Robert “Ghost” Guerrero Defeats Andre Berto by Unanimous Decision
It is fight day, fight fans, and we will be doing a live blog from the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif., where the big welterweight showdown of Robert Guerrero vs. Andre Berto will be taking place tonight.
Yesterday at the weigh-in all main-event and co-main-event fighters made weight.
Guerrero came in at 146.1 pounds, and the large Mexican and Mexican-American community of Ontario overwhelmingly came out to support him as he received the much louder cheers and fan support.
Andre Berto came in at 146.8 pounds, as always in top form.
This weigh-in took place the at the local large shopping mall of Ontario Mills right during Black Friday shopping, so one can imagine the crowds and buzz it created.
I will be flying in to Ontario in the next few hours, and I'll be updating this live blog from my ringside media seat, where all the action will be taking place.
