Fighter ignores taunts of ‘woman beater’

Eight-time world champion Floyd Mayweather refused to be drawn into a war of words at the final news conference for his WBC welterweight title clash with Robert Guerrero on Wednesday, despite being labeled a “woman beater” by his opponent’s father.

The undefeated Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), who has said he has 30 months of boxing left before he brings the curtain down on his career, was a picture of calm as Ruben Guerrero screamed at him: “We are going to beat the woman beater.”

Mayweather served two months of a 90-day sentence for domestic violence last year.

“I don’t have to sit here and badmouth his father,” shrugged Mayweather after the news conference. “Only God can judge me.”
