Guerrero vs Peralta: Peralta Might Be a Taxi Driver, But He’s No Hack

Robert Guerrero - Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (33-5-1, 18KO) was expected to win, and look good doing it.  His opponent David Emanuel Peralta sported a decent record (26-2-1,14KO), but all his fights were in Argentina against weaker opposition.  Guerrero, a former world champion, fought the likes of Floyd jr., Danny Garcia, and Keith Thurman.  Of course, he lost to each of those men, but you're missing the point.  Just being in the ring with those guys is supposed to mean something.
