Robert Guerrero Has A Warning For The Welterweight Division
Former two-weight world champion Robert Guerrero is on the search for a bigger fight that can lead him to a title shot after he beat Victor Ortiz via unanimous decision at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas on August 21.
Following his fourth consecutive win, the 38-year-old boxing veteran has now planned to come after juggernauts of the welterweight division.
“If you’re going to be in this sport, you must be [fully motivated] in it to go all the way,” he told the Ring. “I would like to fight any and all of the big names at welterweight.
“[I want] to become a world champion, that’s why we are in this sport, to reach the pinnacle of boxing. I want to make it to the hall of fame, one day.”
Reflecting on his win against Ortiz, Guerrero found a loophole in his strategy.
“I thought I should’ve boxed a little more but once you get in there things change,” said the southpaw. “The fight went on the inside and that’s when it turned into a slugfest. I know I have the skills to box more so that’s something I will work on.”
Guerrero’s career spans over two decades. The boxing ace has shared the ring with big names of the industry such as Joel Casamayor, Berto, Floyd Mayweather, Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia.
