No, this is a young, hungry Robert Guerrero who just came off of a grueling fight with a big, strong welter weight that a lot of people thought was going to KO him out. He proved to himself that he can take a punch and win a rough, grueling fight.

Right now his confidence is at an all-time high, and that is what makes him more dangerous if they fight. Of course, FMJ may have him doubting himself by the third or fourth round, but that remains to be seen.

You realize Berto isn't Mayweather, yes?

Don't let the shoulder roll fool you.

...and he wasn't necessarily supposed to lose to Berto. Everyone recognized heading in that Guerrero was the p4p superior boxer. The only concern was the size difference, but Guerrero had a proven track record of repeatedly moving up in weight and suffering no ill effects nor getting bullied or overpowered by the "bigger" men.
