Robert Guerrero, Jesus Cuellar Get TKO Wins in Carson

By Michael Rosenthal

CARSON, California – Former two-division champion Robert Guerrero, 35, stopped Hevinson Herrera after five rounds on the undercard of the Shawn Porter-Yordenis Ugas card Saturday at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Guerrero stalked Herrera from the opening bell, controlling the fight and landing hard punches periodically. In the fifth round, a big left sent Herrera sprawling to the canvas but he was able to get up and survive the round.

That was that, however. Herrera didn’t come out for the start of the sixth round and the fight was stopped.
