In a night of sensational knockouts, Omar Figueroa Jr. (27-0-1, 19 KO) made the night with the greatest comeback he could’ve hoped for against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-6-1, 18 KO) on July 15.
The two elite fighters clashed in the main card of an event in Nassau Coliseum in New York.
Many of his fans, though they always had faith in his skills, were worried that his hands would not hold up in the ring, as he has had hand injuries in the past. Figueroa calmly put all of their worries to rest tonight in the ring.
He knocked Robert Guerrero down five times in the lead up to his third round TKO victory. Landing nearly half of his punches thrown, Figueroa forced Guerrero fight his fight and punished Guerrero for it.
After the bout, Figueroa assured his fans that his hands felt phenomenal and claimed he wanted a belt not at 147, but 140 pounds. After tonight, it’s clear that, if Figueroa is able to make the weight, he will do damage in the 140 pound division.
