How you gon' hate on Andre Ward?
Earlier this month, Andre Ward noted that he would be rooting for Roberto Guerrero in his May 4 fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. This made sense. Ward and Guerrero are fellow East Bay natives. They've known each other since their days on the amateur circuit.

"I'm a support my guy because I came up with him," he told FightHype.com. "I'm rooting for Robert, man."

Ward, the 26-0 super middleweight champion, explained that he has love for Mayweather too. "I've been a Floyd Mayweather fan for many, many years," he said. "Floyd's style in the ring has helped shape my style, and just his approach to the game in general."

Mayweather, however, doesn't reciprocate the respect. He expressed as much in an interview with the same website, calling out the face of Bay Area boxing two months before fighting one of the region's rising stars.

"Who knows him?" said Mayweather, who is 43-0. "If you're not in Oakland, you don't even know who he is. He's getting older and time is ticking, so I mean, when is he going to ever leave Oakland and put assess in seats somewhere else?"

He couched his hate with hollow phrases like "Nothing against him" and "Not knocking Andre Ward" and "I don't have anything negative or bad to say about Andre Ward." And then he went on to say negative and bad things about the soft-spoken and mild-mannered Andre Ward.

For instance:

"He calls himself S.O.G. If I'm not mistaken, that stands for Son of God. Last time I checked, we're all God's children. When one fighter is facing another fighter, God don't choose sides. What's going to happen in life is going to happen. Everything is already planned out."

And:

"He can't sell tickets nowhere. He can't sell tickets in Las Vegas."

And:

"This is the only guy I know that's a gold medalist, but don't nobody know he's a gold medalist," Mayweather said of Ward. "He's a gold medalist, but he's making money like he don't even got a medal."

And:

"You need to come to my camp so you can learn the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide. I got the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide."

It's nothing new from Mayweather. He's all about mind games. He's all about saying crazy things. He's all about disparaging his peers. He likely already had a low favorability rating in the Bay Area, which as a sizable Filipino population.

In a 10-minute rant he posted online in 2010, he accused his rival Manny Pacquiao, who is Filipino, of taking performance enhancing drugs. And the he declared, "I'll make that motherfucker make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice."

That's all great but the biggest fight coming up is between Mayweather and Canelo http://mayweatheralvarez.org and I will definitely be watching closely. I've always wondered who would win between the two.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. http://mayweathervsguerrerolivestreamppv.us/ has been internal bleeding on the nostril, a thing that did actually trouble his papa a great deal more when compared with the idea performed him or her.Any forearm of which slipped inside the headgear throughout a sparring session Comes to an end night time has been to blame as well as Mayweather Sr

Mayweather may be the fastest, "the smartest," but there is one thing that Shane Mosley proved to the boxing world: Mayweather can't take a punch. After Mosley caught Mayweather in the jaw, money wobbled back and began to run away the rest of the fight. Classic boring Money May. So if Money wants to prove he's the best, he's got to prove that he can take a punch, but as we all saw, he can't. He'd rather run than fight.

So hopefully Guerrero really brings it. And puts Money on his ass. Even if Guerrero doesn't win it would be nice to show the boxing world again why Money May is the best--at running.

It should be interesting to see how Mayweather does in his first fight with Showtime. That's why Mayweather vs Guerrero will be such a big fight. There is already alot of promotion for this fight, just look at all the videos at http://mayweather-guerrero.org to see, their clearing pushing this fight hard.
