Andre Berto, Former Two-Time World Champion

"I'll use my speed, power and I'll be smart against Guerrero.  "I'm already in shape and ready to work.

"I'm hungry.  Sometimes you have to go through tough times, sit back, appreciate what you have in life and move forward.

"I went through a hell of a year for me.  Now I'm back to the basics.  This is what I needed.

"I want to make statements with my fights, not take tune up fights.  I know the level of fighter that I am and that's what I expect from my opponents too.

Robert Guerrero, Four-Division & Six-Time World Champion

"I believe I can knock him out.  I want to send him home hurting and damaged.

"They don't give me the credit I deserve, so I just have to keep winning.  I wanted to find one of the strongest guys out there that no one else wanted to fight to prove I'm the best.

"I know Berto is coming to fight and he's hungry, but so am I.  I'm always hungry.  I'm hungry all the time because I want to be the best in the world, not just a world champion.  I don't want to settle, I want to be the best.

"I'm looking forward to taking care of business on November 24."

Richard Schaefer, CEO Golden Boy Promotions

"Robert Guerrero is one of the most underrated champions in the world.  I can't understand why he's not at the top of the pound for pound list.

"We have Andre Berto vs. Robert Guerrero, Keith Thurman vs. Carlos Quintana and Richar Abril vs. Sharif Bogere.  This is a huge event.

"The fights on November 24 are 'pick em' bouts where either fighter can win.

"November 24 is a 'thank you' to fight fans on Thanksgiving weekend.  Tickets are priced extremely low, starting at $25.00."

Tony Morgan, Berto's Trainer

"He can call himself whatever he wants ("The Ghost"), but at the end of the night, he'll be calling himself a loser.

"Guerrero is a great fighter, but he's never been hit by someone as hard as Berto can hit in the 147 lb. division."

Ruben Guerrero Sr., Guerrero's Father/Trainer

"We're going to have the advantages in all aspects against Berto.

"Robert is hungry, like a lion.  He's going to swallow him up on November 24.

"We're going to be 100% ready for Berto and I promise it's going to be a great fight."

Having a hard time picking a winner in this win. Both guys are solid contenders, but not quite at the pinnacle of the division. Only thing I am betting on is a close fight.

I'd be happy to see Berto sent home. Berto is another vacation guy who relish seeing his fights canceled. He's not bothered by it. Probably one of the most lackadaisical boxers currently. Guerrero is hungry to fight the best, so…

Guerreros not under rated. He's a so-so champ that used his height and reach at the lower division. He has good boxing skills but not 1 punch KO power. Honestly I see Berto by stoppage. Uppercuts will be too fast…

Comment by richardt on 10-24-2012

Not sure why Guerrero lately has been into the "I'm going to hurt him, send him home hurt" or whatever type talk lately. Maybe he is trying to drum up business. Not sure. I've been a fan of his but…

Like Schafer said "Robert's underrated" all he does is come to fight and win. I got Guerrero by UD.
