Last night at the Tachi Indian Casino, Robert Guerrero and Gamaliel Diaz were in an intense battle that was decided by one point in a very close split decision. “The Ghost” (16-1-1) tasted defeat for the first time in his young career, but vows to be back in early 2006.
“There is no doubt in my mind that I’m one of the best fighters in the featherweight division. I felt I did enough to win the fight, but the judges didn’t see it that way. I take my hat off to Diaz. He was a very tough fighter. My team and I will regroup and look at what needs to be addressed. My faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is stronger than ever and I believe he will provide for me all that I need to be a world champion. I’m only 22 and believe me, I’ll be back.”
