i don’t see Berto as a particularly skilled fighter. i Do see him as an explosive and fierce puncher with limited boxing skills and stamina. he’s the type of fighter that superior boxing skills are designed to foil and defeat. poise, patience, and conditioning is the key. otherwise, i sincerely doubt that Guerrero is going to engage in the type of reckless slugfest that Ortiz engaged in. contain, counter, and frustrate for a chance to swoop on a fatigued and vulnerable Berto in the later rounds. Guerrero has his work cut out for him but i suspect that Berto will be rusty and less potent for this matchup, which is a finely-calculated challenge for Guerrero: prominent but rusty and dented Name that he an parlay into a PPV matchup v. the likes of Paquiao*, Mayweather, or even Marquez or Broner. bold, ambitious, and risky career choices for Guerrero. I Like It.Posted November 22, 2012 10:34 am
Berto is too skilled and fast for Guerrero. Berto will win an easy UD or late round stoppage. Bulking up only adds weight to Guerrero’s frame, it doesn’t add power. Guerrero is going to take a beating.Posted November 22, 2012 5:21 am
There is a lot to punching power, it starts in the mind then from the for arms.
Bruce Lee didn’t even weigh 160 and he could knock a guy back six feet from a punch an inch away. He spared with Iron Cage dummy and bent the Iron.
Guess it’s okay that Robert ‘bulked up’ since Berto demanded that he be tested for PEDs by the same geniuses that oversaw the Morales debacle. It should be in the contract that both guys must be equally juiced for this one.Posted November 21, 2012 6:18 pm
Berto is trash! This is a easy win for him!Posted November 21, 2012 3:57 pm
hopefully Guerrero has been visting the same butcher shop that Berto orders his meat from. anyway, this isn’t the first time Berto has been challenged by a light-hitting opponent (Collazo) who did pretty good v. Berto by relying on his boxing skills. Guerrero’s got them and his “bulked-up” physique will hopefully be enough to prevent Berto from bullying him around the ring. although, i just noticed that i cited “hope” twice in this brief post.Posted November 21, 2012 10:41 am
I wanted aydin to win that fight but guerrero out boxed him pretty good . come on lets tell the truth herePosted November 21, 2012 7:55 am
rooting for the ghost.bad article by the way.what crawled up your backside?Posted November 21, 2012 6:39 am
This article is nonsense. Guerrero has proven himself at welterweight. What has Berto done? Got caught cheating after losing to VICTOR ORTIZ! Surely all the question marks should surround the challenger, not the champion?Posted November 21, 2012 6:32 am
He also forgot to explain how Robert “barely” beat Aydin when we all saw robert win about 9 of 12 rounds….
He forgets to mention that Aydin was the worlds most avoided welterweight when the Ghost stepped up two weights and said “I will fight him”.Posted November 21, 2012 3:51 am
