Robert Guerrero charged with felony gun possession, due in court on May 14

Ethan Miller

Robert Guerrero has two big fights coming up in May: He faces Floyd Mayweather in the ring on May 4, then 10 days later will have to return to New York for a court hearing after pleading not guilty to felony gun possession.

Robert Guerrero should be able to focus on his May 4 fight with Floyd Mayweather, which will almost certainly go ahead as scheduled, but the welterweight fighter will have to be back in New York just 10 days later, when he's due to appear in court on charges of felony gun possession.

Guerrero, 29, declared his weapon to a Delta airlines agent, at which point he was arrested. The strict New York gun laws mean that what Guerrero has done here would be legal elsewhere, which gives the indication that there was probably no malicious intent on his part. Instead, it's more a major blunder that could have serious consequences.

But as far as his boxing life goes, he's been freed without bail to return to California and training camp, and though this will certainly be in his head for a while, he's got to find a way to hunker down and keep his eyes on the Mayweather fight. Obviously the ramifications of this could be bigger than any boxing match, so that's going to be difficult to do, to say the least.

Guerrero pleaded not guilty to the charges.
