Default Why isn't Berto castigated for cherry picking Guerrero like Canelo was for Lopez?

Canelo was flamed for fighting a 140 pounder, but at least Lopez had a win against Ortiz, who's just as big as Canelo and was actually considered an elite fighter. Now Berto is fighting a lighweight with a single 147 win against Aydin, who was a tiny welter and was basically a nobody.

I don't get why people consider this anymore legitimate than Canelo fighting Lopez.

I know some people are high on Guerrero, which is fine, but the fact is there still remains a huge natural weight difference.

Probably because Berto isn't that good.

Jump off a bridge guy. Not the same at all. The Ghost is a good small guy who can actually box not a small one hit wonder.

Ps .....I do think Berto destroys him though

I hold a win against Ortiz (enter the ring at 164lbs, same as Canelo) even if he hadn't fought at 154 yet to higher esteem than I do against freaken Aydin (enters the ring at 151lbs).

Still lots of differences. For starters, Lopez is likely better than Berto. So it's still a step up. Guerrero has also fought at 147 before.
