Guerrero: I Have The Speed, Reach To Outbox Cotto!

Last month, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero moved up two weight divisions to capture  the interim WBC welterweight championship when he defeated Selcuk Aydin via unanimous decision.

BoxingScene recently spoke to Guerrero who is looking to possibly move up in weight again. Guerrero, who captured his first title in the featherweight  division, would like to face Miguel Cotto in December and likes his chances versus the former WBA junior middleweight champion. 

"I believe I have the speed and reach to outbox Cotto. Skills win fights not weight and I'll do it with no catch-weight or stipulations like a real throwback fighter would do," Guerrero told BoxingScene.

Cotto's team has Madison Square Garden reserved for his December 1st ring return. Guerrero said that he has no problem traveling to New York where Cotto has received tremendous support from his fellow Puerto Rican fans over the years.  The Ghost has fought on the road before. He recaptured the IBF featherweight title when he traveled to Denmark and knocked out Spend Abazi in 2007.  

"I absolutely would travel to New York.  I went to Denmark on two weeks notice. Real fighters fight anywhere with no stipulations. I walk the walk not like these others so called pound for pound champions. It would be an honor to fight Cotto in New York City. It would be a great fight for the fans," concluded Guerrero.

Ghost by decision

Can't fault the guys willingness, a credit to the sport IMO You get all these guys ducking each other, faking injuries and such yet a guy comes along with real talent, calls everybody out to fight anytime, any place, any damn weight and he still gets hated on. Just can't please some people.

Cotto wins, by wide UD or Late TKO. Too much for the ghost.
