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.”
