Former two-division champion Joan Guzman will return to the ring on March 7 in Washington D.C. The announcement confirms a previous report from's David Greisman over the weekend suggesting the possibility of the troubled boxer being added to the broadcast.

Guzman will face Mexico's Javier Castro on the show. Also appearing on the card — in separate bouts - will be local favorite Anthony Peterson, as well as red hot newcomer Erickson Lubin, who will first appear on the February 7 edition of ESPN2's Friday Night Fights series and possible one more fight in between.

Guzman (33-1-1, 20KO) hasn't fought since suffering the lone loss of his career, a technical decision at the hands of Khabib Allakhverdiev in November 2012. Guzman suffered a rare knockdown and was outboxed for much of the bout before suffering injuries in the 7th and 8th rounds, the latter forcing the bout to come to a halt and go to the scorecards.

An attempt to return to the ring last June resulted in a far too common theme - coming in over the contracted weight limit. The Dominican boxer was more than a division over the limit for his scheduled interim title fight with Vicente Mosquera, resulting in his being removed from what would have been a headlining slot on Telemundo.

The incident marked at least the fifth time in his career he failed to make weight for a contracted bout, twice resulting in a cancellation. Out of the ring for more than a year, the former champ promises this time to be different.

“We have returned to the old school, we left the weights aside which built up my mass and added simple and traditional routines like morning runs, bicycle and jump the rope to bring down volume and build up stamina," insists Guzman.

“We do not underestimate anyone. We know that Castro will come with the desire to add a name like Guzman’s to his record and our job is to make sure that does not happen. We will take this fight with all seriousness and we will go in the ring with a fight plan that will give us the victory.”

IMO it's too late for lost time for this guy who's such a promising boxer before but it is what it is. Let's see if he can get it together.

Guzman can't no longer afford any issues at the scales.. These are his last fights and should leave a sense of excitement if he wants any further opportunities in this here, his last run

Guzman is another waste of talent. Poor training habits and bad choices that he has made wasted opportunities of good things that he could had done with his career

Tell Guzman the weight level is 2 levels below the actual contracted weight, maybe he'll be on target.

His skills leave me in awe. That was a bad performance vs Khabib but he couldve gotten in there with pacman (at his peak) and wouldve been an amazing fight a closest one to may-pac for those who still care.
