[...] the Gilroy boxer is 34 years old and the former four-division, six-time world champ hasn’t been hard to miss his past six fights.Three of those four losses were to undefeated fighters, and Guerrero (33-5-1, 18 knockouts) faces a fourth Saturday night, when he walks into the ring to face Omar Figueroa Jr. in Uniondale, N.Y.The 10-round welterweight fight will be on Fox Sports 1.Figueroa watched Guerrero’s losses to champs Floyd Mayweather Jr., Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia, and says the southpaw has his full respect.“You develop that kamikaze mentality,” Figueroa (26-0-1, 18 KOs) said in a conference call.“These are two guys that need this win and two guys that are going to throw down really, really hard,” promoter Lou DiBella said.Frankly, Robert Guerrero’s never done anything his whole career but throw down.Unfornately, Guerrero has become an opponent in recent years, a famous name that promoters use to sell tickets and beef up younger fighters’ resumes and street cred.“When they start calling you the gatekeeper, that (means) you’re an opponent, pretty much, for the guy to make that next step,” Guerrero said.[...] it comes down to lack of preparation and not being 100 percent prepared like I should, listening to my father (trainer Ruben) in the ring, what to do and it comes down to actions speak louder than words.When Guerrero moved up to 147 pounds and outpunched Selcuk Aydin in 2012, Guerrero got the idea that he could trade punches with bigger fighters.Vic Tafur is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

- With late father on mind, Jabari Brown chases NBA dream with Warriors
By Connor Letourneau - Monday Jul 10, 2017
David’s encouraging words kept Brown focused on the ultimate objective: a lengthy NBA career.“He’d help keep my mind in the right place,” said Brown, a shooting guard for his hometown Golden State Warriors’ Summer League team.Over the next 20 months, as Jabari began the nomadic life of an undrafted free agent, he was inspired by how his dad slogged through chemotherapy cycles without complaint.In that gymnasium at 2350 Broadway, David taught Jabari a pure shooting form: balanced frame, minimal follow-through, relaxed shoulders, spread fingers.Trips to Oracle Arena for Warriors games were spent discussing how Jabari could incorporate aspects of NBA greats’ playing styles.On Dec. 29, 2014, a day after he hit the go-ahead three-pointer in the closing minute of Missouri’s win at North Carolina State, Jabari returned to Oakland and learned his dad was in the hospital.In 19 games with the Lakers the following season, he averaged 11.9 points and shot 43.5 percent from three-point range.“The chance for him to come see me play meant a lot to me,” Jabari said.Because when he got sick, I wasn’t sure if he’d ever get to come see me play.

By Chronicle staff - Monday Jul 17, 2017
Robert Guerrero, a former four-division, six-time world champion, retired from boxing Monday. “I am announcing my retirement,” the Gilroy native wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to everyone — especially the fans. I hope you appreciated the guts & glory I left in the ring. God bless.” Guerrero — nicknamed “The Ghost” — had a 33-6-1 record, but five of the losses came in his last seven fights. The last of those was Saturday night when former WBC world light heavyweight champion Omar Figuerora Jr. (27-0-1) pumelled Guerrero, stopping him in the third round in Uniondale, N.Y.
