Guerrero Will Receive Injury Prognosis on Wednesday

By Keith Idec
 
Robert Guerrero should receive the prognosis on his injured left shoulder when the junior welterweight contender re-visits his doctor Wednesday, which should enable his handlers to create a timetable for rescheduling his highly anticipated fight against Marcos Maidana.

“Robert saw the doctor [Monday] and is going back to the doctor on Wednesday,” said Richard Schaefer, chief executive officer for Golden Boy Promotions, which represents Guerrero and Maidana. “Then it’s going to be decided what the next steps are, whether it’s going to require surgery or it’s going to be rehab. Depending on that, we’ll determine how long he’s going to be out. And obviously, Maidana worked hard and trained, so he’s eager to fight. We just have to wait to see what the doctor’s going to say.”

If Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KOs, 2 NC) doesn’t need surgery or long-term rehabilitation to get healthy, the card could be rescheduled relatively soon, preferably at its original site, HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., near Guerrero’s hometown of Gilroy, Calif.

If not, Schaefer said Thursday after announcing the card had been postponed due to Guerrero’s injury that it’s possible a card could be constructed for Sept. 16 in Las Vegas to accommodate some of the healthy fighters who were supposed to compete on the card Saturday night in San Jose. Like Argentina’s Maidana (30-2, 27 KOs), heavyweight prospect Seth Mitchell (22-0-1, 16 KOs), who was supposed to face Mike Mollo (20-3-1, 12 KOs) in the 10-round co-feature on HBO, must wait until Guerrero gets the final word on his recovery before learning when and where he’ll return to the ring.

Guerrero, 28, suffered what was feared to be a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder while sparring on Wednesday in Big Bear Lake, Calif.
