Robert Guerrero Eyes Juan Manuel Marquez Showdown

By Ryan Burton

After his recent domination of Argentian Roberto Arrieta, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero told BoxingScene.com that he wants to fight Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez next. 

The lineal lightweight champion has a rematch with Juan Diaz scheduled for July 31st. Guerrero doesn't want to disrespect Diaz but feels that Marquez will take care of business again.  "Marquez is a legend. Diaz is a great fighter but I expect Marquez to pull it off again."

Guerrero said he felt rusty when he first got in the ring but once Arrieta felt his power his opponent wouldn't engage with him.  "Ryan you know if a guy won't fight back it's hard to chase down your opponent and put together combinations. My corner wanted me to put my punches together.  I am happy I got some rounds in and that I got the win."

When asked about how far in weight he was willing to move up, the former featherweight and super featherweight felt that he could eventually move up to welterweight. "I think I can eventually work my way up to 147. The weight felt good tonight."  If Guerrero is able to win titles all the way up to 147 that would put him in select company as a five division champion.

I think Marquez beats him decisively.

He should of tried to get that fourth tittle. Too bad dum beristian is the worts manager in boxing and fed em to mayweather. He should of gone after urango when he had a tittle. That was a very winnable…

I was sitting near Robert during Mayweather/Mosley and I was right next to his publicist (who was pulling for mosley hard, lol). He was telling me they were looking to fight Katsidis next, so this is definitely a step up.

[QUOTE=el rey;8274643]If JMM *knocks on wood* beats Juan Diaz then I suspect he will retire right then and there. Boxing's been good to him and one lasty paycheck in front of the Mexican fans will be enough satisfaction for Dinamita…
