New York: Robert Guerrero, set to fight Floyd Mayweather in five weeks, was arrested on Thursday for allegedly trying to take a handgun onto an airplane, prosecutors in New York said.

The 30-year-old Guerrero was arrested at John F Kennedy Airport on gun possession charges while trying to catch a flight to Las Vegas.

"I hope Mr Guerrero fights better than he thinks," said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. "You cannot bring an unlicensed weapon - loaded or unloaded into this country or this city. And if you do you will be arrested and face felony charges."
