Surprisingly, veteran professional boxer from Gilroy, California, Robert Guererro is anxious about his next fight. 

"I can't wait to show the world and everybody watching on NBC what I'm all about,” said Guerrero during his recent media work out:”March 7 can't come soon enough. I'm ready to go!" March 7th, 2015 is the date set for former multi division champion from Northern California to face highly touted and undefeated Keith Thurman from Florida. 

Mecca of boxing, MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will host a historic twelve rounds contest for the vacant world WBA welterweight championship. Why is it historic? Because for the first time in a long time the professional boxing match will be televised live on a regular TV. NBC will begin its telecast at 5:30 Pacific time. It’s a completely new idea in the world of sweet science created by boxing’s most powerful power-broker, Al Haymon and his brain child – Premiere Boxing Champions. Boxing world is anxiously waiting for premier show on March 7th. 
"I'm very happy that the fight is right around the corner,” continued Guerrero, 31:” I'm looking forward to giving fans a great night in boxing. A lot of big shots are going to be thrown from my end.” His adversary, twenty six year old Keith Thurman with a record of 24 wins, no loses and 21 knock outs is guaranteed to return fire and big shots. 
"I know Keith Thurman is training hard and so am I,” continued Guerrero (38-2-1,18KO’S):” This fight is going to be a war and I'm looking forward to it.” 

Much has been made out of pound for pound king’s Floyd Mayweather successfully jumping weight divisions all the way from super featherweight to light middleweight, even more about ring great, Manny Pacquiao being eight division world champion. Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero is quietly made a transition from featherweight to a full- fledged welterweight. Winning his first title as a featherweight today Guererro looks like a big, strong welterweight. Not only does he look it he is strong and a very rough customer. Just ask his last opponent, another big and strong welterweight from Japan, Yoshihiro Kamegai. 

Even Floyd Mayweather Jr. when facing Guererro opted not to engage, but instead out boxed Robert to a victory. At the age of 31 Robert Guererro is a big strong fighter seemingly still at his physical prime with a lot of big fight experience. So why is he a five to one underdog in a contest with relatively inexperienced but undefeated Keith Thurman? That is the question best left for the odds makers. 
"Training camp is wrapping up and my body feels great,” said Guererro prior to his scheduled trip to Las Vegas:” This is one of the best camps I've had in a very long time and the fans can count on me being at peak performance on fight night.” 

March 7th fight night will also feature a junior welterweight showdown between Adrien Broner and John Molina. Both fight promise to deliver fireworks.
