Andre Berto and Robert Guerrero officially announced their November 24 fight on HBO today.
"I'm happy to be back and to be fighting someone as talented as Robert Guerrero. It's a great challenge for me to face one of the best coming off of my layoff. I know I have the ability to be the best in my division and in the sport, and proving that to everyone starts with this fight."
"I am looking forward to this opportunity and it will be a nice way to spend the holiday weekend doing what I love to do which is to fight. Berto has proven himself over the years as one of the best, but I am confident that I will come out on top and close out 2012 with a big win. I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and a win over Berto over Thanksgiving weekend will be one more thing to add to that list."

"There are a lot of fighters saying they are the best, but not everyone is willing to prove it in the ring. Andre Berto and Robert Guerrero put on a show every time they step through the ropes and I'm excited that they'll be putting on a show against each other on November 24. On Thanksgiving weekend, I'll be giving thanks that we have a great fight between two of the best young fighters in the world and I know they'll be giving everything they have to walk out of that ring victorious."
Kery Davis, HBO Sports
"Fight fans can add to the enjoyment of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with this action-packed World Championship Boxing tripleheader. Andre Berto and Robert Guerrero will be primed for the main event showdown and we think boxing fans are in for a real treat."
