Money May vs. Guerrero!

What are your unofficial predcitions?

I think Guerrero will try to make it as rough and ugly as possible, but he will eventually fall behind - as everyone - and allow Floyd to capitalize on his mistakes. I don't think The Ghost will break down though. He seems to be very strong-willed so I expect him to fight for the whole 3 minutes of every round. Floyd might get hit early on before he adjusts as he did in the Judah fight. I don't see a KO though. Floyd ain't gonna leave his throne just yet.

I expect Floyd to be defensively minded and picking his shots while frustrating Guerrero with defense on the ropes as I think Robert will try to bully him there.

All in all...I feel the same way as I always do when Floyd announces his opponent - unsure. Hell, I was worried that JMM will get him (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Not gonna happen though...

i had to be the one to deliver the bad news...but...

showtime is the home of the upset. mayweather/guerrero has upset written all over it. the 6 fight deal has a strong possibility to go right down the toilet....and i don't believe hbo will be totally out the picture. i do believe that this will change the current landscape of boxing...which imo, is a good thing. no more ppv's....no more trying to force feed us over paid/under challenged fighters. new stars will emerge...and hopefully hbo will realize that trying to force feed us manufactured stars is not the way. showtime will continue to grow.

Professor usually I agree with most of the things that you say but this one I can not go with you on. Guerrero at best is the poor man's Castillo. He is not going to rough house Floyd like he did Berto and unlike Berto, he will be dealing with the original Shoulder Roll. Not a BS imitation. Guerrero gets hit way too often and he does not have a power punch. This should be an interesting fight but my money is on Money! And what a hell of a deal that he inked with showtime. Someone at HBO is about to get fired!

original shoulder roll? haha cmon man - mayweather isnt the first to shoulder roll!

i'm giving guerrero more of a chance than you. i think his best assets are his chin and heart for this fight. i believe his straight could be dangerous too.i agree with ya though that guerrero won't be able to replicate the berto fight. we're both on the same page as far as who we think comes out the winner too lol just sayin, i think Guerrero isn't to be scoffed at

I think Mayweather-Gurrero is gonna be like Mayweather-Hatton. It will be a Nevada ref who won't like Guerrero fight inside often enough to do his thing. The ref won't show the favorable bias to Mayweather like Cortez did in the Hatton fight, (although even I was annoyed with Hatton holding.) For Guerrero to win against Floyd, it's almost gotta be in California with a California ref who will let Robert do whatever he wants. No such luck in Nevada. However, It will be Floyd's toughest fight since Castillo I and I'll say 116-112 for Floyd on all cards.

Floyd Mayweather , layoff of not, is no Berto. Floyd's too smart and skilled, especially with Vegas officials seeing things his way in terms of any close rounds or what Floyd can do to an opponent.

see...everyone is making the floyd/berto comparisons....in my mind, they need to look at the guerrero/cotto comparisons to understand this better. guerrero is a sharper puncher than cotto at this point. he also is a committed body puncher and he takes a waaaay better shot than cotto. he's slightly bigger maybe stronger and faster. i don't care what the cards say....i had cotto winning five of the twelve against floyd. i get the feeling guerrero will at the very least equal that. i won't be shocked if he happens to drop floyd.
