Aydin On Guerrero: I'll Be Called 'Ghostbuster' After 7/28

After three years of waiting for his mandatory title shot, unbeaten Selcuk Aydin (23-0, 17 KOs) will face Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KOs) on July 28th for the WBC interim world welterweight championship. Aydin had secured his position as No. 1 contender with a KO victory over "Sugar" Jackson Bonsu back in July 2009 but was forced to fight Canada based Romanian Jo Jo Dan twice for the WBC Silver Championship instead of getting a shot at the big green and gold belt.

"I am very happy that the deal has been finalized and I’m looking forward to a great fight", states Aydin. "For all these years I have been waiting for a major fight in the USA but nobody wanted to fight me. Andre Berto ducked me over years, Victor Ortiz decided that it would be better for his career to lose to Mayweather than to me, and Mayweather himself obviously prefers doing time in jail to stepping in the ring with me. I give props to Robert Guerrero that he is man enough to actually fight me. He will eventually regret this decision when he finds himself at hospital with a broken jaw like my last opponent."

In November 2011 hard-hitting Aydin had knocked down Jo Jo Dan twice en route to a unanimous decision win, breaking his opponent’s jaw in the third or fourth round.

"I would say against Dan I was at about 60 percent. It was enough to beat him but I know I can do much better", says Aydin. "Against Guerrero I will be at 120 percent. I am already all fired up and I have lots of time to prepare for July 28th. You will see the best Selcuk Aydin ever. I know that this is my big chance to establish myself on the US market and there is no way that I will let it pass."

Aydin’s promoter Ahmet Oner secured the deal negotiating the fight with Guerrero’s promoter Golden Boy and the WBC.

"I thank all parties involved - especially Richard Schaefer as well as Jose and Mauricio Sulaiman - for their effort in order to make this fight happen", says Oner. "Selcuk has surely come a long way. On July 28th he will finally show the world what he’s got. I’m sure that it will be a terrific fight between two rising stars. Both guys need this win to make themselves a name at 147 which is without a doubt one of the strongest divisions at the moment."

The fight against Guerrero will be Aydin’s second bout in the USA. In April 2009 "The Thunderstorm from the Black Sea" beat Said Ouali in Nevada by split decision.
"Even though my last major fights have been at home in Turkey I never had a problem fighting abroad", says Aydin. "I will beat Guerrero anytime, anyplace. He calls himself "The Ghost"? After July 28th I will be known as "The Ghostbuster"!"

Guerrero is wasting his time with this fight. A Marquez fight would have been better. Guerrero wins by TKO.
