INGLEWOOD, CA, May, 17, 2014 — At the peak of a stacked action packed card, in the beautifully remodeled Forum in front of a passionate and boisterous crowd, Juan Manuel Marquez put on a master class performance in dominating Mike Alvarado over 12 brisk rounds.

Juan Manuel ‘Dinamita’ Marquez of Mexico City (57-1 -1, 40 Kos) having gone undefeated in The Forum between 1995-1999 wining 12 fights in the building was attempting to bounce back from defeat at the hands of then WBO Welterweight champion Tim Bradley. ‘Mile High’ Mike Alvarado (34-2, 23 Kos) from Denver Colorado was looking to get back into the win column following a stoppage defeat in his hometown to Ruslan Provodnikov last October.

SAN JOSE, CA, July 28, 2012 — Questions were answered, tempers flared and the fans were treated to one of the most consistently action packed cards of the year at the HP Pavilion in Downtown San Jose. Local favorite Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero earned a hard fought unanimous decision against the never-say- die Turk, Selcuk Aydin. 

Selcuk Aydin (23-0 (17 kos) entered the ring first to ear deafening boos but seemed to enjoy his moment in the spotlight albeit in a negative light, relishing the villain role as he smiled and laughed on his way to the ring. There were a handful of Turkish flag waving fans sprinkled throughout the arena that more than made up for their small numbers with loud chants of “Selcuk, Selcuk, Selcuk”, this showing of support for the foreign “enemy” fighter further spurred the local Guerrero supporters into a frenzy.

Robert Guerrero crashes the Welterweight division against undefeated power puncher Selcuk Aydin on Showtime Championship Boxing.

Pre-Fight Analysis by Christopher Morgan

SAN JOSE, CA, July 27, 2012 – In a fight with huge stakes not only for both men, but for the health of boxing and its deepest division, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, the native son of the South Bay Area is taking a massive leap up in weight if not so much in class when he takes on undefeated slugger Selcuk Aydin of Turkey.

Robert Guerrero of Gilroy, California — about 30 miles south of San Jose — has had his share of outside the ring troubles that have caused a couple of lengthy layoffs over the past 6 years, the most serious involving his wife’s near fatal bout with Cancer. Guerrero of “The Ghost” as he is referred to by most fans, is now making yet another comeback, this time from a rotator cuff injury that has kept him sidelined for the past 16 months, and if we know anything about Guerrero bouncing back, he usually handles it with aplomb. Guerrero’s last three contests have been against the respectable trio of Joel Casamayor, Vincente Excobedo and Michael Katsidis, the three of which carried a combined record of 86-9-1, with all bouts at or near the Lightweight limit of 135 pounds.

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.
