Bio

Andres “El Guero Guerrero” Barrera, born on February 23, 2004, in Brownsville, Texas, spent his early years in the Rio Grande Valley. In 2021, he took a significant step in his career by moving to Houston to further his ambitions in boxing. Currently, he trains at Main Street Boxing in Houston and alsoat Saverese Fight Fit, a gym owned and managed by his family. Competing in the 147lbs category within the Team Combat League, Barrera's fighting style is known for its adaptability, akin to water molding to the shape of its container, making it difficult to categorize his approach under a single label. Over recent years, Barrera has been active in the ring, participating in local, state, and national competitions with the goal of fighting 10-15 times annually. He consistently strives to surpass each opponent he encounters. Furthermore, Barrera has ventured into PowerSlap with the UFC, achieving a victory in his debut match.

His journey is profoundly influenced by the resilience and dedication of his grandparents, who migrated from Mexico to the U.S. seeking a better future. At 16, a challenging phase led to him being kicked out by his mother. Reflecting on this, Barrera acknowledges that his youthful indiscretions played a part in the situation. This turn of events led him to live with his girlfriend's family, where he learned a crucial lesson about the essence of adulthood: the importance of self-reliance in facing life's challenges. This realization, coupled with his grandparents' legacy, propelled him towards personal growth in Houston, where he found and was significantly shaped by Main Street Boxing. Barrera's drive is fueled by the resilience and determination instilled by his family and his personal experiences. His aspiration to become a World Champion is a pledge to honor the legacy of the fighters he admires and to himself. While the TCL offers a great platform, Barrera says, "It is the starting point of my journey. I am determined to build a legacy that showcases my true potential as a champion to both myself and the world."
