Amateur Career

Guerrero won a National Junior Olympic Gold Medal at 15 and was also voted the most outstanding fighter of the ESPN-televised tournament. A year later, he qualified for the 2000 Olympic trials, where he took third place after a loss to eventual-Olympian Clarence Vinson. At age 16, he was the youngest fighter to compete for the American team. He decided to turn professional right out of high school, at the age of 18. [1] [2]

Split With Goosen Tutor Promotions

Guerrero did not fight from February 2008 to January of 2009 due to a contract dispute with his then promoter Goossen Tutor. Guerrero claimed he sought a breakup with Dan Goossen in part because he hadn't received the big-money fights he craved against the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. The arbitration case, which was held before the California State Athletic Commission, also hinged on the length of Guerrero's contract after an injury layoff earlier in his career. In December of 2008, the California attorney general's office ruled in Guerrero's favor, allowing him to become a free agent. Shortly after the ruling, Guerrero signed with Golden Boy Promotions. In September of 2009, however, Goossen Tutor won its case on appeal, with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert H. O'Brien finding against the ruling of the CSAC and that "The award was procured by corruption, fraud or other undue means." Despite the ruling, Guerrero remained with Golden Boy Promotions as the time frame of the original contract had expired months prior. [3] [4]
