“This is my big opportunity to show the world that I belong with the elite fighters in boxing,” Guerrero said. “Everyone says it can’t be done, but I’m going to show the world skipping super lightweight and going straight to welterweight with no tune up to challenge the number one contender and beating Selcuk Aydin can be done!

“I’m here to face the toughest challenges and put myself in a position to get mega-fights. It’s not going to be easy beating a full-fledged welterweight [so] that’s why my team and I will get the proper training, sparring and diet when [at] camp. The mountains of Tahoe are set at high elevations which will make for a great training camp.

“I look forward to making history for the Bay Area and all my fans across the world.”

Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada of the United States. At a surface elevation of 6,225 ft (1,897 m), it is located along the border between California and Nevada, west of Carson City. This will be Robert’s first time training in the Tahoe area and he looks forward to having a tremendous camp.

Manager Bob Santos said: “Team Guerrero would like to thank Showtime and Golden Boy for putting this event on at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. When you speak of a fighter who has competed in six different weight classes from 122 to 147 as Guerrero is doing, it’s something special. I believe the only other active fighters that have done it are Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. Guerrero is a five-time world champion in three divisions and has all the makings of superstar.”

    I agree with every one of your predictions with the eeoxpticn of number 2.I believe Cotto will win the 2nd time around, forcing a rubber match, due to his choice in trainers.Steward knows what it takes to beat Margarito and he will train Cotto to be able to endure longer into the fight as well as not being subjective to Margarito uppercuts, which Manny already showed in the Foreman fight.Cotto will no longer slump his body forward, leaving him open for uppercuts the way he was doing prior to hiring Steward.Plus, I think Cotto has a secret vendetta out for Margarito now and will want to hurt him in the ring. That alone will provide a lot of motivation for Miguel to train hard and do whatever it takes to win that fight.It should be another thriller though! 0
