Robert Guerrero decision Jerry Thomas!
Former IBF featherweight and junior lightweight champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero picks up his third straight win since his devastating knockout loss to Omar Figueroa in 2017. This time, he would completely outclass the younger but over-matched Gerald “Jerry” Thomas (14-2-1, 8KO).
Prior, The Ghost told 3kingsboxing.com that his goal was to bring back the old version of himself that lead to him being a two-division champion. He mentioned that being an elusive boxer and not the brawler he has become more recently is what got him his early success.
Guerrero kept his word and Thomas could not figure out how to close the distance as the older former champion cruised to a unanimous decision victory by the scores of 99-91 2x and 98-92.
“I got some rounds in tonight, which was valuable. We got what we needed and boxed our way to victory.
“I want to get back into those bigger fights. I moved around and stayed smart in there tonight. The goal was to stick to the game plan and I did until the end of the fight, but then I got right back on it. You just have to keep working out the kinks and that’s what I’m going to keep doing.
Robert Guerrero – Welterweight Champion“
