[...] 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.

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.
- Help! My direct mail is turning into my Dad's direct mail!
By Jeff Brooks - Wednesday Jul 5, 2017
Men: You are turning into your father. If you don't have kids, and/or you're under 30, you might not believe me. But it's one of the most powerful forces you'll encounter in your life. Most likely in a situation with your kids, you'll suddenly realize with mixed horror and wonder: I just did exactly what Dad would have done. I'm my Dad! The same thing happens to women. You are turning into your mother. Resistance is futile. We're seeing this in fundraising as Boomers move into the ranks of donors in meaningful numbers. They're turning into their parents.
