Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO) once again showed why he is both boxing's best fighter and biggest attraction as he defeated Robert Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO) by wide unanimous decision on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
At the outset, it appeared that Guerrero would make the fight ugly as many expected. He met some limited success in the opening rounds by taking on the role of counterpuncher and bullying Mayweather while on the inside.
But unfortunately for "The Ghost," most of his success came in the first two rounds before Mayweather began taking over the fight with his trademark speed, defense and boxing intelligence. By the middle rounds, it was clear that this was going to be another example of a fighter talking a big game only to see it come unglued when he got in there with the best fighter on the planet.
Mayweather won the fight going away, by unanimous scores of 117-111, and showed absolutely no ring rust or signs of age while reaffirming his place as the sport's top fighter.
