Yoshihiro Kamegai - (Picture credit: Hogan Photos) Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) will be looking to take Yoshihiro Kamegai’s scalp quickly and painlessly this Saturday night at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California, USA. Guerrero believes that a big win over the KO artist Kamegai (24-1-1, 21 KO’s) could put him back on the path for a second fight against WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Guerrero believes that a big win over the KO artist Kamegai (24-1-1, 21 KO’s) could put him back on the path for a second fight against WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Guerrero feels that the 37-year-old Mayweather has run out of opponents in the welterweight division, and he needs someone like him to give him a name for him to fight.

Besides that, Guerrero says he’s improved since his loss to Mayweather last year in May. He says that his conditioning is better now, and that he’s fighting smarter.
