Letting Guerrero into the ring again would be criminal. Three stars for the action, I guess, but it is never good to watch a former champion become a human punching bag.
I completely agree but I think Guerrero basically threw the fight away by fighting the wrong fight.
He could have simply outboxed him and followed on from the 1st round especially after he got dropped the first time in the 2nd. With his level of experience, he should have known he had no business fighting on the inside in this fight.
I think Guerrero tried to prove too much here and may be time to hang them up as a result before he takes too much further future punishment.
I agree with your analysis, Barry. In rd 1, Guerrero seemed to have proper distance and the right approach. From rd 2 on, he fought Figueroa’s fight. Did his corner not advise him?
Well, maybe Guerrero had the good approach but that was until he got it flush… It was just a matter of time after that. Thank God he announced his retirement.
Good points, Barry. He has since done exactly as you predicted. Can’t fault the Ghost in terms of courage or dedication; an impressive career by someone who made the most of his abilities.
For a long time professional to implement a totally disastrous strategy seems to indicate the inability to think. Guerrero has provided some great fights andentertainment over the years. I just hope that he stays retired, there is no point in getting brain damage, you can not stay at the top forever as has been proved by numerous champions.
