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.

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