Robert Guerrero-Yoshihiro Kamegai in Play For 6/21

By Rick Reeno

According to Bob Santos, co-manager of former multi-division champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KOs), there are ongoing discussions to face Japan's Yoshihiro Kamegai (24-1-1, 21 KOs) on June 21, potentially at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It would be Guerrero's first fight since last May's decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Kamegai has won two in a row, by knockout, since losing a ten round decision to Johan Perez last June, also in Carson.

"[Co-manager] Luis DeCubas Jr. and [adviser] Al Haymon are working on Robert's next fight. That was one of the names that we discussed, but to my knowledge the fight is not yet finalized," Santos told BoxingScene.com.

If the fight gets wrapped up, it would fall in place with the featherweight showdown between Vasyl Lomachenko and Gary Russell Jr., who battle for the vacant WBO featherweight title.

Showtime would televise both fights as part of a tripleheader. Former three division champion Abner Mares is expected to occupy the third slot of Showtime's triple.

No interim belt for this one?

[QUOTE=Pigeons;14479068]Guerrero has won belts at 126 and 130. That would make him a 2 weight world champ. He has interim belts at 135 and 147. Play again.[/QUOTE] Guerrero's won more Interim (147, 2 at LW) than full (126, 130) belts…
