Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - After years of waiting, local boxing fans will finally get to see the area's top two heavyweight boxers meet in the ring on Friday night in the Main Event of "Rock's Extreme Fight Night VIII. Professional Muay Thai and Boxing at the Fairgrounds Arena in Robstown.

Former heavyweight contender Ron Guerrero will put on the gloves for only the second time since a disappointing loss to Francois Botha in a 2009 championship fight in South Africa. He will finally fight South Texas heavyweight Homero Fonseca, who has been asking for this fight for nearly half a decade.

Guerrero turned 40 earlier this year, and will give away 13 years to Fonseca, who brings in a reputation as a power puncher.
