guerrero444688888By Dan Ambrose: Robert
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) will be looking to get a good victory on June 6th when he faces Aaron Martinez (19-3-1, 4 KOs) in a 10 round bout in a must win fight for the 32-year-old Guerrero on NBC on Premier Boxing Champions at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California, USA.

Things haven’t been going too well for Guerrero in his last three fights. He’s lost two out of his last three fights, and the one fight he did win against Yoshihiro Kamegai proved to be a grueling affair with Guerrero taking a lot of punishment in the process of winning a 12 round decision last year in June.

guerrero33111By Dan Ambrose: The Premier Boxing Champions card brought in huge ratings last Saturday night on NBC. The card, which was headlined by the bout between WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs) and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs), peaked at 4.2 million viewers, making it the most watched fight broadcast since 1998 when Oscar De La Hoya’s Fight New broadcast on Fox brought in 5.9 million viewers.

The fact that the Thurman-Guerrero card was able to do so well is obviously a great sign for boxing, because it honestly wasn’t that big of a card. None of the three fights on the Premier Boxing Champions card that night were 50-50 propositions.

PBC on NBC premiere a success with Thurman-Guerrero toe-to-toe

thurman331211By Bill Christian Gabay: It did not start off very well. NBC producers were probably getting a bit anxious what with John Molina Jr. (27-6, 22 KOs) deciding to be Adrien Broner’s (30-1, 22 KOs) punching bag for 12 rounds in their fight last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fans at ringside could be seen on TV looking at their cellphones, talking to their companions or looking other directions away from the ring.

But that bout did go as expected. Molina lost his last 2 fights and was no match for the faster, craftier and more skillful Broner.

Guerrero, 31, thinks he could do things differently in the rematch to improve upon the way he fought last night, starting with using his jab more. Guerrero believes he made a mistake by abandoning his jab early on in the fight and just plodding into Thurman’s shots.

Thurman’s WBA title not mentioned in introduction last night

thurman44By Allan Fox: If you watched last night’s fight between WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs) and Roberto Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) on NBC, it was the fact that Thurman’s WBA title wasn’t mentioned at all when he was introduced before the fight.

The announcer only gave Thurman’s name and his ring record as he was walking out to the ring. The fight definitely had Thurman’s WBA title on the line. This has some boxing fans speculating whether the world titles are going to be de-emphasized in Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions series.
