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

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.
Good point. Varied combinations are key. He's not good enough to repeat the process over and over on the inside, but getting those in quick before retreating could work. A single clean shot to punctuate the offense looks good to the judges.
