Salisbury, MD middleweight Fernando Guerrero lost his bid for the WBO Middleweight title tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin knocked Guerrero down four times en route to the seventh-round TKO victory. Two of the knockdowns took place in the second round where Guerrero looked almost completely out. Guerrero did fight back and did have an impressive sixth round. However, he could not avoid Quillin's right hand. After two more knockdowns, the bout was stopped at 1:30 of the seventh.
Guerrero falls to 25-2, 19 KO's while Quillin remains undefeated at 29-0, 21 KO's. Barry Hunter, who once trained Guerrero, was in the corner. Guerrero's regular trainer, Virgil Hunter (no relation), was in England working Amir Khan's corner against Julio Diaz.
