Selcuk Aydin: There is No Excuse, I Lost The Fight

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Selcuk Aydin is making no excuses about his twelve round unanimous decision loss to Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero. Before Guerrero's hometown crowd at HP Pavilion, Aydin (23-1, 17 KO’s) got outboxed in the first half of the fight but came back strong in the later rounds, with Guerrero (30-1-1, 18 KO’s) getting tired. The judges saw it 117-11 and 116-112 (twice). 

"The judges were not my problem. I was the problem," Aydin said through an interpreter. "I couldn't do what I wanted to do. After the fourth round, something happened. It was like I was seeing double. But there's no excuse. I lost the fight."

Guerrero would admit that Aaydin hit hard, but not hard enough.

"He hit hard," Guerrero said. "He never hurt me anytime. He's got some punching power. He's one of the hardest punching guys in the division. He can throw a bomb and he landed some bombs on me. I just shrugged them off and kept going."

Aydin was clearly angry with himself after the fight. The frustration in his work was evident, just couldnt get his shots off. He blamed having to wait 3 years and being a different fighter now to what he used to…

Aydin is the man. Hope to see him bounce back.

It's surprising that a fighter who loses a competitive fight doesn't claim that he won. Very refreshing. Aydin vs Berto or Aydin vs Maidana, make it happen!

[QUOTE=TheGunslinger;12382364]I'm going to repeat what previous posters have said Aydin is more than welcome back on my TV screen.[/QUOTE] I'd watch Aydin again and be happy to do it. Hopefully he gets more TV time in the US.
