The media blitz for the May 4 fight between Gilroy's Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and Floyd Mayweather reached New York on Tuesday for a media brunch.

"It's funny because I've been talking to the media and telling them that I'm going to beat Floyd," Guerrero said. "Now, it's time to get out there and do it. I'm ready. A lot of people think I'm crazy, but I think you're crazy for thinking that I'm crazy. Just look at my wife. She asked the Lord to heal her and He did."

Guerrero's wife, Casey, is healthy after a long battle with leukemia. Earlier Tuesday, Robert and Casey met "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts, who also received a bone marrow transplant.

"When you believe, amazing things happen," Guerrero said. "I'm telling you all now that I am going to beat him. I believe God does things for a reason. I believe he put me here to humble Floyd Mayweather, and it is going to happen.''
