Roberto says no time for one time

Robert Guerrero turns down another fight?! Get outta here! Say it aint so...

Lmao

Smart man, he ain't in a hurry to get knocked out "one time". Thurman is very poised in there, he stops guerrero.

I agree with Professor though, it was a smart move, because he can fight someone else a bit more relevant for close to the same money that he made against Floyd. If he beats Thurman, then Im not so sure how much that will do for his career. If he loses to Thurman in a bad fashion, then congrats to Keith and his career moving forward, because Guerrero is more known than him.

When Floyd did this same thing vs Baldomir he was accused of ducking Margarito. I find it totally biased that people can get all over the internet on every boxing website and blog and make an excuse for Robert Guerrero but simply roast Mayweather for the same thing.

But people EXPECTED more from Floyd...Im not so sure people expect much from Guerrero, that's if they even care to begin with. In my mind, I know that Guerrero will eventually fight Thurman...its not like its never going to happen.

To me, Robert is in that same mix with Maidana, Lopez, Ortiz, Berto, Matthysse, Garcia, Judah, Khan, Alexander, and a few others under GBP...they'll eventually fight, because popularity-wise (not sure if that's even a word), they're careers are only going to go so far.

Out of that bunch, maybe two of them will excel to super stardom. Guerrero's had the biggest fight that he'll ever have...it's just up to the rest of these guys to be built up to a high level, so it wont seem as if Robert is taking that big of a step backwards, at this point in time. Now...maybe late next year, a Thurman fight will be bigger, but now, Robert may wanna wait around for Maidana, Alexander, or Khan.

Look who has come up from air!

Also, factor in Mayweather just left Top Rank and that fight was not going to happen. Guerrero and Thurman are with the same promotional company so really this is Guerrero either trying to get an Ortiz match up or maybe wait for the winner of Broner and Maidana. That would be my guess. Also, Bladomire was a champion if I am not mistaken, what the hell was the Tijuana Tornado?
