he fought outside his comfort zone because he saw teh blueprint on how to beat Berto from both Ortiz, and Collazo: Take it to Berto on the inside, where he squares up, and is helpless basically. . . If you try to box Berto from the outside, or hook with him from mid-range, he'll eventually catch you due to his superior athleticism, speed, and reflexes. Also has better "one shot" power. .
But if you take it to him on the inside, he's infantile, and vulnerable. In hindsight, I'm not suprised Guerrero did this. But I was thinking at first he might not be strong enough to deal with Berto even on the inside. . . But what a great, genius game plan from Guerrero and his team.
Guerrero's first choice is always to box from distance behind his southpaw jab. . But last night he showed he can adjust his game, and follow a game plan.
