Guerrero hoping for rematch with Garcia
On Saturday night, Robert Guerrero will be back in action to take on David Emanuel Peralta at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., as the main event of the Premier Boxing Champions card on Spike.
Guerrero (33-4-1, 18 KOs) lost a unanimous decision to welterweight titlist Danny Garcia in January, but is eager to earn another crack at a title. However, Garcia is concentrating on improving his game and is focused on getting past Peralta first.
“Peralta is a tall guy but I’m used to it. [Yoshihiro] Kamegai was bigger than I thought he’d be, but I handled it. I have to feel him out and go from there,” said Guerrero from his training camp this week.
“I’m going to try and execute my game plan. We want to put pressure on him. I’ve had really good sparring for this and I’m ready to go.”
“I’ve worked on a lot of things during camp. I’m working on staying more on my toes and breaking some of the bad habits I’ve had. I like to just go forward but there is a lot more to my game. I have to work behind my jab and I think I’ll have success,” added Guerrero.
“I’m ready for a world title shot now. I want the Danny Garcia rematch. I feel like I won the fight. He had some flashy shots but he didn’t want to fight. It is what it is and it motivates me to get back to that position.”
