After weeks of intense training in his hometown of Gilroy, CA, the six-time, four-division World Champ Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero  arrived in Las Vegas Sunday. Monday, bright and early, the Las Vegas training camp began for this super lightweight. 

Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs) is hoping to be the first to dethrone the eight-time, four-division and current WBC Welterweight World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO’s). Their championship showdown will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Saturday, May 4, 2013, live on Showtime.

If you must be in attendance, the remaining tickets for “May Day: Mayweather vs. Guerrero” are now priced at $1,500, $1,250, $800 and $600, not including applicable service charges and fees. Hopefully, they won’t charge you to park your car. Ticket limit is 10 per person. That has to be a joke.

Guerrero’s comments after Monday’s workout: “The first day of camp in Las Vegas is in the books and my body is filling out perfectly. I’m feeling extremely strong right now. I will have all my bases covered for this fight and I’m leaving no stone unturned. Believe me, Floyd is in trouble and there is nothing he can do to escape the punishment I’m going to give him. God has put me in this position for a reason and May 4th can’t come soon enough.”

The above photos are in a way a prediction of what will happen in this fight between Daniel Ponce De Leon (l) and his opponent Abner Mares (r).

The so-called mega-event will also feature another mismatch. Daniel Ponce de Leon (44-4-0, 35 KOs) of Huntington Beach, CA, a left-handed featherweight with a 70″ reach, will be going up against right-handed bantamweight Abner Mares (25-0-1, 13 KOs) of Montebello, CA. Not only is Mares shorter, he’ll have a reach disadvantage of four inches in this 12-rounder for Ponce de Leon’s WBC World Featherweight title. It’s another mismatch with the big heavy puncher battering the smaller less experienced man.
