Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero has been a ghost literally for over 15 months. It was April 9, 2011 since we last seen him in action against Michael Katsidis where he boxed his way to a unanimous decision.  Since then, he was plagued by a shoulder injury preventing him from a scheduled bout against Marcos Maidana last August and the center of ridicule from the media for his bold statements in calling out the best fighters and how he deserves the shot.

Granted Guerrero does showcase a resume that is worthy of taking notice.  A former 3-division world champion, Guerrero’s (29-1-1-18KO) record reflects credible opposition and his move up in weight class shows some indication of his confidence in his own abilities and desired career direction on future bouts.

The winner of this Saturday’s upcoming bout against unbeaten Turk Selcuk Aydin (23-0-17) becomes the mandatory challenger to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and both fighters would revel in the opportunity.  Many are banking that Guerrero’s boxing skills will lead him to a shutout decision against Aydin but it is clear that Guerrero is not taking his opponent lightly.  Both camps have already shared moments of their training and both fighters appear to be in top shape for this chance of a lifetime.

With the upsets and chaotic decisions that have occurred already this year in boxing, most would not be surprised how this bout turns out either way.  Nonetheless, Guerrero is promising to come back with authority and Aydin is speaking of laying “The Ghost” to rest.  This spells out one incredible night in boxing as both fighters are going to be coming in with their A-Game and have no choice but to win.
