Guzman definitely faked injury, IMHO.
Not at all. He's not the type to fake it. He had gotten back into the fight with his boxing. He could have told the ref he couldn't go anymore when he first went down. He didn't, he limped back out and tried to fight through it. Allakhverdiev didn't seem to land anything of significance when he bumrushed him either.
Guzman is hard to watch now days. He doesn't have the elusive reflexes he had in his younger days, yet he still stands in and tries to fight on the inside. Something as simple as stepping back and boxing from the outside effectively as he was doing the last couple rounds, should have been done right from the start.
