Fernando Guerrero Injured, Off 4/20 Shobox Card

NEW YORK (April 17, 2012) - Dominican southpaw Fernando Guerrero (23-1, 18 KO's) of Salisbury, Md., suffered a partially torn left biceps in training camp, forcing him to withdraw from his upcoming fight against Chris "The Irish Ghost'' Fitzpatrick. The previously announced 10-round super middleweight fight between Guerrero and Fitzpatrick was tabbed to open a three-fight edition of ShoBox: The New Generation this Friday, April 20. SHOWTIME® will move ahead with a live doubleheader (11 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Miss.
 
The main event will feature former undisputed 160-pound World Champion Jermain Taylor (29-4-1, 18 KO's) facing undefeated Caleb "Golden" Truax (18-0-1, 10 KO's) in a 10-round middleweight bout. In the 10-round junior middleweight co-feature, former Cuban amateur standout Erislandy Lara (15-1-1, 10 KO's) takes on former world title challenger Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20 KO's).
