Guerrero gets nod on all cards

BY foxsports • April 9, 2011

Robert Guerrero unanimously outpointed Australia's Michael Katsidis on Saturday to take the vacant WBA and WBO interim lightweight titles.

Guerrero, the former IBF featherweight and super-featherweight champion, had winning scores of 117-108, 118-106, 118-107 from the judges in the 12-round bout.

Guerrero solidified his position as one of the top lightweights in the world, outslugging Katsidis and leaving his face battered.

On the undercard, former IBF junior welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi earned a lopsided unanimous decision over Jose Miguel Cotto, Nobuhiro Ishida stunned the previously unbeaten James Kirkland, and super lightweight prospect Danny Garcia earned a unanimous decision over former lightweight champ Nate Campbell.
