March 19, 2013 – After weeks of intense training in his hometown of Gilroy, Calif., Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) has arrived in Las Vegas to continue training camp as he prepares to dethrone Eight-Time, Four-Division and current WBC Welterweight World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO’s). The championship showdown will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., live on SHOWTIME PPV® Saturday, May 4, 2013.
“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,” said Guerrero. “The first day of camp 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.”
