SAN JOSE – Doors have been closed in front of Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero as he has chased down boxing supremacy. He has found ways to fight through all of them. Opportunity knocked Saturday night and Guerrero powerfully paraded is way right through one more obstacle, coming out on the other side the WBC Interim Welterweight world champion.
Selcuk “Mini Tyson” Aydin offered a handshake to Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero as the two came face to face for the first time at a news conference Wednesday at HP Pavilion, the site of the duo's world championship bout that is just three days away.
As the anticipation grows, it remains to be seen who will have the final say when Gilroy native and five-time world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and WBC welterweight Silver champion Selcuk “Mini Tyson” Aydin square off Saturday for the Interim WBC welterweight championship of the world at HP Pavilion.
Throughout Robert Guerrero's boxing career, the Gilroy native has had a strong supporting cast to buffer bad times and celebrate the good.
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero closed Thursday’s news conference at HP Pavilion with a joke as he looked toward a flat screen displaying a pixelated Selcuk Aydin, who joined the official announcement of the pair’s July 28 World Boxing Council Interim Welterweight World Championship bout via Skype from Germany.
