In an intriguing welterweight bout from San Jose, Robert Guerrero takes on unbeaten contender Selcuk Aydin. It’s a nice contrast of styles in what should be a competitive match. The Germany-based Turk Aydin has been the WBC number-one welterweight for a while and finally gets his chance against two-division champion Guerrero. From nearby Gilroy, Guerrero will be the robust crowd favorite.

Guerrero is a fine fighter. Unfortunately, various issues beyond his control have kept him from developing. He’s been a potential star for years now, without really ever getting the chance to take it to the next level.
By the time he gets in the ring with Aydin, he will have had one fight in 20 months. With his wife’s health issues thankfully subsided...
