LAS VEGAS (AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. admitted this week what many have long suspected — that he hand picks every opponent who enters the ring with him.

He also decides how much they get paid and what the contract details will be. So Robert Guerrero was somewhat prepared when Mayweather picked him to be the opponent for his first fight in a year Saturday night at the MGM Grand hotel.

What he wasn't prepared for was what Mayweather's camp insisted on putting in the contract.

A rematch clause, in case the unthinkable happens and Mayweather gets beat. Guerrero said it shows that Mayweather may not be as confident about this fight as he claims to be.

Guerrero said it also shows that Mayweather might realize that he has picked the wrong opponent.
