Now that criminal gun possession charges against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero have been dropped, he can begin pondering what the future holds for him following his wide decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 4 in Las Vegas.
According to a story on BoxingScene.com, Guerrero could end up taking on former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz. Like Guerrero, Ortiz is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
“If I’m a fan, I think the most interesting fight is with Victor Ortiz – two southpaws, both from the Cali area; they both beat (Andre) Berto,” Guerrero’s co-manager, Luis DeCubas Jr., told BoxingScene.com. “Victor got knocked out by Mayweather (in the fourth round in 2011), Robert went the distance and did a lot better than him.”
Ortiz has not fought since having his jaw broken by Josesito Lopez last June at Staples Center.
DeCubas said another possibility for Guerrero is a rematch with Berto. The two tangled last November at Citizens Business Bank Arena, Guerrero winning a unanimous decision in a brutal bout.
