Image result for guerrero vs peralta

David Peralta (26-2-1, 14 KO’s) was a huge underdog in Saturday night main event on Premier Boxing Champions.  Peralta, having never fought outside of his native Argentina, came to the United States for the first time in his life, for an opportunity to put his name on the map.  He delivered, when he defeated Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-5-1, 18 KO’s) in a 12 round split decision victory on Saturday.  Peralta referred to the opportunity as “the single greatest moment of his life”, and the emotions showed after he got the victory.

The first 4 rounds of the fight were all Robert Guerrero.  It seemed like it would be just a matter of time before Guerrero knocked Peralta’s head off his shoulders.  The power difference seemed like it was a lot, and Peralta was not going to last.  Peralta, knowing that he would probably never get a shot like this again, woke up and started fighting.  Put working Guerrero in almost everyone of the rounds in the second half, Peralta put himself in a good position.  Guerrero, perhaps feeling frustrated, started throwing wild bombs to KO his opponent, but it would not work.  The final tallies were 115-113 (Guerrero), 115-113 (Peralta), and 116-112 (Peralta).  We surely will see mister Peralta, after he knocked off a former world champion.
