R.I.P. Rafael Guzman - April 9, 1986 - October 18, 2011

Rafael Guzman (28-3-1, 20 KO), former WBC FECOMBOX lightweight titlist and NABF and WBO NABO featherweight challenger, was slain outside his home in Guadalajara, Mexico October 18, 2011. Two gunmen assaulted Guzman and escaped.

Guzman impressed American fight fans in June 2011 when he put in a gutsy performance against undefeated Miguel Angel Garcia (then 25-0, 21 KO). Guzman had taken the fight on short notice after Garcia's original opponent withdrew due to a hand injury. Though Guzman lost via 4th round technical knockout, the fight, which aired on HBO from the Staples Center in California, gave Guzman an opportunity to put his courage on display for a worldwide audience.

FightSaga.com sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Rafael "Chocho" Guzman.
