David Peralta has 28 professional bouts, every one of them contested in his native Argentina. Not only has Peralta never fought in the U.S., he has never even boxed for a major title.
All this would seem to make him a huge underdog for his fight Saturday against former world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-4-1, 18 KOs). They will square off in the welterweight main event at Honda Center in Anaheim (on Spike).
At a workout Wednesday in Costa Mesa, Peralta (25-2-1, 14 KOs) spoke in confident tones about his big chance.
