Robert Guerrero gave some parting shots after his narrow unanimous decision victory over Victor Ortiz this past weekend at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as the Co-Main Event of the manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas WBA welterweight championship match. All 3 judges scored the 10 round fight 96-94 in Guerrero’s favor. Both are former champions in the twilight of their respective careers, and the winner may get another shot at a huge payday, possibly even a title fight. The loser is left to contemplate and regroup. Robert Guerrero is the former, Victor Ortiz the latter.

“It felt good to be back in the ring with fans and I definitely fed off of their energy.
“I knew this was going to be an all-out war. Victor Ortiz brought the best out of me tonight. It was back and forth action the entire fight and I came out on top as I predicted.
“Now I’m ready to step up and fight anyone they put in front of me. I have a lot left in me and I’m in this sport to win another world title. I dedicate this fight to my family and I give all the glory to my lord and savior Jesus Christ.”

“I thought I won. It is what it is. It was a close fight. He didn’t hurt me. A couple times I got caught off balance but that was it. I should have boxed a little better, but hey, he did what he had to do.
“I know I box a lot more usually. But tonight it was more toe-to-toe. I don’t know if it was machismo or what. It was a good fight though. He’s a great fighter.
“We’re still fighting. We have a decade left. I’m going to stay at welterweight and I’ll take any 147-pounder.”
