This Saturday night at the HP Pavilion, San Jose, California, televised live on Showtime Championship Boxing 10 PM ET/PT, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero 29-1-1 (18) steps up in weight to take on number one undefeated contender, Selcuk Aydin 23-0 (17) for the interim WBC welterweight strap. Guerrero, a three time world champion looks to add another belt to his collection and step a little closer to a world class clash against Floyd Mayweather Jr. but as Robert himself stated, "first things first."

In this exclusive interview, Guerrero speaks out on his upcoming bout, his future and more enjoy.

Benny Henderson Jr. It has been a long fifteen month layoff, how’s the shoulder, and give the readers your thoughts on your upcoming match-up?

Robert Guerrero
The shoulder is fine and the doctor said I’ll be punching with 10% more power.  I went to the best physical therapist, Lisa Giannone at Active Care in San Francisco.  This is a big fight because I’m moving up two weight classes to fight the number 1 contender with no tune up and a long layoff.  I’m confident in my ability to come out victorious, because I believe in myself when others doubt me. 

BH All though your opponent Selcuk Aydin has flown under the radar, he is a tough cat, your thoughts on your opponent, and how do your style and his match-up?

This is going to be one of the best fights of 2012 because he comes forward with a lot of pressure, which makes for an exciting fight for the fans.  I like to mix it up as well and there will be a lot of action in this fight.  This guy is a hot head and he feels disrespected so he’s going to be coming hard.  It’s on!

BH What about the jump up in weight?

I feel great and I’m comfortable at 147.  I’m eating good food everyday and I’ll be ready on fight night.

BH There have been rumblings that if you are victorious, you will be in line for Mayweather Jr.,.your thoughts?

First thing is first, I must get past Aydin and then we can talk about my future.  The winner will be the mandatory to fight Floyd so this is big for both of us.  I’m coming to win. 

BH I have read that Aydin said that he is going to break your jaw, your thoughts on such a bold statement?

He’ll find out real quick that I aint intimidated by his bullying antics.  He better be ready.

BH What can the fight fans expect from you come fight night?

RG A whole lot of skill, action and big bombs.  It’s going to be a war.

BH Anything in closing?

I’m focused and ready for this tough fight.  I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for getting me to this point.  Without him, I don’t know where I would be.  I’m blessed to be in this great position.  For those of you who want to follow me on twitter @ghostboxing Facebook/Ghostfans.  Check out this video on my personal story with my wife.  Showtime did an excellent job.
