Robert Guerrero the mandatory challenger for Mayweather Jr

September 24, 2012 – Golden Boy Promotions, multiple division world champion, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, has been invited by World Boxing Council (WBC) President Jose Sulaiman and his son Mauricio, to fly out to Mexico City and receive his WBC Championship belt.

Last month, Guerrero earned the WBC interim welterweight title when he moved up two weight classes and defeated former undefeated No. 1 contender Selcuk Aydin (23-1, 17 KOs), making him the mandatory challenger to face pound for pound king, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“It’s a great honor to be present in Mexico City with the Sulaiman family and receive my hard earned WBC Championship belt,” said Guerrero. “I’ve always envisioned myself becoming the WBC champion and I plan to represent the WBC and Golden Boy Promotions with pride.”

The Ghost will meet with the Sulaiman’s tomorrow Tuesday, September 25, 2012 in Mexico City to officially receive his belt.
