“The fans want to see a lot more of me,” Mayweather told reporters at the MGM Grand Detroit. “I will give you excitement.”
Mayweather, who turns 36 on Sunday, was there to support Saturday’s card at the nearby Masonic Temple Theatre as well as Smith, his friend and sparring partner from Las Vegas, who is vying for his first-ever professional title.
Mayweather, who grew up in Grand Rapids, Mich., said he began training for the Guerrero fight Wednesday by running in the gym of Ottawa Hills High School in his hometown.
“This is a guy I know I can’t overlook,” Mayweather said of Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs), the WBC’s interim welterweight champion.
He promised an entertaining fight against Guerrero.
“It’s Showtime, baby,” he said.
