Las Vegas Boxing Welterweight Odds: Robert Guerrero vs Selcuk Aydin

With WBC Welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. out of action for a while (i.e. in jail), Golden Boy Promotions has lined up an interim title fight this weekend between former Lightweight champ Robert Guerrero and undefeated power puncher Selcuk Aydin.
Guerrero (29-1-1-2 18 KO’s) earns his shot at the title following a 15-fight unbeaten streak that included many of the top Lightweights and Featherweights. Still considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, Guerrero will look to add another title to his achievements and continue the pursuit of a big-money payday against Mayweather in the future.
Aydin (23-0 18 KO’s) has been a wrecking machine in Europe but has yet to prove himself in North America. In only his second fight in the United States, Aydin has earned a title shot and will be looking to land power shots to beat down his opponent for a KO victory.
Aydin has never faced a fighter even close to the talent level of Guerrero; how he reacts to an opponent who will be much harder to hit remains to be seen. If he can handle the adversity he’s sure to face and land enough punches to gain Guerrero’s respect he will have a chance to walk out with the belt.
Guerrero had been on a 15-month rest from action as he tended to his ill wife. It will also be his first fight at Welterweight, which will make Aydin’s punches that much harder. If ring rust and size don’t prove to be factors Guerrero should have the technique to stay out of danger and pick apart his opponent for either a decision or a KO win.
