Mayweather vs. Guerrero: Floyd Mayweather calls Robert Guerrero a 'dirty fighter' who would be ‘real good’ at MMA

Jeff Bottari

Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn't seem to think much of his upcoming opponent, Robert Guerrero. In fact, "Money" seems to insinuate his boxing counterpart would make for a better mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter because he's a "dirty fighter" and doesn't have anything "sharp" in his fight game.

Did Floyd Mayweather Jr. insult the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), or compliment Robert Guerrero?

In the third episode of "All Access: Mayweather vs. Guerrero," the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, Mayweather, shared his thoughts on the skill set the "Ghost" possesses ahead of their WBC welterweight title fight this Saturday night (May 4, 2013) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Labeling Guerrero a "dirty fighter" who doesn't have anything "sharp" in his arsenal, "Money" seems to be taking a stab at the actual techniques of those who choose to participate in MMA.

His words:

"From what I see, he's just a dirty fighter. There's nothing sharp about his fight game. Robert would be real, real good if he was an MMA fighter. But he's here, he's the guy that's in front of me, so, we'll just see what he brings to the table come May 4th."

While "Ghost" seems to appreciate the techniques of some of MMA's elite, such as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez -- calling him a "great boxer" -- undefeated (43-0) Mayweather doesn't seem to think MMA stars have anything "sharp" in their repertoire.

And they're "dirty fighters" to boot.

How about it Maniacs, is "Money" Mayweather dissing the sport you all love, or complimenting his upcoming foe?
