Watch Showtime and see whose cornerman is Jesus

Underneath the James Toney/Samuel Peter heavyweight scrap a week from Saturday, there will be an IBF featherweight title fight shown on Showtime for your added enjoyment.

Ohio-born Eric "Mighty Mouse" Aiken, who beat Vlad Pereira in Boston in May to secure the belt, will meet Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero in a battle of born-again Christians.

The 26-year-old Aiken (16-4) comes in with solid momentum, having beaten Tim Austin before Pereira.

Guerrero, a 23-year-old Californian with a 18-1-1 mark, is a southpaw whose only loss was to Gamaliel Diaz in 2005. He avenged the defeat with a sixth-round KO in June.

One nagging question in my mind: both fighters advertise their faith in their lord and savior Jesus Christ. If one man defeats the other, will he determine that Jesus favored the winner more at the Staples Center on Saturday? Read more at the BLOG
