Chris John Sticking To 126; No Robert Guerrero Fight

By Rick Reeno

Contrary to various published reports, WBA featherweight champion Chris John is not moving up to the super featherweight division to fight Robert Guerrero. BoxingScene.com spoke with John's agent/advisor Sampson Lewkowicz, who denied such reports.

"At one point, we did receive an offer from Golden Boy Promotions but we never answered. Chris John has no problems making the weight [at featherweight] and we see no reason to move up when all of the action is at 126," Lewkowicz said.

The featherweight division is becoming one of the most talent rich weight divisions in the sport. There is simply too much money to be made at 126. Currently Juan Manuel Lopez, Steven Luevano, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Israel Vazquez, Rafael Marquez, Celestino Caballero [soon to be moving up] and several others are at the weight.

Chris John should stay at 126 as long as he can make the weight comfortably.Other wise if he's struggling then indeed it's time to move up,though he has come off as a tad bit lethargic in his recent fights crossing…

[QUOTE=Ryn0;6936551]Don't suppose you could give me a link to his fights? I haven't seen much of Peterson either, I hope Bradley wins but Peterson seems better than his record suggest. I've seen a couple fights and he's fast but I…
