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

Guerrero has to make it a dogfight and be dirty. Not Judah/Ortiz dirty, but Castillo dirty. Holding, phonebooth fighting, elbows, etc. You CANNOT overcome the skills of Floyd. You need to frustrate Floyd, somehow.
How is the post bad when all you're proposing is "be dirty for 12 rounds"? A diversity of tactics is demonstrably better against Floyd and we've seen pure pressure fail on numerous occasions. If you go in the ring thinking Floyd is unbeatable on the outside no matter what you do every moment of the fight, you've lost half the battle already.
