Exciting middleweight prospect Fernando Guerrero will return to action on the December 18 edition of Shobox, as he travels to Minnesota to take on Baltimore's Jessie Nicklow.
You might be wondering why two Maryland fighters are headed to Hinckley, Minnesota, and well, me too. I got nothin'. Money, I suspect.
Guerrero (16-0, 13 KO) is one of Bad Left Hook's favorite prospects, and has emerged as a must-watch young fighter over the last couple of years. He's been featured on TV several times, and has never failed to impress. His last bout with Ossie Duran was the best win of his career, and easily the toughest, too. Guerrero won a 10-round majority decision against the tough veteran. Frankly, Nicklow (19-1-2, 7 KO) is a bit of a step back, but perhaps a necessary step back at this juncture.
Shawn Porter (11-0, 9 KO) will also be fighting on the show. Porter just fought on Saturday, beating Jerome Ellis (RTD-4). Unbeaten young welterweights Said El Harrak (8-0, 3 KO) and Lanard Lane (9-0, 6 KO) will meet on the card, as well.
