November 27, 2012 - In a battle that had Super Bowl like stakes on the line, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs) thoroughly dominated former two-time welterweight world champion Andre Berto (28-2, 22 KOs), over twelve grinding back and forth action-packed rounds, dropping him twice in the process. The slug-fest has many commentators, fans and media, considering this war to be "Fight of the year".
Guerrero, a four-time world champion over six weight classes, is the only Mexican-American fighter, other than future Hall of Famer and promoter Oscar De La Hoya, to win as many titles in as many weight classes.
After once campaigning at the Junior featherweight (122 pounds) weight class, "The Ghost" has now triumphed over six weight divisions, being the only active fighter other than Manny Pacquiao to compete and win in as many divisions.
"My number one goal is to give the fans the fights they deserve and use my platform as a prizefighter to help save lives by directing them to BeTheMatch.org which allows people to become bone marrow donors." said Guerrero
It's time for fresh faces with an old school mentality to rise up and Robert has proved to pack fifteen grueling rounds into twelve-round fights, bringing back the memories of boxing's best throwback champions.
When asked what pushes him to win fights with a blood and guts approach, Guerrero simply answered, "My faith in my Lord and savior Jesus Christ and my Family. My favorite verse is ACTS 2:38."
Many pundits are salivating at the prospect of a Guerrero vs. Pacquiao showdown, which would be an all out offensive battle. Both fighters are rugged, present an aggressive come forward style, and the fans, media, and those watching around the world, would be anticipating a scintillating all out action packed war.
"Obviously I'll be watching the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez fight closely and I'll be ready to take either one of them out," Guerrero concluded.
