Guerrero-Berto Fight Goes the Distance! [Video]
“I did tell Andre I was going to beat him down, so I had to be a man of my word,” Guerrero said. “But he did defend himself like a true champ. … I had to get on the inside with him, work his body and fight him on the inside.”
“I just didn’t understand,” Berto said. “He was coming in, grabbing and holding me. Every time I tried to get off, the referee kept warning me for shots. … At the end of the day, Robert fought a good fight and he got the win. If you want to do it again, we’ll definitely do that.” – espn
