De La Hoya Wants Guerrero To Get Biggest Fight Possible

By Edward Chaykovsky

If Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero is able to defeat Yoshihiro Kamegai later tonight at the StubHub Center in Carson, Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya wants to get him the biggest fight possible and he doesn't care if that opponent is promoted by Golden Boy, Top Rank or another rival promoter.

Guerrero, who tried to break away from Golden Boy earlier this year, has not disclosed his current contractual situation with Golden Boy, but he signed on with powerful adviser Al Haymon a few months ago.

Guerrero is coming back for the first time since the twelve round decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May of 2013.

"Well, Golden Boy just wants to make the biggest and the best fights and if it means making the most money, making the best fights happen that the fight fans want to watch, that's what's going to happen.  We're all about the fans, giving them the best fights that we have to offer and, obviously, we know Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero is one of the few elite fighters that boxing has today, so whether Golden Boy has an opponent or whether any other promoter has an opponent where we can make the biggest fight happen, that's what must happen for the fans," De La Hoya said.

We now know why he tried to get out his contract with Golden Boy earlier this year...he probably got word that Richard was leaving...
