Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero weighed in before a packed crowd just under 5,000, today at the MGM in Las Vegas.  Looming larger and leaner, Mayweather tipped the beam at 146 while Guerrero, looking more like a jr. welterweight, weighed in at the limit at 147. Making it difficult to determine a fan favorite, the boos for Mayweather registered louder than the cheers for Guerrero. With the fighters’ pops stirring the pot, Mayweather and Guerrero maintained a lengthy staredown, until Golden Boy matchmaker Eric Gomez gently pulled Guerrero back.

“I’m here to do what I do best,” Mayweather told the media. “I always control the tempo and I’ll execute my game plan.”

Guerrero was much more animated: “It’s time to get down, time to rock ‘n’ roll!” he shouted. “It’s on! We got to beat him down and take full advantage of him.”
