  • Oh man! I’ve sparred Guerrero when i was stationed in Corpus Christi in 2001. Good luck to him in his farewell fight!

  • Holy cow! Has Ron Guerrero been fighting this whole time? He was a fixture in the heavyweight scene in the the early 2000’s as an opponent for top fighters, occasionally pulling off an upset. Guys like Guerrero are the unsung heroes of the sport by willing to fill in as last minute replacements, willing to fight anybody, anywhere. I’m sure sure he has bailed out many a promoter over the years and deserves to be compensated and recognized.
