Guerrero Advises DeGale: Destroy Me Quick Or Else

James DeGale's challenger Jose Maria Guerrero has called him a fool and told him he'd better finish him off early or get beat.

Spanish hitman Guerrero challenges DeGale for his WBO Intercontinental Super-Middleweight title on Friday 9th December at the Liverpool Echo Arena, live on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456, Virgin Ch. 546).

"I will give him some advice: destroy me quickly, if not, you will have a big problem," Guerrero told DeGale.

"If he believes that he will knock out me quickly, he shows that he’s an ignoramus and if he thinks that this is the easiest fight of his career then he will have a big surprise."

The former Spanish champion said that he will do anything to win and return to Spain as champion.

"This is the biggest opportunity of my career and I will make all the necessary arrangements for me to win and come back to Spain with the title,"

"I'm not accepting this opportunity for money. I'm accepting it because I will win and fight for the world title myself next year,"

"In my life I only know boxing so if I want a good future I can't lose this fight. My options are win or win, I can't take another result. I think that this hunger is my strength. I need to win and I will win,"

"I want to show the world who Jose Maria Guerrero is."

Tickets from £40 are available from the Liverpool Echo Arena Box Office: 0844 8000 400 or

Guerrero is still fighting? Really? Thought he retired in 2005 after getting KO'd by that 4-5-1 guy in Ripollet.

If Guerrero wins I will be stunned to say the least.
