March 15, 2012 – Five-time world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KOs), of Gilroy, California, has signed to fight undefeated WBC No. 1 ranked contender, Selcuk “Mini Tyson” Aydin (23-0, 17 KOs), of Hamburg, Germany, for the WBC interim welterweight title. The fight is scheduled for July, 28, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. and will be televised live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING.

Guerrero, who’s captured multiple world titles in lighter weight classes, will take the unprecedented step of moving up two weight divisions to fight Aydin, who holds the WBC Silver belt and is a full-fledged welterweight, fighting most of his career at 147 pounds. If victorious, Guerrero will be the first fighter in history to jump straight from lightweight to welterweight and win a championship. Hall of Famer Roberto Duran and Shane Mosley are others who have made the leap from lightweight to welterweight, but both had tune up fights before challenging for a belt.

by on Aug.27, 2011, under Boxing News, Press Releases

LOS ANGELES, CA, August 27, 2011 — One week after a shoulder injury forced Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero’s to withdraw from his August 27 world title challenge against WBA Super Lightweight World Champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana, it was recommended by Dr. Michael Dillingham that Guerrero have arthroscopic surgery to repair a tear in his left rotator cuff.

“After talking to Dr. Dillingham today, Robert will undergo an arthroscopic shoulder surgery procedure to take a closer look at the damage done to his rotator cuff,” said Guerrero’s manager Bob Santos.  “Right now the MRI shows a slight tear, but Dillingham advised us that it would be in our best interest to scope the shoulder to check for other damage that an MRI can’t reveal.  No definitive answer can be made as to when Robert Guerrero will return to the ring until after his surgery is completed next Tuesday.  We are hoping he’ll be back in six months, God willing his surgery goes smoothly.”  (continue reading…)
