Robert was raised and trained by his father Ruben Guerrero who was a former amateur champion. He and his brothers trained in boxing as they were growing up, and he quickly showed potential. He turned professional at the age of 18 and had his first fight in 2001 against Alejandro Cruz which he won via unanimous decision. He would go on a winning streak and win the WBC NABF Featherweight title against Cesar Figueroa in December 2004. He defended it successfully twice, but was then defeated by Gamallel Diaz in an upset split decision. He shook off this loss by defeating Sandros Marcos, earning him a rematch against Diaz who he knocked out during their fight. This win set him up to fight against the IBF champion Eric Aiken, who he defeated via technical knockout. He then defended his belt against Orlando Salido but was unsuccessful – the win was controversial as it was later discovered that Salido was using steroids. Robert then got another shot at the title, winning against Spend Abazi in 2007. He defended the title once more against Martin Honorio who he defeated in a first round knockout. The following year, he defeated Jason Litzau and then decided to vacate the title to move up a weight class. His net worth was rising too.
In 2009, Guerrero made his HBO debut fighting Daud Yordan, and the fight ended in a “no contest” because of a head-butt. A few months later, he fought Efren Hinojosa and despite a cut near his eye he manged to win via TKO during the eighth round. He was then set up for a fight against Malcolm Klassen for the IBF Super Featherweight title and he won with a unanimous decision. The following year, he vacated the title as he stated he needed to take care of his wife. In 2010, he returned to the boxing world and moved up to the lightweight division, fighting Robert Arrieta. He won the match and was then moved up another weight class to fight Joel Casamayor in the junior welterweight division. He won via unanimous decision and then fought Vicente Escobedo and won again, getting the WBO Inter-Continental lightweight title. In 2011, he fought Michael Kastidis and got the win, securing both the interim WBA and WBO lightweight titles. He then had to treat an injury and was absent for six months.
In his return he jumped up two weight divisions to face the undefeated Selcuk Aydin and promptly won the interim WBC welterweight title. He then won against Andre Buerto and decided to challenge Floyd Mayweather Jr, a fight he lost via unanimous decision. He took a break for a year and then won against Yoshiro Kamegai. Robert then fought Keith “One-Time” Thurman, a fight in which he won over the crowd but lost the match. One of his latest fights was against Danny “Swift” Garcia who is undefeated. The match was won by Garcia in a unanimous decision.
For his personal life, not much is known about it except for the fact that Guerrero’s wife Casey, who he married in 2005, was diagnosed with leukemia and he had to take care of her for a while.
