That ref should be banned from any major boxing matches.
I agree but if Berto had any worthwhile defensive capability, he'd try to at least sidestep when he was being pushed back.
Use the jab to keep Guerrero at bay, staying on the outside etc.
He would try to punch out of the clinch instead of holding on as well and waiting for the ref to break it up.
Berto seems more than comfortable slugging and dirty boxing on the inside. He invites that sort of fight by allowing it to occur.
The guy is very talented but his shortcoming's ultimately fall on his paper chin, and his lack of defense/ring IQ.
So yea the ref was horrible, and Guerrero fought a pretty dirty fight, but Berto didnt do himself any favors...
