Ruben Guerrero: Mayweather Getting Beat Up in Sparring

Ruben Guerrero, the outspoken father/trainer of Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs), tells BoxingScene.com that he heard rumblings that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26Kos) is getting worked over by his sparring partners. Guerrero challenges Mayweather on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Showtime Pay-Per-View will televise.

Both Mayweather and Guerrero are holding their training camps in Las Vegas. Ruben believes his information is valid, because on Wednesday at a media workout at the Mayweather Boxing Club - it was pretty clear that Mayweather was sporting a bruise under his right eye.

"I seen that black eye on him. If he thinks he's getting beat up in sparring wait until May 4. He's gonna get a real beatdown [that day]. He better be ready that's all I'm saying because Robert wants this. He's ready and he's a warrior with Mexican blood. We fight till the death. Robert wants to put a beating on this guy and its gonna take every Mayweather in that ring to beat my son. And if the father wants a old school beating I have one for him too. Viva Mexico! Viva California! Viva Texas! We want this! Let's go," Ruben said.

Ruben says he is not intimidated by going against the training duo of Floyd Mayweather Sr. and his brother Roger Mayweather.

"If you got two trainers you got nothing. Floyd Sr. is a puppet, all he does is talk. Roger is the real trainer who does mitts and everything. The other guy is a cheerleader man. What type of head trainer doesn't do mitts with his fighter? Lil Floyd Jr. just feels bad cause he treated his father like sh*t on TV. If I were Roger I wouldn't allow these fools to do that. He trained Floyd Jr. his whole career and the other guy is here for the paycheck," Ruben said.

Yeah...not so much. Lack of credibility with "the source."

Now if Guerrero had said this weeks or days before media day and the obvious bruise (and especially if his son wasn't fighting the fighter in question)...his "I heard..." would be a slight more credible. But to come out after you see a bruise on a fighter....that's just spin.

Not the first time Floyd's sported a bruise during training.

Wonder why Reuben Guerreo is not more focused on his own fighter...and those 12 pounds he still needs to lose. Smh.

It could mean a whole range of things if it was true. But that's a big if. Maybe it would explain how come they'd didn't film any sparring this time around? But if it was true, it really needs to be put into context, you know what Floyds like, does crazy rounds for crazy amount of time with fresh opposition when he himself is tired as. I mean remember when Floyd fractured a rib before the Marquez fight. Nothing new.

12lb in 30 days is nothing, any idea what Floyds was at?

floyd has 3 sparring partners....

errol spence, sechew powell and jesus gonzalez. word is that gonzalez is giving him the best work.

there's a fine line between training someone to a peak...and over doing it. with more than one cook in the kitchen...this may be an issue. from an interview i saw earlier today from roger...he says he's the one steering the ship. i know floyd wants the whole family involved...i hope it's a good thing. jeff is down in panama. we'll see what happens come fight night.

on guerrero's side...i've seen guerrero and his pops work. honestly..i've always got the feeling that guerrero trains himself. his pops definitely pushes him though.

I thought Floyd never allowed cameras I'm when in sparring?

Either way it sounds sketchy. But Floyd has some pretty good sparring partners so even if he is getting worked its probably a good thing, help him shake off the rust.

Well I remember a certain DLH getting worked by tiny little Valero and had serious black eyes before he got dusted off by MP and prior the fight everyone was saying that what happens in sparring was no indication of what would happen in the ring......I forget, what round was DLH stopped in??

I'm not making a comparison between DLH's defense and Floyd's but the black eye thing stands out to me, if that is true then if those are lesser fighters than RG that Floyd is facing in his training/sparring then he may be in for an even more tougher night than we originally thought if this is any indication.

Just saying!

They live streamed when he was training for Cotton for whatever reason. Must of felt confidence in what he was doing as opposed to now. Maybe he wants to keep Guerrero guessing whether he'll be on the inside or pot shorting from the outside etc

Why is Floyd sparring 168lbers? Or does he expect Guerrero to be overweight by a lot lol
