Schaefer: Robert Guerrero Turned Down Keith Thurman

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has advised BoxingScene.com that Robert Guerrero (31-2, 18KOs) has turned down a proposed fight with undefeated WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (21-0, 19KOs). Schaefer was hoping to make that fight for a date in November. However, one fighter who is very interested in facing Thurman is Jesus Soto Karass (28-8-3, 18KOs).

"Guerrero turned down the fight," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com. "Soto Karass is another guy who will fight anyone. Soto Karass would love to fight Keith Thurman and Keith Thurman would love to fight Soto Karass. That's another fight where you know it's going to be great."

[QUOTE=TLC8;13681432]Guerrero doesn't need that fight with Thurman. Thurman has beaten no real top fighters. It's all upside for Thurman fight if he got Guerrero. There's a ton of risk and nothing gained for Guerrero fighting Thurman. Guerrero should rest up…

[QUOTE=MC Hammer;13683285]Now this is a duck. Here we have Thurman, an undefeated on fire prospect, who'll take any challenge in sight, and Guerrero needing to get back on his feet, yet he's avoiding him. At the same time Guerrero has…
