Fernando Guerrero headlines another "Future Champions" online PPV

New, 2 comments

One of Bad Left Hook's favorite prospects, middleweight Fernando Guerrero of Salisbury, Maryland, will headline another internet pay-per-view this Saturday night from Tunica, Mississippi. In June, Guerrero stopped Brian Norman in the second round in the main event of "Boxing's Future Champions," broadcast on Prize Fight TV. The same company will offer "Boxing's Future Champions II" for $4.99 this weekend.

Guerrero (14-0, 12 KO) will face Chris Archer (11-7, 7 KO) in what has to be classed as a step down in competition after the fights with Norman and Gabriel Rosado in his last two. Archer has lost six of his last eight and has fought anywhere from 160 to 175, with his last two bouts at light heavyweight.

Guerrero isn't taking Archer lightly, though.

"At this stage of my career, everything has been perfect, and my performances prove that by me showing improvement each fight, from the first until my last. I'm still learning, though. I fight everybody as if they're a champion, never taking an opponent lightly. I respect all of my opponents, but I don't respect them too much in the ring once the bell rings. I fight for the fans, not money, or to be a star. They are the reason I do this and I take each fight as my most important, one at a time, and nothing will change when I'm a champion," he said.

Akron's Shawn Porter (9-0, 7 KO) will again share the card with Guerrero, as the decorated amateur will face Lamar Harris (6-2-1, 4 KO). Also on the card, heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon (25-1, 17 KO) takes on Stacy Frazier (14-5, 13 KO).
