LAS VEGAS, NV (March 11, 2015) – A few days after his inspiring effort against WBA Welterweight Champion, Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs), Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero is already looking forward to his next fight. Guerrero is today’s version of a modern day gladiator who leaves everything in the ring. His never die fighting style is what fans of all ages are thriving to see. Sports fans around the world witnessed a “Fight of the Year” candidate when Guerrero and Thurman left everything in the ring. Guerrero speaks on his future.
“Although Thurman and I went to war, my body is recovering well,” said Robert Guerrero. “As crazy as it sounds, I’m ready to get back to work and start training. I’m hoping I can get back in the ring by the summer and finish off strong by the end of the year. If I can get two more fights in this year, I’ll be happy. I know the fans are looking forward to my next fight, and I’m ready to bring them another exciting night of action.”
Bob Santos who co-manages Guerrero stated, “After looking at the fight, I realized Guerrero was fighting a super-middleweight on fight night, which makes his fight with Thurman even more unbelievable. Guerrero who came up from 122 lbs. went the distance with an undefeated champion who fought most of his career at 154 pounds, that’s incredible. The fans got to see a true warrior in Guerrero last Saturday, and will get to see him again in the near future.”
Belfast boxers Tommy ‘The Tiger’ Tolan and Philip Townley are set to go toe to toe with each other, for the vacant Irish International Professional Middleweight title, at the Devenish Complex in Belfast this coming Saturday, March 14th.
The transformation of Tolan’s career over the past year has been astonishing, following a string of losses going back to 2011 his career began to turn around late in 2014, when he beat Matt Scriven in Leeds.
In February this year Tolan returned to Leeds to secure another excellent win, this time over Slovakia’s Rastislav Frano, who at that time was coming of two big wins himself.
Speaking from his home earlier Tolan said.
“I’m really looking forward to Saturday, It’s going to be a great night.
It’s been two years since I last fought here in Belfast so I’m really up for fighting in front of a home crowd again and hopefully I’ll bring home the belt to really celebrate St Patrick’s Day in style.”
Supporting the all Belfast headline bout sees another local lad Eamonn Magee Jnr, the son of the former Commonwealth and World Boxing Union World Champion of the same name, making his second pro outing against Slovakia’s Dinars Skripkins.
Magee comes into the fight high in confidence, following his sensational second round stoppage win over Zoltan Horvath on his debut back in June.
In taking that victory, Magee Jnr proved to be a proper ‘chip of the old block’, the youngster boxed beautifully throughout, but more importantly finished off his more experienced opponent with a world class left hook, in much of a similar manner as his famous father had done on so many occasions during his illustrious career.
Former amateur star Matthew Fitzsimmons, will be making his pro debut on the show, against Slovakian Aleksandrs Birkenbergs.
Fitzsimmons had a stellar amateur career, winning forty seven of his fifty one outings, and the smart money is on the youngster being yet another star of the future to emerge from the famous All Saints club.
In addition to the bouts above, there will further bouts featuring local fighters.

During the press conference, Dulorme was emphatic in his fight dedication to the Latino community by mentioning, “On April 18, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Colombia and all the Latinos around the world will have a new champion”, stated a confident Dulorme.
In response, Terence Crawford’s co-manager and trainer, Brian McIntyre commented, “The Mexicans, the Puerto Ricans, the Colombians, the Dominicans, they can’t help you fight, bro.

He is a winner in everything he does in life. May the best man win.”
“I consider the comments of this gentleman Brian McIntyre very disrespectful toward the Latinos and to myself. I dedicate this fight to all the Latinos, because I’m Latino, and I’m proud of it. In the ring, it’s only Crawford, the referee and I, but the support of the Latinos will be there as well and cannot be ignored”, said Thomas Dulorme, who is stationed at an undisclosed location in Puerto Rico for the biggest fight of his career.
“Day in and day out I represent Latinos around the world. In the great nation of the United States, you must take advantage of every opportunity. On April 18, I will work hard to become a world champion in Texas, and bring glory to my people”, concluded Thomas Dulorme.
