Guerrero: I Had To Keep My Word, Beat Berto Down!

Ontario, California - WBC interim-welterweight champion Robert Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KOs) said he was on a mission Saturday night, and that mission was accomplished when he dropped Andre Berto (28-2, 22KOs) twice to win a twelve round unanimous decision. All three judges had it 116-110. Both of Berto's eyes were swollen shut by the end of the fight and he took a lot of punishment.

''I did tell Andre I was going to beat him down, so I had to be a man of my word,'' Guerrero said. ''But he did defend himself like a true champ. I had to get on the inside with him, work his body and fight him on the inside. He didn't hurt me at all. I took some good shots from him. He's a strong guy, punched hard, but I've got a good chin.''

Berto promised to return stronger in the near future.

"At the end of the day, Robert fought a good fight and he got the win. If you want to do it again, we'll definitely do that," Berto said.
