Guerrero moves camp to Vegas
By Dan Rafael
Robert Guerrero was calling out pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. for a year before he finally got the opportunity, and now "The Ghost" is less than two months away from challenging Mayweather for his welterweight world title.
Robert Guerrero will finish out training camp for his May 4 fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in close proximity to the fight's venue in Las Vegas.
The two fighters will meet May 4 (Showtime PPV) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and now Guerrero will be in close proximity to where he will fight the biggest match of his career.
Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs), who has already been training for several weeks in his hometown of Gilroy, Calif., has relocated to Las Vegas to finish his training camp in preparation to face Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), who lives and trains there.
"Las Vegas is my home now and these next six weeks of training will be very grueling, but I'm well prepared to make the sufficient sacrifices that will be needed to dethrone Mayweather," Guerrero said. "The first day of camp [Monday] in Las Vegas is in the books and my body is filling out perfectly.
"I'm feeling extremely strong right now. I will have all my bases covered for this fight and I'm leaving no stone unturned. Believe me, Floyd is in trouble and there is nothing he can do to escape the punishment I'm going to give him. God has put me in this position for a reason and May 4th can't come soon enough."
