(Gilroy CA, September 9, 2009) – Newly crowned IBF Jr. lightweight champion, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (25-1-1, 17 KO's), had a smile on his face when he heard the news that undefeated WBO super-featherweight champion, Roman “Rocky” Martinez (22-0-1, 13 KO's), is seeking a unification bout with him.

Guerrero, a three-time world champion in two weight classes, had this to say when asked if he would welcome a fight with Martinez, “Bring it.  If Martinez gets past his next opponent, I would love to fight him.  He is a worthy champion that says he never refuses to fight anyone, anywhere, well if that is the case, than lets do this!  A unification bout between Martinez and me is great for our sport and the fans deserve these types of fights.”

It's no secret; Mexico pitted against Puerto Rico is boxing's most heated rivalry.  Guerrero went on to say, “Being that I'm Mexican-American, a fight against Martinez brings two cultures together for a fabulous night of boxing.  He says nobody can stop him, we'll see if he can handle the heat that's going to be coming from my fists.  I believe in myself and the great team around me.  If he steps in the ring with me, he'll find out real quick that he's in a battle.  Martinez is a good fighter, but I believe God has blessed me with the more superior attributes.  I hope this fight happens.”

“The Ghost” recently defeated former two-time world champion Malcolm Klassen, a fight in which Guerrero almost broke the punch stat record, throwing 1,200 punches.  It's fair to say, that if Guerrero vs. Martinez materializes, it will become a highly anticipated fight that fans would eagerly await.
