Floyd was back in action on May 4, and he asserted why he’s considered one of the best welterweight boxers ever. He defeated Robert Guerrero in a unanimous decision after 12 rounds of fighting, and took home a sweet purse of $32 million.

A title fight in boxing is huge. A title fight featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr., the highest paid boxer in the sport, is even bigger. But the first title fight since Floyd was released from jail? Now that’s enormous. The 36-year-old boxer flashed back on the scene on May 4, defeating Robert Guerrero in 12 rounds to claim the title belt.

The MGM Grand Hotel was more alive than ever as the two welterweight boxers went head to head. There was definitely no love lost between the two, as they were throwing punches viciously.

In the end though, the frenzied match came down to who wanted it more — and that was Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vs. Robert Guerrero: A Fight For The Ages

This welterweight title fight may have been the most hyped ever. Floyd first of all, was going into the ring trying to shake off his sordid past. He hadn’t fought in over a year after serving jail time for assaulting the mother of his children.

He was still his confrontational self before the fight though, calling out Robert and saying he was hypocrite for calling himself a devout Christian and then being arrested for gun charges. Both boxers seemed to get a kick out of mocking each other’s jail sentences.

It was also an emotional fight for Robert, whose wife just overcame cancer. He was likely enraged even more when Floyd went on the record saying that the cancer story was just a ploy for sympathy.

“I’m glad she was able to beat leukemia, which is a great thing,” he told Yahoo!. “But they keep selling the same story. It’s time to talk about something different.”

Well, now we’ll just be talking about Floyd’s win over Robert. What did you think of the fight, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

After reading your article, ONE thing is VERY clear…You didn’t even watch the fight! You read some of the top stories and cut and pasted together some nonsense. SHAME!
