Was he actually blocking? Did he change any of his old habits?

No. It was pretty unimpressive. Even the shots he landed didn't seem to have the same pop. They had Froch doing a bit of analysis and he seemed very unimpressed.

Anyway, currently on my way to the Berto fight. Ill see if I can get any decent pictures.

This ESPN article sums it up pretty well, and covers a lot of the initial thoughts I had.

My quick thoughts:

- Very impressive stuff from Guerrero. I've seen some of those shots from Berto knock people out.
- I actually thought the inside fighting would favor Berto, as a lot of his knockouts in the past have come from uppercuts, but Guerrero has a great, great chin. He switched up his own style really well.
- I didn't much care for some of Guerrero's tactics, but the crowd (thanks to the referee, mostly) seemed pretty unaware of what was going on and reacted heavily to the warnings given to Berto.
- Berto's shoulder roll/stance in the first few rounds was really bizarre. I assume the thinking was that his short arms/reach disadvantage would be well served by making Guerrero reach, but it was really odd to watch. He just didn't look comfortable.
- I thought the first knockdown (keep in mind, this is coming from a huge Berto fan) was a joke. Not sure how the ref missed Guerrero holding his head.
- Berto let Guerrero push him into the ropes the entire night, but I actually expected that to benefit Berto, and I think later in the fight it did.
- It was complete BS the way the crowd reacted to Berto, in my opinion. Great, hard fighting through ridiculously swollen eyes, but I think the refs warnings (which oddly were given exclusively to Berto, despite Guerrero's holding and leading with his head most of the fight) really influenced the crowd's opinion.
- Berto didn't throw enough punches, plain and simple. If there was one thing I couldn't stop thinking the entire fight it was that he'd be comfortably in the lead if he had just thrown more punches. I think he was trying to wear Guerrero out, but it just didn't happen.

All-in-all it was really impressive from Guerrero. I didn't care at all for the way he kept leading with his head, but he took lots of shots that could have finished lesser fighters. I'd actually be very curious to see Guerrero fight Mayweather. He can't afford to get reckless the way he did in the later rounds against PBF, but if Berto couldn't knock him out I'd be surprised if Mayweather did.

Not enough punches thrown, exhibit 1 around 1:08 - 1:24: http://boxingchannel.tv/anxious-to-g...-over-guerrero

David Dinkins, Jr. and some of his crew are speaking to my Sports TV right now. So cool. We're discussing boxing and MMA.

Also, he offered any of us a chance to work (paid) the Cotto/Trout fight on Saturday if we wanted some experience. I might do it. It would be such an awesome experience.

I'd probably do that for free, honestly. Berto and Cotto are my two favorite fighters and the Trout fight should be a good one. Plus, No Doubt Trout is about as cool as nicknames come.

I think trout is a bad size and style for cotto, at least that's what I'm telling myself, because cotto was pretty mediocre last night and i want to believe cotto has a couple more great fights in him left.
