SALISBURY -- Wearing a three-piece, chocolate-brown, pinstripe suit, Fernando Guerrero looked relaxed as he sat back in his chair and smiled during a Thursday news conference at the Brew River Restaurant & Bar. Guerrero had good reason to grin, for his manager, Hal Chernoff, announced that the southpaw will return to Salisbury for his next fight. Guerrero will enter the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center ring Feb. 18 to defend his North American Boxing Organization middleweight belt against Saul Roman in the main event of ESPN's "Friday Night Fights," which will be broadcast in 3-D for the first time.

"I don't worry about who the bloggers think is the best opponent...I really don't care [what] the writers say or even what the hardcore boxing followers say when it comes to this. I know we need to pick the opponent who is the most familiar to the casual sports fan, the casual boxing fan who cannot name all the fighters" -

And it was not a left hook as so many have incorrectly reported. Martinez is a southpaw and does not throw a left hook. He throws a left cross. Besides, it was an overhand left, but we digress.

Boxers don't pull any punches and neither should those of us who train and write about these fearless warriors. Whether a championship is at stake or not, one- sided bouts in which a devastating puncher is at work must be halted, if not by the corner, then by the referee or doctor. Boxers must be protected from their bravery. The punishment that Briggs suffered on Saturday was so egregious and unnecessary that it was a blow to the gut to watch. It was enough to make a person feel guilty about being involved in the sport.

Escalante Likely to fight Ponce de Leon on undercard of Mosley-Mora El Paso featherweight contender Antonio Escalante is headed for a showdown with Daniel Ponce de Leon in arguably his biggest fight of his career. Escalante (24-2, 15 knockouts) has a verbal agreement to fight Ponce de Leon (39-2, 32 Ko's) on Sept. 18 in Los Angeles on an HBO pay-per-view card headlined by a junior middleweight clash between Shane Mosley and Sergio Mora. The fight card will be held at the Staples Center. Escalante's manager, Lester Bedford said he's just waiting for the contracts on the fight. "It'll be a great test for Antonio," he said. "It's a type of risk we have to take."

Well it’s one of those fights that I hope never happens because Pacquiao doesn’t need Mayweather in his life. It’ll be one of those life changing experiences for Pacquiao, especially. For instance, I didn’t have to fight Muhammad Ali. I really didn’t have to take that fight. I took the fight and it turned into more than just a boxing match. It became a political statement, one way and the other, and today we’re great friends but if I had to do it over again, because of all the other sprinkling on the pies, I never would have taken part in such a fight. I think Pacquiao had a nice name. Mayweather started to slander him, say things like he was taking drugs. When you start running into people like that, it’s best that you stay away from them. It’s not even necessary to even have them in your life. But if the fight does take place, I think that Pacquiao wins because he’s got the momentum, he has a real trainer, and he’s willing to take the fight. He’d probably beat Mayweather, probably. Not to say Mayweather isn’t a wonderful fighter. He is the best fighter I’ve ever seen in my life, but he can’t beat Pacquiao because there is something else going on in that fight business. Not the X’s and the O’s, but there’s something else. -George Foreman
