"Fight night, I'll be ready to go. I'm hungry. I'm dedicated to what I do. Floyd's a great fighter, but it's my time now. I'm younger, faster, stronger, very elusive in the ring. We'll finish him, or if we don't, you know, he's going to take a beating throughout the whole fight; break him down, put the pressure and just really put it on him...he's going to run like a chicken with no head," stated multi-division world champion Robert Guerrero on the latest episode of All Access: Mayweather vs. Guerrero, Showtime's all-access reality series following WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather and mandatory challenger Robert Guerrero as they prepare for their May 4 Cinco de Mayo showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Episode 2 was not short on quotes from both fighters, so check out what else Guerrero had to say!
On his gun charges...
Actions have a lot of power. When people see what you do and how you act, it influences them. A situation like this, you know, it makes you take two steps back and look at everything.
I gotta put this behind me and come out here and focus on what I have to do fight night.
You know, flying into Vegas, all that's going through my mind is, hey, it's time to get back to work. Everything I said, it's time to back it up. It's time to go out there and get the job done.
On training in Las Vegas...
Everybody talks about it in Vegas, Mt. Charleston, that it's the best place to run. With the elevation here and the dry weather, we're able to just come here and train.
It's so peaceful being out there, you know, out of the city in the country side, just being isolated and secluded away out there, you know, it starts to remind you of being back home.
I know a lot of people don't like to run mountains, run hills, and grind out, but, you know, I look forward to those type of things; just trucking through those mountains, pushing yourself to the limits. It's one of the greatest feelings in the world.
The elevation's a killer here. Next week, it'll be 11,000, and then we'll come back down to Vegas at 3,000 and climb over Floyd Mayweather.
On his fight with Andre Berto...
You know, getting in there with Berto, everybody looked at me like I was crazy, coming up to 147 pounds, jumping two weight classes. It was one of those fights where it's like, hey, you know. all of the odds are against you. Those are the kinds of things that I do; look for the best.
Fight night, I'll be ready to go. I'm hungry. I'm dedicated to what I do. Floyd's a great fighter, but it's my time now. I'm younger, faster, stronger, very elusive in the ring. We'll finish him, or if we don't, you know, he's going to take a beating throughout the whole fight; break him down, put the pressure and just really put it on him.
We ain't here to fun. We ain't here to enjoy ourselves. We're here to do a job.
I know Floyd's going to bring a big ring, and he's going to run like a chicken with no head, so I gotta spar in a big ring.
On moving up in weight...
Every time I moved up in weight, people thought, "You know, he's not going to be the same. He's moving up. He came from 122 pounds," and every time I've gone up in weight, I proved them wrong.
Every time I fight somebody, it's been the worst beating of their life. That's just the way I roll.
