Ruben Guerrero: Robert ready to represent La Raza

The always colorful father of Robert Guerrero was not short of words in the final days leading up to his son's fight against Danny Garcia. The biggest surprise to date is that a fight hasn't broken out between him and the father of Danny Garcia, Angel. Both men have been known to liven up pre-fight hype often finding themselves saying insane things and getting into fights. Ruben has been kind of quiet this time around...kind of

"I respect Danny Garcia and his father Angel." Ruben stated. "Together they are undefeated. They feel invincible. Our motivation going into this fight is to give them their first loss. Everyone thinks my son is washed up, but they will see that he still has a lot left in the tank. Training camp is almost done and Robert knows what he has to do. It's time to send a message to the welterweight division.

"I come from a big family and we all had it rough growing up working in the fields. We Mexicans have never had anything given to us. We had to work hard to get what we want. It's time to represent all the hard working Mexicans going through the struggle. Robert is ready to represent La Raza. You better believe the Chicanos are going to be deep at STAPLES Center. My son is coming to throw down!"
