Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero is adapting well and soaking up the knowledge being taught to him at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card gym as he prepares for his highly anticipated IBF championship fight against Spend Abazi from Denmark. This will be the first time “The Ghost” has had to battle outside of his native USA soil, and with his back against the wall, Guerrero said, “I’m excited about fighting overseas. I know it’s going to be tough to get a decision in his homeland, so my plans are to take him out.”
Having been in camp with new trainer Freddie Roach the last three weeks, Robert mentioned, “I’m learning a lot with Freddie and the transition has been a blessing. Training at the Wild Card gym everyday is an incredible feeling; it’s a championship environment and you can feel it in the air. I can’t wait mix it up with Abazi.”
This bout is scheduled for February 23, and will be held at the Falconer Center, in Copenhagen, Denmark. With a huge European television audience tuning in, negotiations are still being worked out to show the fight on the Internet in the United States. The winner of this fight will become the new IBF featherweight champion of the world. Stay tuned, as Team Guerrero will keep you updated on all activity surrounding this bout. God bless to all.
