LOS ANGELES - The wait is finally over.

An inspiring young man in and out of the ring, Gilroy, California's Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KO's) has captivated the boxing world ever since his professional debut in 2001, and he is far from finished. In fact, it seems that Guerrero sets the bar higher for himself with each fight, always passing each progressively more difficult test with flying colors. Already a World Champion at 126, 130 and 135 pounds, the 28-year-old Guerrero's list of conquests includes Joel "Cepillio" Casamayor, Jason Litzau, Vicente Escobedo and Michael Katsidis "The Great." The 29-year-old southpaw sharpshooter, who is becoming as well known for his charity work outside of the ring as he is for his work inside the ring, will close in on a spot at the top of the pound-for-pound list should he turn back his toughest opponent to date in the hard-hitting brawler Aydin.

Known to his fans around the world as "Mini Tyson" because of his thunderous punching power, 28-year old WBC Silver welterweight titleholder and Trabzon, Turkey native Selcuk Aydin (23-0, 17 KO's) has also earned that moniker with a ferocious style that has made him one of the most popular fighters in his adopted home country of Germany. Aydin turned professional in 2006 and has cut a swath through the welterweight division, winning all 23 of his fights and knocking out 17 opponents in Mike Tyson-style...in three rounds or less. Among his list of vanquished foes are contenders Said Ouali, Jackson Bonsu and Ionut Dan Ion, but a title capturing win over Guerrero would be his biggest to date, and Aydin is focused on the task at hand, even giving himself a new nickname: "The Ghostbuster."

[QUOTE=commodus;12071886]in his entire career he has NEVER been close to being the best in either weight class he has competed in[/QUOTE] When did that qualify a guy as being trash? Being a top 10 boxer is a pretty good accomplishment.…
