Naazim Richardson, trainer of former middleweight and light heavywieght champ Bernard Hopkins:
John Scully, trainer of RING/WBC light heavyweight champ Chad Dawson:
"I believe Robert Guerrero will be comfortable at the weight and will maintain enough speed to stay one step ahead of Selcuk Aydin for the majority of the fight. I think he's motivated by recent events in his life and will show a renewed sense of energy in winning a decision."
Pat Burns, trainer of former middleweight champ Jermain Taylor:
Al Bernstein, a newly inducted member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame who will call the action to the Guerrero-Aydin fight for Showtime:
“The jump up in weight and the injury induced layoff (15 months) could make Guerrero vulnerable. And, Aydin is a powerful puncher and is very aggressive.
“(Aydin) is not a skilled boxer but he has genuine power in his right hand. He’ll be winging overhand rights from the start of the fight.”
Bernstein added that the 29-year-old Guererro, a champion at featherweight and junior lightweight, will be fighting in the 6th weight division of his 11-year pro career.
“If he can be impressive at 147, that would be remarkable. But this jump up in weight has perils attached to it.”
