The Fans Have Voted: Mayweather-Guerrero

Guerrero loses lead in final 2 days! Landslide victory for Floyd!

It's getting closer and closer, and the excitement is building... We're just days away from the highly-anticipated return of the pound-for-pound king Floyd 'Money' Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO's)! On Saturday May 4th he takes on Robert 'The Ghost' Guerrero (31-1, 18 KO's) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. 

I don't need to explain to you how big this fight is. The fact that we received more votes for this fight than any other shows just how excited the fans are for Floyd's return and also how intrigued they are to see if Guerrero really can give the WBC champ the toughest fight of his career so far. 

At first it looked as though we were going to see a big upset in the polls when the voting started this week. Robert Guerrero was actually pulling ahead after the first day or so but couldn't hold onto the lead as Floyd received more and more votes and moved further and further ahead in the final two days.

Here are the results:

Floyd Mayweather: 71%

Points: 100%     KO: 0%

Robert Guerrero: 29%

Points: 83%       KO: 17%

So as you can see, the results show that once again Floyd Mayweather will enter the ring as the huge favorite. 71% of the fans believe he will simply be too smart for 'The Ghost' and will out-point him over 12 rounds. However, the fact that Guerrero was ahead after the first day shows that he is a live underdog and a lot of people are giving him at least a chance in this fight. If you look at the results, you can see that more people picked him to stop Floyd than they did for Floyd to stop him. Floyd Mayweather is now 36-years old and is clearly slowing down so a Guerrero stoppage victory is not impossible it is just very, very unlikely as to hurt Floyd you have to catch him, and even at the age of 36 it's still extremely tough to land clean on the WBC champ.

I'm going with the majority here - I expect Floyd to still have it in him to win a clear unanimous decision victory after 12 hard-fought rounds because I do believe Guerrero will push him to the limit. I, like most others, expect Guerrero to come out with the same tactics he did against Berto and possibly give Mayweather his toughest fight in years. We'll just have to wait and see. 'May Day' is getting closer and closer and I personally cannot wait!
