Guerrero shoves Aydin at weigh-in
Robert Guerrero, whose fight with Selcuk Aydin on Saturday is his first above 140 pounds, made weight at Friday's weigh-in as expected but the former featherweight beltholder unexpectedly got into it with the undefeated welterweight contender.
Robert Guerrero, whose welterweight fight with Selcuk Aydin on Saturday is his first bout above 140 pounds, made weight at Friday's weigh-in as expected but the normally mild-mannered former featherweight and 130-pound beltholder unexpectedly shoved Aydin after the undefeated contender shook his fist close to his face.
Guerrero, who weighed in at 145¾ pounds, swatted down Aydin's right hand and then shoved Aydin back with both hands during their post-weigh-in staredown when he felt the Germany-based Turk's right fist got too close to his chin.
Aydin, THE RING's No. 10-rated welterweight, weighed in at 146½ pounds for their scheduled 12-round bout, which is the main event of a Showtime Championship Boxing show from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
The telecast will air live at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) with undefeated welterweight prospect Shawn Porter, 146¼, facing veteran Alfonso Gomez, 146½, in the co-featured fight and preliminary fights -- topped by junior middleweight prospect Hugo Centeno, 152, vs. Ayi Bruce, 151½ -- to air live on Showtime Extreme at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
British super middleweight contender George Groves, 169½, will take on Francisco Sierra, 170, on the Showtime Extreme broadcast.
