Guerro vs. Mayweather Boxing Match: 5 Knock-Out Spicy Latin Snacks

In case you didn’t know (and I definitely didn’t), tonight is a pretty big boxing match. Mexican boxer Robert Guerrero is taking on Floyd Mayweather, Jr., in what is sure to be an epic showdown in Las Vegas.

Although Guerrero was named “Fighter of the Year” in 2012, “Money” Mayweather’s is still considered the best pound for pound fighter. He’s a five-division world champion who has never been defeated. I repeat: he is currently undefeated, aka he’s really good at kicking ass.

Well, we at Latina aren’t intimidated at all. In fact, we’re (kinda) sure that “The Ghost” Guerrero is the one to send Mayweather’s winning streak to the grave. In fact, we’re celebrating watching the clash with some of our favorite spicy Latin snacks (plus a bonus spicy cocktail!). After all, it’s not a Mayweather vs Guerrero party without some almost-too-hot-to-handle food that can (gastronomically speaking) knock you out.

So sit back, eat some comida caliente and enjoy the fight. Go Guerrero!
