    NEW YORK (March 26, 2013) - It's been a couple of hectic but satisfying and productive days for Robert Guerrero, who along with his wife, Casey, appeared on "The 700 Club" with Pat Robertson and Terry Meeuwsen on Monday in Virginia Beach, Va., met Robin Roberts on the set of "Good Morning America" in New York City on Tuesday and then later in the morning were joined by Executive Vice President and General Manager of SHOWTIME Sports®, Stephen Espinoza for an "invite-only" media brunch at Vanderbilt Suites in The MetLife Building in Midtown Manhattan.
    During Tuesday's brunch, which was emceed by Golden Boy Promotions Chief Operating Officer, David Itskowitch, Guerrero (above in picture by Tom Casino of SHOWTIME), who turns 30 on Wednesday, was presented with a birthday cake.
    Guerrero, a Six-Time and Four-Division World Champion, will challenge undefeated Eight-Time and Five-Division World Champion Floyd Mayweather for the WBC Welterweight World Championship on Saturday, May 4, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The event, which will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV®, starts at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
    Below is what Guerrero, Espinoza and Itskowitch said Tuesday.
    ROBERT "THE GHOST" GUERRERO
    "I want to thank everyone involved, Golden Boy and SHOWTME especially. I'm excited for this fight. Man, I just can't wait to get out there and fight Floyd Mayweather. I plan to shock the world.
    "It's funny because I've been talking to the media and telling them that I'm going to beat Floyd. Now, it's time to get out there and do it. I'm ready. A lot of people think I'm crazy, but I think you're crazy for thinking that I'm crazy. Just look at my wife. She asked the Lord to heal her and He did.
    "When you believe, amazing things happen. I'm telling you all now that I am going to beat him. I believe God does things for a reason. I believe he put me here to humble Floyd Mayweather, and it is going to happen.''
    STEPHEN ESPINOZA
    "We wanted to put this breakfast together partially to promote the fight, but anybody who knows anything about boxing knows that this is going to be a tough, tough fight. Anybody who says Mayweather is too fast, too strong and too good for Robert, well, they were saying that before Robert's fight with (Andre) Berto too.
    "We wanted to make sure the East Coast knew about Robert. Knew how classy he is and how wonderful he is as an individual. It will be an incredible event on May 4. Dave (Itskowitch) said this will be the toughest fight of Robert's career. I think at the end of it, this will also be the toughest fight of Mayweather's career.''
    DAVID ITSKOWITCH
    "Robert Guerrero is an amazing fighter in the ring, but he is probably a more amazing person out of the ring. I know his story has been told a lot, but I don't think it has been told enough.
    "The first fight we worked with him was in 2007. We got a call the day before the fight's final press conference with the horrifying news about Casey. I couldn't believe when he walked into the room that he was going to fight a few days later. The fight happened. He blitzed Martin Honorio in less than a minute. I guess he wanted to get back home to Casey.
    "When Casey's condition got worse, he had a decision to make. He had to give up his title to take care of her. A lot of people questioned his decision, but it was the right thing to do. He's now sitting in front of us facing the biggest fight of his career.''

    The Lord said you shall put no idol before me.


    You shall be humble in your accomplishments.

    Floyd thanks God and acts a Christian but his actions speak otherwise.

    Guerrero is sounding like Mayweather now Im pretty sure god doesn't want Guerrero beat up anyone just to humble them. Come on guys god is not picking sides just pray that you and your opponent is ok when the fight is over.

    i think the ghosts point in all of this is that his faith has lead him to this opportunity,

    the opportunity to educate the WORLD in healing and helping cancer patients,

    his faith that helped him get through such a devestating time.

    not sure if any of you have been with a family member day in and day out dealing with chemo and radiation but truly you are watching
    them slowly dying and healing from this horrible treatments....
    those treatments kill both bad and good cells, its a horrible thing to have to endure...

    the ghost endured and more importantly his wife has been healed, he feels truly blessed and it has been his faith as his staple to endure all this..

    add in a couple children and you have to understand what a horrible time the Guerrerros have gone through.....


    all he has endured and now he has the chance to fight and beat the best fighter in the last ten years (arguably radam)

    its faith that carries the ghost...

    hes not saying God has chosen him to beat another human being half to death...

    i feel he is saying the Lord has given him a path, and that path has these opportunities, and floyd mayweather has not been representing God the correct way and the ghost has the ability to humble him or change him or beat him...

    I think it will be close for a bit .Roberts best chance is to rough Floyd up in the first few rounds and go toe to toe. If Floyd makes his adjustments and gets comfortable then he will pot shot and cruise . Floyd might go toe to toe since his legs don't move as much as they used to. Guerrero has to basically go for it and not stay on the back foot for too long . He can do it but so can Floyd . Guerrero must hit on break ,hit with free hand, throw off all of Floyd's rhythm before he settles in

    I just reviewed the Floyd hatton fight
    and also the Roberto and berto fight.

    If Robert fights Floyd like he did berto and
    similarly how hatton charged in at Floyd the Robert will be
    knocked out by round 6.

    Hatton had better quickness and great footwork to keep up with Floyd
    but got pit shotted in the way in all night.

    The ghosts best chance is to fight at distance,

    Not box at distance but fight at distance in the pocket moving left

    and throwing left hooks to the body with straight rights and right hooks to the body

    then getting out of the pocket.

    Control the pace , throw 2-4 punches sharply not wasting and out of the pocket


    Then by mid fight start throwing that left hybrid hook coming low toward the chin
