GILROY, CA - After a thrilling, and often action-packed career Robert Guerrero (33-6-1, 18 KOs) has announced his retirement from the sport of boxing. Guerrero devoted sixteen years to the sweet science, often finding himself in hard fought, fan pleasing wars against some of the best in the sport.
His announcement comes on the heels of his knockout loss (The first of his career) to rising undefeated welterweight and former lightweight champion Omar Figueroa who dropped Guerrero five times en route to the stoppage. Guerrero has lost five of his past seven fights leaving many ringside observers to question whether or not it was time for him to hang the gloves up for good.
Guerrero won multiple world titles in four weight divisions most notably at featherweight and junior lightweight, as well as interim belts at lightweight and welterweight and will be remembered as a guy who never ducked a challenge and gave his all for the fans.
