Ruben Guerrero, Robert’s father and a former amateur champion, raised and trained him. As a child, he and his siblings trained in boxing, and he rapidly shown his ability. He turned professional at the age of 18 and fought for the first time in 2001, defeating Alejandro Cruz by unanimous decision. In December 2004, he went on a winning streak and defeated Cesar Figueroa to capture the WBC NABF Featherweight title. He successfully defended it twice, but was eventually beaten in an upset split decision by Gamallel Diaz. He bounced back by defeating Sandros Marcos, earning him a rematch with Diaz, whom he knocked out in the first round. This victory qualified him to fight IBF champion Eric Aiken, whom he defeated by technical knockout. He then attempted to defend his title against Orlando Salido, but was defeated – the victory was controversial because it was later discovered that Salido had been taking steroids. In 2007, Robert was given another chance at the crown, this time defeating Spend Abazi. He defended his championship against Martin Honorio, who he knocked out in the first round. He defeated Jason Litzau the next year before vacating the title to move up a weight class. His financial worth was also increasing.
Guerrero made his HBO debut in 2009, fighting Daud Yordan, but the bout was ruled a “no contest” due to a head-butt. He fought Efren Hinojosa a few months later, and despite a cut near his eye, he won by TKO in the eighth round. He was then lined up for a battle for the IBF Super Featherweight title against Malcolm Klassen, which he won by unanimous decision. He resigned the following year, claiming that he needed to care for his wife. He returned to boxing in 2010 and competed in the lightweight class against Robert Arrieta.
He won the fight and was then promoted to the junior welterweight division, where he faced Joel Casamayor. He defeated Vicente Escobedo by unanimous decision and went on to win the WBO Intercontinental lightweight title. He defeated Michael Kastidis in 2011, claiming the interim WBA and WBO lightweight belts in the process. He was then forced to miss six months due to an injury.
When he returned, he moved up two weight divisions to meet Selcuk Aydin, who was undefeated at the time, and won the interim WBC welterweight title. After defeating Andre Buerto, he decided to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr, whom he defeated by unanimous decision. He took a year off before winning against Yoshiro Kamegai. Robert then faced Keith “One-Time” Thurman, winning the fans over but losing the match. Danny “Swift” Garcia, who is unbeaten, was one of his most recent opponents. Garcia was declared the winner by a unanimous judgment.
Except for the fact that Guerrero’s wife Casey, whom he married in 2005, was afflicted with leukemia and he had to care for her for a spell, little is known about his personal life.
