Prediction,

I like this match up very much, I think it is a very interesting one.

Omar Figueroa is a good fighter at world level, he has shown good talent in the past, in my opinion, and most opinions, he is no Crawford, no Thurman, no Lomackenko, at this level, he isn't great, he showed his toughness, his grit, against Daniel Estrada, who badly, gruesomely cut Figueroa's eye with his head, all be it accidentally, but it was a clash of heads, and the referee wrongly deemed the cut was caused by a punch, which meant, that if Figueroa's corner pulled him out (which they were on the edge of doing), he would lose a TKO. Figueroa walked through Estrada in the next round, and managed to stop him, very quickly turning the fight around, when it was really going against him. Figueroa is unbeaten, and has some good wins on his resumé, Antonio DeMarco, Jerry Belmontes, Ricky Burns, but, he didn't dominate any of these guys, many people think all three were close fights, against DeMarco, he was very far ahead after 8-9 rounds, but he gassed in the late stages. We probably have not seen the best Omar Figueroa, and he is a good fighter, but I don't give him an at all strong chance of beating any of the top dogs at 147 or 140, and I don't believe he really challenges them so much, he's still awkward though, he's an easy opponent for nobody, I just think he is a substantial length below Thurman, Spence, Crawford etc.

Robert Guerrero is someone who any boxing fan absolutely has to respect, he has been around for a long time, he has been in many great fights, he is an absolute warrior, a good guy, an inspiration to many people, with the way he supported his wife and helped her through the heart breaking experience of being diagnosed with cancer. Guerrero had the opportunity of a lifetime when he fought Floyd Mayweather, he lost, he was out classed, but in all fairness, that was against the best, and Guerrero didn't look much worse than Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez did when they were given boxing lessons from the pound for pound best. Andre Berto, Michael Katsidis, Vincente Escobedo, Joel Cassaymor, Guerrero has some very good wins on his record, and he is a very fan friendly, entertaining fighter, he lost very wide to Keith Thurman, and that was a fantastic fight, there was one of the best rounds of the year 2015 in that fight, and the Danny Garcia fight, well Guerrero did everything but win that, it was a close one. Guerrero, surprisingly to me, lost to David Emanuel Peralta, who isn't a great fighter, not the kind of fighter you lose to and impress at this level, this was his last fight, at that point, it was suggested that he retire, but I wasn't sure I agreed, but it might have been advisable, was that an over the hill Guerrero?, was it just an off night?, I think this fight will give us the answer, no matter what happens now, he has done himself proud, having had the great career he has had, in particular, getting the Mayweather fight, showing the courage he showed against Thurman, boxing so well against Garcia and coming so close to becoming a world champion.

I believe Figueroa will have the edge in this fight, on paper, when you look at the two fighters, your mind will tell you a guy with no losses will beat a guy with 5, obviously, you can't rely on that and use it for real confidence in a prediction, it is just a first glance thing which often hints at the winner. I believe that the Guerrero who fought Garcia, or a Guerrero who fought Mayweather, Thurman, who beat Berto, so a prime Guerrero, he would beat Figueroa, narrowly, but I believe that although there are no discipline issues, his general fitness is fantastic, he's young for his age in that sense, Guerrero has a lot of milage, he's had a long, potentially toll taking career, I believe, unfortunately, he isn't the fighter he once was, he has declined, and I think we will see this in the last half of this fight, and I think Figueroa will just about do enough to win. I think Guerrero might take a slight lead after 6 rounds, I think Figueroa will take over as a fading Guerrero slows down in rounds 7, 8, 9, I think Figueroa will also tire, and Guerrero might come back with his 100% best effort, he might slightly get the better of the championship rounds, but I think Figueroa will have edged out the last 6 rounds in the majority of opinions, and the decision will be 50/50, I think Figueroa will get an MD, (114-114, 115-113, 115-113). I think Guerrero will be devastated, I think he will think he won the fight, understandably so, but the decision will be fair, and maybe, of this fight goes the way I think it will, that will be three consecutive losses for Guerrero, and he has had quite a career, he might retire, he won't want to, he probably won't, but I believe he should.

There is some pressure on Figueroa to win this fight, and it won't be easy, if he wins, it should set up bigger fights for the future, and hopefully, he will get at least one big opportunity at some point in his career. Maybe he will prove me wrong, but although Figueroa is a good fighter and a warrior in his own right, I don't believe he nearly makes the top 10 at 147, and at 140, well, Indongo, Broner, Prograis, I think he would be well beaten by all of them, I think Crawford goes without saying, and I don't think Jack Catterall would have much to worry about. I thought the Ricky Burns fight was very close, the fight was messy, it was scrappy, it was frustrating to watch at times, I think Figueroa really struggled with Burns, I think they were in the same class, Figueroa just ever so slightly better, whilst Burns, schooled by Indongo, Crawford, and as DeMarco gives him a tough time, wins 3-5 rounds, Broner wins every round and stops him, these are two good examples of why I believe Omar Figueroa isn't a great fighter. If Figueroa beats Guerrero, I think that will be the win of his career so far, I've seen him training for this fight, I think he is extremely motivated to win this fight, which is good, I think we might well see a better Omar Figueroa than we have ever seen before, and I will be happy for him if he proves to be a better fighter than I think he is.

For Robert Guerrero, this could be his last chance, I think he will be the underdog, he is popular, his reputation already is what it is, and his fans will always be that, so the worst case scenario is OK, but I think he will put a lot of of pressure on himself to win this fight, I think he wants to win about as much as Figueroa does. I would be very happy for Robert Guerrero if after all he's been through in his career, he was to get the victory here, and it might well happen, I think this will be a very close fight, and I think that if Guerrero can do what he did against Garcia, against Figueroa, he's got this one, and he might win it wide, I honestly believe that, but I believe that he is a declined fighter, and the timing is right for Figueroa. I think Guerrero should hang onto the fact that the pressure is on the other guy in this fight, he's already been in with the best, he's done what he's done in his career, he's made his contributions to the sport of boxing, Figueroa is the one who has to something to get the level of respect as a fighter which Guerrero has from everybody. I think this fight depends on Guerrero, is he declined?, is he the Guerrero who nearly beat Danny Garcia?, if the second, he'll win, if the first, I think he'll come up short, and if that is the case, I think it is time for 'The Ghost' to hang up the gloves.

Hope this fight is competitive.

What a war while this one lasted, such a exciting action packed fight! Ghost controlled and won the first round easy, landing some real good shots that round. Round 2 Omar came alive and tore The Ghost apart with 3 knockdowns. Round 3 Guerrero attacks Figueroa battering him against the ropes, before Omar comes back and batters Robert to the deck again. Round 3 stoppage, Guerrero took every shot Figueroa landed terribly, his punch resistance is gone. He really needs to retire, hopefully the people in his life that care for him have a long firm (if need be) talk about just this with him real soon. What a warrior's heart for Guerrero though, knockdown hard 4 times total didn't take a single one of Omar's shots well at all, yet still wouldn't stay down and wanted to continue.
