Nohelin Hernandez: The Fighting Pride of Gilroy

While the combat sports world has been inundated with mixed martial artists challenging boxers for global supremacy in the fight kingdom, Nohelin ‘Suave’ Hernandez (4-0) targets, at least at this early stage in his career, the top spot in his hometown: Gilroy, California.

Fresh from a first-round stoppage of Mike Olson (3-2) at Conquer Fighting Championships 4, Hernandez heralded his efforts in the cage during a post-fight interview with Inside the Ropes (IRT) Boxing (link here). More compelling than a comprehensive account of how he remained undefeated over a no-nonsense opponent, the product of American Kickboxing Academy unlocked a realm of possibility after placing Robert ‘The Ghost’ Guerrero (33-5-1 2NC), a boxing champion from the same city as Hernandez, in his crosshairs.

The proud native of the Bay Area began, “I’m representing the Bay, more specifically: Gilroy, California. I’m out there trying to be the best fighter.” Hernandez understands: to be the best, you must defeat the best; therefore, he continued, “I’m going to call out ‘The Ghost’ Guerrero right now.” He then, with an eerie sixth sense, spoke directly to ‘The Ghost,’ “You’re old, irrelevant—move over man. There’s a new king of this shit out here.”

Guerrero, the former IBF Featherweight Champion and IBF Junior Lightweight Champion, is scheduled to face Omar Figueroa Jr. on July 15, 2017. Hernandez entered Conquer 4 contracted to meet Josh San Diego (7-3) at Global Knockout 10 on August 5, 2017, which he also mentioned with IRT Boxing.

If Guerrero were to accept this match with Hernandez, fight fans can unlock the mystery as to which of these combatants from Gilroy should hold in their gloved hand the keys to the ‘Garlic Capital of the World.’
