(Photo Credit: Suzanne Teresa/Premier Boxing Champions) Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KOs) had to get up off the deck in the 4th round to rally to beat Aaron Martinez (19-4-1, 4 KOs) by a controversial 10 round split decision at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Guerrero dropped hard in the 4th round after getting nailed by four hard head shots from Martinez.
To Guerrero’s credit, he got back to his feet and was able to rally to win the fight by dominated four of the last five rounds. Guerrero appeared to lose the 7th, as well as rounds 1 through 5, but the judges felt that he did enough to get the win. The scores were 97-92, 95-94 for Guerrero, and 95-94 for Martinez. I had Martinez winning the fight. Guerrero looked terrible out there, and I don’t think he should have been given the decision. Continue reading
