Having beaten [[Federico Catubay]] (w pts 12 at the Centennial Sports Centre, Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico on 24 July 2010), Guerrero lost his next eliminating contest against Martinez at the WinStar Casino, Thackerville, Oklahoma, USA on 20 November 2010. However, the 12-round points decision in Martinez’s favour had been so close that a return bout was a natural.
