Two-Time IBF world champion, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero is set to battle Olympic silver medalist and current #1 contender Rocky Juarez September 15 2007 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as the co-feature to Juan Manual Marquez vs Jorge Barrios, televised live to millions tuning in on HBO PPV.
The card labeled "Fireworks" was announced today by Oscar De La Hoya and Goldenboy promotions, solidifying the scheduled 12 round title defense that is bestowed upon "The Ghost".
Guerrero, who traveled overseas and recaptured his world title when he stopped Spend Abazi in Denmark last February, mentioned, "I want to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ, my team along with HBO and Goldenboy promotions, for putting this fight together. September 15th is a great day for Mexican fighters to showcase their skills, and I'm going to bring my "A" game come fight night. I believe this is my time to show the world what a true champion I am and give the fans what they deserve."
