Decarie, DiBella Target a Robert Guerrero Showdown
By Bill Emes
Canadian welterweight contender Antonin Decarie (27-1, 8KOs) had a very impressive victory on Saturday night. He made his HBO televised debut and stopped previously undefeated Alex Perez in the sixth round. He wants to make his HBO return in the near future. One fighter he would love to face is WBC interim-champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (30-1-1, 18KOs).
"The welterweight division is a stacked division, so fighting anybody would be an honor. I just won the NABF title. I already own the WBC international [title], so my ranking at the WBC should be great. Robert Guerrero has a title in that [organization], so that would be great," Decarie said to BoxingScene.com.
Decarie's co-promoter, Lou DiBella, would love to make that fight.
"I think there are a lot of possibilities, but I would love to [make a fight] with Robert Guerrero. He would love to fight Robert Guerrero. Guerrero-Decarie, that's the fight I would love to see," DiBella said.
This would be an entertaining fight but I really doubt Guerrero would take this fight, he has bigger plans and a loss to this guy would set him back.Comment by Jizzme Mack on 10-01-2012
DiBella is a bipolar guy I see. He was talking smack about Schaeffer two days ago and now he wants to work with GBP. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]Comment by ddangerous on 10-01-2012
No way Ghost fights Decarie next. He is looking for bigger names, and I believe he will be getting one in his next fight.Comment by SCEN3RY on 10-01-2012
That's a good fight for Guerrero. Not sure why it should happen, though (other than Decarie coming off a TKO win - I don't think much of him). There are better options out there. I think Guerrero vs Kell Brook…Comment by PBP. on 10-01-2012
Meh...There's much better fights out there for Guerrero at 147.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (7)
