Guerrero Looks To Challenge Mayweather For Welterweight Supremacy

Posted by Jack "The Hammer" Howard on 4/30/2013 7:39:34 PM

One of the prime online sports betting boxing bouts scheduled for 2013, and a potential Fight of the Year candidate will feature WBC Welterweight champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. defending his title and fighting for the vacant RING Welterweight title in a bout with Roberto “The Ghost” Guerrero. Guerrero has strung together 15-straight wins with only a pair of no contests along the way since he last lost a fight all the way back in 2006, and now the 36-year old will try and put his self in the record books by ending Mayweather’s undefeated run at 43-straight wins.

WBC Sportsbook Line: Mayweather Jr. – 800

The majority of sportsbook sites have Guerrero listed as a +550 underdog to win this bout, and that could be enticing enough for some players to take the risk in order to reap the huge rewards of a potential win. The last time we saw Mayweather in the ring he was knocked around quite a bit by Miguel Cotto, and the consensus among experts is that he is not the same fighter he was two years ago at this point.

Mayweather managed to salvage the win over Cotto with his consistent and relentless offensive attack, but he wasn’t nearly as invincible as he had looked in years past. The champion was bumped around and even bloodied a little, and he conceded a few rounds in the eventual unanimous decision win. That said, Mayweather is still as dedicated of an athlete as there is in sports, and his relentless training means that he will be in the best possible shape once again for this bout. Mayweather may take a few bumps, but he has shown the ability to handle those bumps and keep on punching.

WBC Betting Preview: Robert Guerrero

If there is one fighter that can handle the pressure of going up against Mayweather Jr. it is Guerrero, who has already been through so much in his career both in and out of the ring. Guerrero’s heavy hands are what make him so dangerous, as the southpaw has scored 18 of his 31-career wins via knockout and knows how to use his leverage to catch an opponent. However, Guerrero’s last five wins have come via unanimous decision, and he needs to find a way to be the aggressor in order to try and waiver Mayweather’s focus.

WBC Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The lucrative price tag that comes with taking Guerrero will be too much for some sports betting fans to resist, but the bottom line is despite the constant talk about how he could be vulnerable, Mayweather has shown up time and again to take care of business. The champion has proven his dominance in the sport with 43-straight wins, and he understands what he has to do to beat Guerrero with the physical tools and skill set to get it done.
