Victor Ortiz-Robert Guerrero a Possibility, Says Schaefer

By Lem Satterfield

Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, told that newly-crowned southpaw WBO and WBC interim lightweight king, Robert Guerrero, has said that he would fight anyone.

The 28-year-old Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 knockouts) is coming off of an April 9, victory over Australia's hard-punching Michael Katsidis (27-4, 22 KOs) that earned Guerrero his fourth, and, fifth career title belts over his third weight class.

"The fact is, Robert Guerrero is ready for anyone. And when I say anyone, you might have seen some of his comments recently. Robert is a strong, big guy whose body has been growing tremendously over the past 12 months," Schaefer.

"Robert Guerrero has said that he willing ready and able to take on anyone at 147 [welterweight] as well," said Schaefer. "So, we will see what's going to happen."

Asked if Guerrero would fight newly crowned WBC welterweight titlist Victor Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KOs), who is coming off of an April 16 unanimous decision that dethroned Andre Berto (27-1, 21 KOs), Schaefer responded in an e-mail: "ANYONE."

Schaefer said that among those being considered as a possible rival to Guerrero as early as July 30 is 34-year-old, three-time world champion, Erik Morales (51-7, 35 KOs), of Tijuana, Mex., who is coming off of an April 9 majority decision loss to former WBA interim junior welterweight titlist Marcos Rene Maidana (30-2, 27 KOs).

"That's one which I think would be very intriguing as well and which would be a very good," said Schaefer. "A big fight for Erik Morales would be involving Robert Guerrero. I think that that would be a terrific fight."

A rematch against Maidana and a bout with Gurrero are among those being offered to Morales, in addition to a potential fourth bout against Mexico City's 37-year-old, five-time, three-division champion, Marco Antonio Barrera  (67-7, 44 KOs).

Morales lost two out of three fights to Barrera during a trilogy that reached a legendary status which, for Mexicans, rivals the one between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

ortiz needs to fight natural WWs, not smaller guys...aydin/ortiz should happen. for guerrero, i think he should move up to 140 and fight khan or maidana, he has the skills to put up a good fight, and it's safer for…

why should he give maidana get a rematch now...ortiz asked for a rematch after the lost and maidana said forget him, let him wait in line for ortiz now...just have him fight his mandatory or any other big names
