The Ghost is a Two Division Champion

Robert Guerrero is coming off of a dominant title winning effort over South Africa's Malcolm Klassen. The win makes him a two-division world champion, and one of the top rated super featherweight boxers on the planet. Known as The Ghost, Guerrero was anything but on Saturday night in Houston. He was consistently in Klassen's face, landing solid combinations and dictating the pace and distance of the action. I got the chance to speak with Robert about his performance and his future plans.

Congrats on the big win…Would you say this was the best performance of your career?

RG: So far, I'd have to say yea. I mean, we had a game plan, I executed it and I did a lot of stuff in there I usually don't do.

So have the doubters officially been silenced?

RG: Yea, officially I think the doubters have been shushed. But there's always somebody out there. So you keep on going and stay working hard. More... »

The fight is scheduled for September 19, on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez fight. Juarez, 28 (20) – 4 – 1 is looking for a breakout win after coming up short against some of the biggest names in the sport over the last several years.

We're just about a month out from your rematch with Chris John, how's your training going?

RJ: Training is going great man. Basically I never stopped training after he cancelled the previous fight.

So you feel like you'll be in great condition by the time the fight rolls around…

RJ: Oh definitely, and I think everything happens for a reason. For whatever reason he wasn't able to fight the last fight. I'm not one to say because I don't know for sure, but it gave me that much more time to prepare myself for him. More... »

Interview with Juan Diaz

Juan Diaz is Training for Paulie MalignaggiFormer lightweight champion Juan " Baby Bull" Diaz, 34 (17) – 2, is finalizing his preparations to meet Paulie Malignaggi, a fight to be televised on HBO on August 22nd. Diaz will be back in Houston, fighting in his hometown for the third straight time. Prior to his first real fight in the junior welterweight division, I spoke to Diaz about his upcoming fight, his career and his future.

We're less than two weeks out from your fight against Paulie Malignaggi, how are you feeling right now?

JD: I'm feeling great. I had a great day of sparring today. I have three guys that came in from out of the state. I'm feeling great and I'm excited to be back here in Houston once again and trying to make it back to the top.

This is your first fight at junior welterweight, at least since you were a newly professional fighter. Were you having trouble making 135 or was this just a matter of taking the best fight that was out there right now?

JD: I wasn't having no problem making the 135 limit, but this was the best fight out there for me. I believe that Paul Malignaggi is not at all taking a step down. I definitely want to fight the best out there even though in my last fight I was not successful, I didn't want to take a tune up fight or a warm up fight. I told my managers, look, I'm young right now, I have all of the energy in the world, so I want to fight the best. More... »

Manny Pacquiao Knocks out Ricky Hatton in Two Rounds

It only took two rounds. Two rounds was all that Manny Pacquiao needed in order to completely obliterate Ricky Hatton and his hopes at conquering the pound for pound champion.

Nothing can be taken away from Pacquiao's performance this time. There was no old legend that had to cut more weight than he was accustomed to. What stood in Pacquiao's way was the reigning junior welterweight champion. A fighter renowned for his strength and his power. And he was completely outmatched against the pound for pound king.

On May 2nd in Las Vegas, shown on HBO Pay-Per-View, Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton will finally meet each other in the ring. There will have been months of hype and buzz about the fight, including a four part 24/7 series on HBO.

The beautiful thing about a fight, however, is that come fight night all of the hype can be put aside. There's no more time for life stories and goals. No more time for big mouthed trainers. It's just two men staring each other down in that ring. The better man will almost always emerge. More... »

Interview with Eddie Chambers

Eddie Chambers fought four times in 2008. His championship plans were derailed when he lost a decision to Alexander Povetkin in a title eliminator. For the rest of 2008 he was on the rebound trail, putting three more wins on the resume. Now 33 (18) - 1, he is preparing for a March 27 fight against one of the top heavyweights in the world, the power punching Sam Peter. I caught him after a recent training session to talk about the upcoming fight and the state of the heavyweight division.

How is training going for the fight? It's just a few weeks away now, so you must be close to top form.

EC: It's going great, I just worked out today with Javier Mora, so it's good. I've been stepping up and having a few more guys come in to see where I'm at and what we can do.

Peter is a big guy; he'll likely weigh at least 30 pounds more than you on fight night. What are you doing to prepare for that? I know you said you have Mora in there in camp... More... »

Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero

I got the chance to speak with Robert Guerrero, two-time IBF featherweight champion about his upcoming fight against Daud Cino Yordan (23-0, 17 KOs) of Indonesia, fighting on HBO in his home town of San Jose and how it feels to be back in action.

How was the Sharks game the other night? (Robert was a guest at HP Pavilion for the Sharks-Kings game on February 19)

RG: It was nice. It was a good game, we had a good time out there.

It must be great to be in front of the fans and obviously you are going to be fighting in San Jose coming up. What does that mean to you to be fighting in front of your hometown fans?

RG: It means a lot, I've been wanting to fight in San Jose for a long time, and the fans want me to fight out here. The event is going to be huge. It's going to be an HBO fight, first time ever that HBO has been to San Jose. It's going to be awesome and I can't wait. I know everybody's excited. It's what the Bay Area needs, big fights.
