Morning coffee at my favorite Starbucks on Western and Glenoaks inGlendale, I discover a new twit posted by Oscar De La Hoya:” I have a feeling we haven’t seen the best from The Ghost Guerrero.”
Rising star of the sweet science, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero from Gilroy, California has been following in footsteps of Manny Pacquaio, moving up through weight divisions, winning titles and looking stronger and stronger every time out. With featherweight, super feather weight and lightweight titles in his pocket, Robert is moving up to one of the hottest divisions in boxing, junior welterweight.
“I’m coming out to make a statement, going into 140 pounds,” said Guerrero who is scheduled to face one of the hardest punchers in boxing, Argentine, Marcos Maidana on August, 27th at the HP Pavilion inSan Jose:” It’s my fourth weight class, my fifth weight class actually. I am excited about it. I want to come out and show the world that I am one of the best to get those fights with Pacquaio and Mayweather.” A natural athlete who played high school football, Robert looks big and strong enough to do damage at 140 and 147 weight divisions.
According to Bob Santos, Robert’s manager, team Guerrero offered to face Amir Kahn when his fight with Timothy Bradley did not materialize. They were turned down. Instead, Guerrero will face granite chinned Marcos Maidana who took Kahn to the limit and beyond in their memorable fight last year.
