Roberto Guerrero's next opponent? Richard Schaefer speaks

With Amir Khan vs Zab Judah becoming a reality, Roberto Guerrero will now headline a “Boxing After Dark” telecast on HBO on August 6th. So who would “The Ghost” face? Schaefer says, "Well, one fight- and I have to be careful how I say it- but I know one fight every fight fan would probably want to give me a hug for is if we could do a Guerrero fight against [Marcos] Maidana. That would be a helluva fight. I mean, there’s NOTHING bad we could say about that fight. I think we’d probably call it “Excitement” because it’s excitement all around and that would be an amazing fight."

No disagreements here; sign me up for Guerrero-Maidana. 

Schaefer says he’s discussed this with Guerrero’s manager, Bob Santos, who is on board with this proposed fight.

As for Erik Morales, who just fought tooth-and-nail with Maidana in April, "I think Erik wants to fight in August in Mexico. We had discussed with him the possibility to fight Khan, as well. He’s very interested in fighting Khan in the fall but he would really like to have another fight before that and his preference is doing it in Mexico. So it looks like we’re going to be working with him on putting a fight together in Mexico."

In regard to the rescheduled bout between Joseph Agbeko and Abner Mares, which will take place on August 13th on Showtime, the search is on for a venue.

"I talked to Don King last week," said Schaefer. "He said he was looking at some sites. We are looking at some sites. One possibility would be the Hard Rock in Las Vegas."


As promised, a new-and-improved version of “The Main Event” is back, as Corey Erdman and I are now co-piloting “Maxboxing Radio,” which airs Thursdays on The Score on SIRIUS 158 at 9 PM, ET. Non-subscribers can tune in at
