Fernando Guerrero Has A New Fight Televised On ESPN
Prizefight Promotions, Team Guerrero and our great sponsors Pohanka Automotive group and Yard Designs Inc. are pleased to announce that Fernando Guerrero 21-0 will fight on June 17th in Austin TX. The bout will be a 10 round main event televised live on ESPN Friday Night Fights. Guerrero will face Michael "Murder Man" Medina 24-3-2 from Montery Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This will Guerrero's first fight in TX and is looking forward to the test.
Guerrero is coming of a dominating win over Derrick Findley in an ESPN fight that was held here in Salsibury at the Wicomico Civic Center.
"Medina is one of those very busy fighters, he comes at you and throws a lot of punches. When he fought John Duddy he made a good fighter look bad and caught him with a lot of shots. Duddy eeked out the win, but it did not help in making Duddy look like the prospect so many feel he is.
Certainly we can not afford a loss, that's for sure, but we also can no afford anything other than a great performance. Boxing has to be one of the most unforgiving sports." said Guerrero's manager, Hal Chennoff. "Recently there have been a lot of major upsets in boxing. It seems like the guys climbing the ladders finally understands how hungry you have to be and what happens when you lose. So many people were very high on James Kirkland and Middleweight David Lemieux of Canada, yet both were stopped by guys they were expected to beat. Andre Berto lost his world championship to Victor Ortiz and there are more.
We are getting very close to a world title bid, but you can not look past the guy you face next. That's the biggest fight, the most important fight, so that's how you prepare for it. There is a reason Medina is 24-3-2. That means he has his eyes set on the same things we do. He's hungry and we're hungry, so I expect a great fight. ESPN also likes the matchup or they would not apporve.
With the help of Yard Designs Inc and Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury, Clear Channel Outdoor will be putting up a couple billboards to announce the fight and remind them when it is, and where they can watch it.
