Robert Guerrero says Floyd Mayweather Jr. is slipping, and he intends to exploit the unbeaten pound-for-pound champion's flaws on May 4.
Guerrero has been asking for a fight with Mayweather since Guerrero was a skinny 135-pounder. Now that Mayweather agreed to the bout this week for his Showtime debut, Guerrero plans to cash in on the chance.
Although he respects Mayweather's defense and skill, Guerrero thinks Mayweather has slowed down in recent years. He also expects Mayweather to be fighting ring rust after a year away and a two-month stint in jail.
A talkative former featherweight champion from Gilroy, Calif., Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs) says he's tired of top fighters avoiding him. He plans to use a win over Mayweather to propel him to the top of the sport.
