Finally, Robert ‘The Ghost’ Guerrero, 22-1-1 with 15 KOs looked extremely impressive in scoring a vicious eighth round knockout over Jason Litzau, 23-2 with 19 KOs in Lemoor, California. After the fight Guerrero expressed his desire to next fight the winner of tonight’s Israel Vazquez – Rafael Marquez rubber match.

“There are a lot of big fights out there for me. If the winner of Vazquez – Marquez wants to move up, I would fight either of them. I’m ready to fight now.”
