There you go, that’s it. Boring. Now you’re out of your hard earned cash, sorry, no refunds.May 4, 2013
