To Where Has the Ghost Disappeared?


It’s been nearly a year since Robert Guerrero has been inside the ring. Last May, he was decisively beaten by Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. He sat out the remainder of 2013 and then filed suit against Golden Boy Promotions, which has promoted him since 2009. Guerrero has yet to appear in 2014 and has nothing on the horizon. Yes, “The Ghost” has indeed disappeared.

Richard Schaefer, Golden Boy Promotions CEO, told Maxboxing, “Actually I’m going to be talking to Al [Haymon] to see what we can do to get Robert into the ring and I’m going to the office all of next week - assuming that I still have my keys - I will attempt to see if we can get Robert back into the ring as soon as possible.” When asked if just how protracted this conflict has been has surprised him, Schaefer answered, “These kinds of issues are not resolved overnight. It takes time because both sides have to give both sides of the story.”

Guerrero recently became the latest addition to the ever-expanding roster of Haymon clients. He is now 31 years old and valuable time during his physical prime is being wasted on the sidelines.

“We should find a way to get this resolved and get Robert back into the ring. Robert is a terrific fighter. I respect him and if he and his team felt that they have issues and they went through this, who am I to second-guess it? And I think whatever played out, played out. I have no hard feelings whatsoever. I’ve always liked Robert. I’ve always felt - and still feel I do - have a very special relationship with Robert,” said Schaefer.

Attempts to reach Guerrero’s manager, Luis DeCubas Jr. were unsuccessful.
