On Saturday, WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. will once again not fight Manny Pacquiao, as he is instead taking on the interim WBC Welterweight Champion Robert Guerrero to determine the actual WBC and The Ring Welterweight Champion. And while that all sounds fine and dandy for Saturday, the sh*t talk hit the fan yesterday, as Ruben Guerrero, Robert’s father and trainer, called Mayweather a woman beater during a very awkward press conference.
“We’re going to beat up that woman beater, the one that beat up his wife, man,” Ruben Guerrero said, firing his arms into the air. “[He beat up] his wife in front of his kids. You guys like that [expletive]? You like this guy, this woman beater? He must have learned it from his Dad. Women beaters, baby. We’re going to beat that woman beater. We’ll see how he’s going to like it. He’s going to get it from a real man. Damn women beaters. We’re going to beat that woman beater down. I’m serious.” (Via Yahoo!)
Hell yeah, Ruben! You glorious bastard. The best part was that he prefaced this rant by claiming that he doesn’t “talk sh*t” and then he just laid all of this out there.
Floyd Sr. took more offense to the rant than Jr., as he tried to get his hands on Ruben for a little, “Let me tell you how we settled things in my day” action. And this was his response right after it all went down.
Honestly, I’d rather watch the dads fight.
