Adrien Broner: Andre Berto Should Beat Guerrero Easy
By Rick Reeno
WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner is fully backing former two-time beltholder Andre Berto (28-1, 22KOs) to defeat WBC interim-welterweight champ Robert Guerrero (30-1-1, 18KOs) on Saturday night at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. HBO will televise the fight.
Broner says his prediction is not based on a September confrontation with Guerrero - which took place at the official weigh-in for Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson. And his prediction is not based on the fact that he and Berto share the same manager, Al Haymon. According to Broner, his prediction is completely based on the skills of both fighters.
"My prediction is not based on the little confrontation that me and Robert Guerrero had. I'm looking at it as a boxer too. I know boxing. With the skills that Andre Berto has - he should win this fight easily. He can make it as easy as he wants. Robert Guerrero is a tough fighter, a world class fighter, and he could punch. This should be a good fight," Broner told BoxingScene.com.
