Guerrero is a story about the ups and downs of a boxer’s life.
Ramon (Genesis Gomez) is a boxer who is used to losing. Always cheering on Ramon from the sidelines is Miguel (Julio Cesar Sabenorio), his younger brother. Miguel gives Ramon hope and joy, while Ramon’s determination continues to serve as an inspiration to the young Miguel. “Ang Kuya Kong Palaging Talo Sa Umpisa” (My Older Brother Who Always Fails At First), is the title of the poem Miguel wrote about Ramon.
The brothers’ closeness is soon threatened with the arrival of the beautiful Abby (Joyselle Cabanlong). In love and inspired, Ramon becomes a better boxer—but starts neglecting Miguel.
