Floyd Pounds on Guerrero’s Pelo, Will September 14 Be Canelo?
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Correspondent
Las Vegas, NV (May 5th, 2013)– The May 4, 2013 MGM Grand pay-per-view extravaganza is over and done, with Mayweather pounding on Guerrero’s head and hair in the hot heat of May weather in Las Vegas. Even Liberace would be astounded with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s 32 million dollars purse. Look him over. Floyd Mayweather Jr. does not go unnoticed.
Robert Ghost Guerrero will take home three million dollars. Money Floyd will take home the World Boxing Council and Ring Magazine World Welterweight title belts.
The three judges at ringside scored the bout 117-111 for Floyd. Real Combat Media scored it 119-110 for Floyd, with 10 rounds Floyd, one for Guerrero and one round even. If the judges gave southpaw Guerrero the even round and the questionable last round, this could account for the three somewhat generous rounds Guerrero received on the three scorecards. At nine rounds to three for Floyd, all critics who predicted Floyd’s doom ate as many of their reviews as Guerrero ate Floyd’s punches. If comedian Richard Pryor were alive, the bout would be good comedy.
Guerrero ate a lot of Floyd’s right hand head shots all night. after a cautious first round which appeared even, Floyd drew distance range,, and used his two inch reach advantage to size advantage, landing crisp jabs and power shots on Guerrero all night. Guerrero’s chin proved solid and durable. Guerrero tried to chase Floyd down, and Floyd adapted his style to Guerrero’s style of fighting. Sometimes Floyd would score precise power shots from range distance while making Guerrero miss horribly. At other times Floyd would square up with Guerrero and go toe-to-toe and simply outpunch and outwork him on the inside, making Guerrero’s game his game.
Guerrero chased after Floyd, who pounded on Guerrero’s head all night, landing crisp clean straight shots to the head and body with bullet accuracy. In the later rounds, Floyd tortured and toyed with Guerrero by dropping his hands yet landing and will, torturing the soul of Guerrero and leaving a mean message for anybody else who might have ideas of calling Floyd out-like K9 Bundridge or Danny Garcia. Don’t.
Referee Robert Byrd let the fighters fight out of clinches wherever possible, but seemed a bit tentative to step in the middle and take away the focus on the show.
The fight at times also featured between the blows some elbows, holding behind the head, hitting and holding, rabbit punches, kidney punches to the back, and holding and hitting.
This bout was not a walk in the park for either man, and it showed.
A blow by blow description of each round is not necessary. Floyd said of Robert Guerrero after the bout, “He is a true warrior.” Enough said. Bring on Canelo Alvarez. Sign the bout contracts. The public demands Canelo versus Floyd. Now.
