Forestville, MD featherweight Eric "Mighty Mouse" Aiken was stopped in the eighth round and lost his IBF Featherweight title to Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero last night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Guerrero took the fight directly to Aiken from the opening bell and never let up. By the fourth round, Guerrero was in complete control. At the end of the eighth round, Aiken went back to his corner and told his trainer, Adrian Davis, he did not want to continue. Davis told referee Tony Crebs that Aiken had a broken right hand.
Guerrero is the real deal and deserved the victory over Aiken. He fought an outstanding bout. Aiken tried to fight inside, but Guerrero seemed to overpower him at times during the bout.
Aiken's record now falls to 16-5 with 12 knockouts. It is the first time Aiken has been stopped in a bout.
