“I want to get back in there with the top guys. All the fights are there. I have to get back in that position. I have to get them to stand toe-to-toe with me. I don’t need to prove anything to myself. I know I can fight. I come in and work hard every day. I have to go and prove it to the fans. The fans are what makes us. I have to prove it to everybody watching that I’m there at the top level.” So says Robert Guerrero (“The Ghost”) as he looks forward to getting back into the ring!

Robert Guerrero is a champion professional boxer. He is a two-time IBF featherweight champion and has been an interim WBC welterweight champion, an IBF Super Featherweight world champion, and an interim WBA and WBO lightweight champion.

But this story is as much about Casey, Robert’s wife, as it is about him. Robert Guerrero vacated the IBF Super Featherweight title to be with his bride while she battled leukemia.
