After the show that Floyd Mayweather put on versus Robert Guerrero on Saturday, one would think that Guerrero would be the one to with injury issues. Although Mayweather handed Guerrero a decisive second loss, it is “Money May” who has questions regarding his right hand. This drubbing wasn’t close all night, but the countless hits to the head of Guerrero made the right hand of Mayweather swollen and discolored after the bout.
If all goes to plan, this will be the second to last time that Mayweather has entered the ring, but athletes with an ego the size of Floyd’s usually wind up “retiring” multiple times. When the spotlight shines and Mayweather is no longer in the industry, I am sure he will master some sort of comeback. The early reports indicate that it was merely soreness around his hand and the Mayweather camp is hopeful that the hindrance does not keep him out of the September 19th match at the MGM Grand.
Boxing fans across the country have begged and pleaded for a Manny Pacquiáo and Mayweather fight, however that seems like an absolute pipe dream at this point in time. A silly hand injury seems trivial, but if troublesome it could easily push his last ride further back than September. If he is able to give it a go, Mayweather will finish his 30 month six fight deal with Showtime CBS on September 19th.
In addition, Guerrero also had a few post fight problems and one of them included a laceration above his right eye that required three stitches to close the wound.
