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.
