But it was a good win for Robert and his timing couldn't be better. I still think 147 isn't a good weight for him but the division is pretty weak right now and I think he can actually compete with some of the top guys. I would have way rather see Guerrero mix it up with some of the guys @ 140.
I only caught the last 4 rounds of this fight this morning and yeah there was a lot of holding,rios/Alvarado didn't do that,i'll check that fight you're talking about,but i guess this one was good from what I've read,plus something else,i don't think berto is as good as he thinks,and i would have liked it if guerrero had stayed at 140,but i think we all know why he went to 147,mayweather $$$$$
