Today, Gilroy's champ Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KO) fought a terrific battle against Australia's Michael Katsidis (27-4, 22 KO) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The atmosphere was great; this was a fight that kept the fans blood pumping.
Guerrero looked sharp, quick and showed a lot of movement. Although Guerrero pull off the victory by unanimous decision, Katsidis made it a great fight.
The Australian beast kept coming forward and landed some great explosive body shots and powerful hooks. Michael Katsidis showed that he has a tremendous heart and is willing to fight until the fight fans are satisfied.
Robert Guerrero has been calling out Juan Manuel Marquez, but he hasn't had the chance to step in the ring with this tough Mexican warrior yet. Whether boxing fans recognize the name "Robert Guerrero" in the sport of boxing or not, Guerrero deserves a shot at the winner of Marquez-Judah.
It's quite surreal how Guerrero keeps improving and no one seems to notice it. I've always stated that Guerrero is something special and is extremely dedicated and motivated. Every time I see him fight, he improves something and gets better.
Juan Manuel Marquez is a tough Mexican fighter who is willing to do whatever it takes to end up on top. Marquez defeated Katsidis last November by TKO victory and showed that he still has a lot left for those who want to come and try to conquer him.
However, Marquez's opponent—Zab "Super" Judah, who's coming off a TKO victory over Kaizer Mabuza—is no joke. Zab has amazing speed and throws great powerful combinations. Judah's fighting style will make the fight interesting for Marquez. It will be a great experiment for both warriors.
Guerrero deserves the winner of Marquez-Judah. The Ghost will make any fight interesting. He could be fighting a defensive fighter and could still make the fight explode to get the fans excited. When fans hear the name Robert Guerrero, they should expect fireworks.
If Robert Guerrero doesn't get the winner of Marquez-Judah, he should try to fight Brandon Rios, another strong and hungry fighter.
Fight fans, if you didn't witness this great battle, you should consider watching the replay or perhaps try to follow other great fighters with a great future like Robert Guerrero.
