Odds To Win
Keith Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) enters the fight a favorite in Vegas and online sportbooks. But Robert Guerrero is a rugged veteran that will not give in easily to the undefeated up-and-comer.
Thurman, 26 years old, comes to the bout having previously outpointed Leonard Bundu in a tactical chess match in December 2014. Before Bundu, Thurman had stopped Julio Diaz and veteran Jesus Soto Karass.
In his previous fight, 31-year-old Robert Guerrero (32-2-1, 18 KOs) defeated Yoshihiro Kamegai in a savage 2014 Fight of the Year candidate at the StubHub Center in California. That bout followed Guerrero’s loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 2013.
