Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Robert Guerrero: LIVE UPDATES On Welterweight Title Fight

A few days after his father nearly instigated a brawl at a pre-fight press conference, Robert Guerrero (31-1-1) will get his own shot at Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0).

"The fighters are the ones who fight, not the fathers," Mayweather said after the heated exchange during which he was called a "woman beater," via The Associated Press.

With Mayweather's WBC welterweight title and flawless record on the line, the fighters will finally fight at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday night. This fight is Mayweather's first since serving jail time after a conviction on misdemeanor domestic violence and harassment charges. This bout is also the first of a blockbuster 30-month, six bout deal that Mayweather signed with Showtime earlier this year.

At age 36, Mayweather arrived for the bout as the favorite but is already talking about walking away from the sport after this contract is fulfilled.

"In 30 months my career is over," he said ahead of the fight, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN. "I want to rack up my six victories and hopefully do commentating and keep the sport of boxing alive. That's what I'm focused on."

Undoubtedly, Mayweather intends to head into that retirement with his record unblemished. While the oddsmakers favor him to wake up on Sunday with a 44-0 career record, Guerrero and his father have other ideas.

Can Guerrero pull off the upset?

Amazing. Floyd stood in corner and Guerrero didn't throw a punch. Guerrero warned by referee Robert Byrd for dirty tactics during clinch.
