If the undercard on the Mayweather Jr Vs Guerrero fails to excite at the MGM Grand In Las Vegas on Saturday night maybe their respective fathers could lace up the glove and get it on?
At the final press conference on Wednesday it was not the children that misbehaved but the two fathers.
In fact Floyd Jr purposely seated his father Floyd Mayweather Snr in the media seats away from the dias to avoid any confrontation with Team Guerrero but even raking that precaution the pair very nearly came to blows.
Speaking about his behaviour at the final presser Mayweather Snr said: “He(Floyd Jr) knows how I am. He knows I’m the kind of guy I am that I won’t be listening to that B.S. and that I’m gonna attack.
“The head trainer is always supposed to be up there on the podium. I guess they didn’t want me up there. Why is his daddy up there and I’m down here?’’
Regarding whether or not the Ruben Guerrero tiff may spill over to Saturday, Floyd Snr said: “The thing about it, when his son gets his butt whupped, you know he’s not going to want to get his whupped too. I don’t think it’s going to spill over anywhere. I think the crap’s going to be over with once his son gets whupped.”
In response Ruben Guerrero said: “I’m ready. My son is ready. I’m blessed. He’s blessed. I am what I am. My son’s gonna beat him up.’’
Responding to the disagreement with Floyd Sr not being on the dias, Ruben said: “I’ll hurt him, man. If I hit him one time, I don’t want to be responsible. He opened his mouth first. He opened the can of worms. If he’s going to talk, I’ll do it for real. They should’ve let him hang up here like a real man.”
