Richard Schaefer confirms the return of Robert Guerrero on June 21

Two-weight world title holder Robert Guerrero is finally ready to get his career back on track on June 21 after taking an extended break from the sport following his loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.

It’s been over a year already since ‘The Ghost’ was brushed aside by the pound for pound king 117-111 on all three cards at the MGM Grand and Guerrero has bided his time before lacing up the gloves again.

Now, the talented southpaw takes on Japan’s Yoshihiro Kamegai at the Stubhub Center in California at part of a triple-header bill topped by the vacant WBO featherweight title clash between Gary Russell Jr and amateur star Vasyl Lomachenko.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer also rubberstamped to WBN that ex-IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander will also feature of the Carson card as he also looks to come back from a damaging title defeat to Shawn Porter in December.

Alexander battles hard-hitting Mexican Jesus Soto-Karass, who is named as the fourth of the six participants to come into the event on a loss. Karass suffered a ninth round stoppage reverse against Keith Thurman at the Alamodome in Texas last year and will hope to avoid a tenth career defeat next month.

More fights will be added to the bill in due course as unbeaten American Russell 24-0, 14 KO’s aims to inflict a second straight loss on Ukrainian Lomachenko and claim his first world title.
