November 21, 2012 – At a time when family and friends are gathering together for this year’s Thanksgiving holiday celebration, Four-Division and Six-Time World Champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero is preparing for the biggest fight of his career when he faces former two-time world champion Andre Berto. The bout takes place this Saturday, November 24 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif., and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing®.
Guerrero is a man who is no stranger to dealing with adversity and this Thanksgiving he reflects on his life and all that he is thankful for.
After Robert’s wife Casey was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2007, Guerrero had to take on the difficult challenge of aiding her, while miraculously fighting at the elite level. After finding a bone marrow match half way around the world, Casey is now cancer free, and the two are taking care of their children, Savannah Rose and Robert Jr.
“I’m really thankful to all of the fans that have been by my side throughout my career, especially when my wife was dealing with cancer,” Guerrero said. “My wife is cancer free now and I’m truly grateful for the miracle that God has provided for our family when we found a donor in Katharina Zech. My wife is the real fighter in the family and I’m thankful she’s with me today.”
Entering his most challenging fight to date, Guerrero is very appreciative for the golden opportunity that lies ahead of him when he faces Berto and puts his WBC interim welterweight championship on the line.
“I’m preparing for the biggest fight of my career and I want to thank my managers Bob Santos and Luis DeCubas Jr., my father and trainer Ruben Guerrero Sr., and the rest of my team, as well as my promoter Golden Boy and HBO for giving me this opportunity,” Guerrero said. “I really want to thank God for putting good people around me that I can trust. My team is incredible, they work hard to get their job done and now we are in the biggest fight of our lives. Words can’t describe how much I appreciate their efforts. My WBC title is at stake and I’m going to leave everything in the ring.
“Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and their families. May the good Lord Jesus Christ bless you all with happiness!”

Ndyambo vs. Ndabayani Rubber Match For WBF Title
South African Women’s Light Welterweight Champion Nomadhitini Ndyambo, 3-1 (1) will fight local nemesis Kholoso Ndabayani, 3-1 (2), for the third time on November 25.
This time the vacant World Boxing Federation Intercontinental title will be on the line.
The pair first fought this past May, with Ndabayani winning by fifth round technical knockout to retain the South African national title after a back-and-forth battle.
Ndyambo quickly got her revenge in late June, when she used all her boxing skills to win a unanimous decision and the S.A. championship, and now they will clash in what will be the first major title fight for both.
The winner of this heated rivalry will not only get bragging rights, but also move a step closer to a shot at the WBF World title.
The fight will take place in East London, and will be promoted by KK Promotions.
