By Ronnie Nathanielsz
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero who has in the past called out Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao moved up two divisions to welterweight and captured the vacant WBCInterim title with a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Selcuk “Mini Tyson” Aydin at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
Guerrero, a former three-division world champion used his speed to advantage against the Turkish fighter and was far more aggressive before a cheering hometown crowd.
While the win was impressive Guerrero hardly displayed any recognizable punching power at 147 pounds while Aydin was clearly the stronger puncher and caight Guerrero with some solid blows in the later rounds.
However, Aydin’s effort was too little too late and all three judges had Guerrero who now moves up to 29-1-1 with 18 knockouts, a comfortable winner.
Max DeLuca and Mark Green scored the fight for Guerrero 116-112 while Michael Tate had Guerrero the winner 117-111.

For the fourth roubd the partials were 39-37, 40-36 and 40-36 for the Mexican, who handled the fight with his educated left hand suffered in a battle for Japanese who was bleeding profusely but did not give up, despite the continued support of the fans Sosa could not set their strategy, as the Japanese turned to iron jaw, even when highly beaten, never lowered his arms, had to get the smart decision of the referee Jose Guadalupe Garcia, who determined the end of combat safeguarding the integrity of the brave Japanese, he planned to leave the ninth round after partial scores announced after the eighth in 79.37, 80-72 and 80-72.Source: suljos.com/wbcVersEng/index.php
