Guerrero has started a #BeatFloyd social media movement, and he has been talking a lot of trash leading up to the bout.
Guerrero, who is from Gilroy, Calif., has a long-standing relationship with our partner site, Yardbarker.com. He made the video seen above for Yardbarker. In the video, Guerrero predicts he will pull a Buster Douglas-like upset on Mayweather.
“I honestly feel this is a modern-day David vs. Goliath,” Guerrero says in the video. “I’m in that position like Buster Douglas. I’m going to show up to the fight and I’m going to take him out just like Buster Douglas did Mike Tyson.”
Douglas’ win over Tyson in 1990 is widely considered one of the biggest upsets ever in the sport. Tyson was 37-0 at the time and thought to be an unstoppable, killing machine in the ring. But he came in overconfident and didn’t pay much attention to Douglas, who shockingly knocked him out in the 10th round. A lot of people didn’t think anything of the fight, which took place in Tokyo, and they were stunned to see the result.
Guerrero has been saying in the buildup to the fight that he thinks Mayweather is ripe for a fall.Google+
