Default Re: How I would advise Robert Guerrero to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"Climb the wall"

There was a point near the end of the eighth round of Mayweather-Cotto when Miguel managed to maneuver his foe to the ropes and then proceeded to unleash a series of combinations, first going to the body and then bringing it upstairs. In most cases, Mayweather was slipping or rolling with virtually every punch, but a couple of right hands did bounce off his head during that sequence.

One of the things that Guerrero does well is to change levels in the middle of his combinaions; so if he's able to work his way in close (either by jabbing his way in or making Floyd miss a jab and then step in), it's entirely probable that he'll launch the same combo and possible that he'll achieve the same result. If he stays responsible on the way out and defends the counter that May will throw, he's got a chance of stealing rounds by throwing combinations that might be capped by a single scoring punch to the head.
