LAS VEGAS — Floyd Mayweather Jr. weighed in at 146 pounds for his Saturday night welterweight title defense against Robert Guerrero, who weighed the limit, 147 pounds.
Mayweather (43-0, 26 knockouts) said after weighing in at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where he’ll fight Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs) in a Showtime pay-per-view bout, that he’s confident of victory.
“We had a tremendous training camp, my team did a great job getting me ready, and now it’s my time to go into the squared circle and shine,” Mayweather said.
“I’ve had a great career for 17 years and I want the wins to continue.”
Guerrero, in his biggest fight yet, was a bit overactive on stage, raising his arms to the crowd and rejoicing after going nose to nose with the veteran champion.
