IBF jr lightweight champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (25-1-1, 17 KOs) will not defend his belt on March 27. “I’m going through a difficult time dealing with my wife Casey’s illness with Leukemia,” said Guerrero in a statement. “Fortunately we found a bone marrow match, but there are some complications that are making things difficult. I’m asking everyone in the boxing community along with family, friends and the general public to keep Casey in their prayers.”
