By Chris Robinson

Earlier today, inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO’s) and WBC interim champion Robert Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) both made weight comfortably ahead of their clash tomorrow night on Showtime pay-per-view.

Following each man’s weigh-in, the two fighters faced off and stared each other down for a lengthy while. You could tell that at any given moment, things were about to get hectic.

And while things appeared to be tense, no real physical altercation took place. Guerrero came in at 147 pounds while Mayweather hit the scales at 146 pounds.

Each man appears to be in tremendous shape and there is a strong feeling amongst press row that we will be seeing a more physical type of match than expected.

The Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas is never short on colorful characters and brash lightweight champion Adrien Broner seems to fit right in with the hustle and bustle of one of boxing’s liveliest gyms.

It remains to be seen how long Broner will be hanging around, but he seems to enjoying himself while putting in a little bit of work and also watching his proclaimed ‘big brother’ Floyd Mayweather prepare for his May 4th match with Robert Guerrero at the nearby MGM Grand.

Broner made the first successful defense of his belt this past month when he stopped a courageous Gavin Rees after the fifth round in their clash in Atlantic City. Broner dished out plenty of punishment yet Rees proved himself to be resilient in the face of an uphill battle against one of the sport’s more promising talents.

Asked how he felt just a few weeks removed from his most recent showcase, Broner took a minute to reflect.
