What Katsidis is willing to go through for a win
It is unfair and disrespectful to ever say that a fighter of Guerrero’s caliber and with his resume lacks heart.
The mere fact that Guerrero is willing to step into the ring against a boxers such as Katsidis is stark evidence that he is a brave individual.
But while it is unfair to question Guerrero’s heart, it is not unfair to ask if he has as much heart as Katsidis.
The specter of the Daud Cino Yordan fight continues to hang over Guerrero’s career.
In this fight, Guerrero seemed unwilling to continue after suffering a seemingly non-threatening cut over his eye.
Of course, only Guerrero knows the true severity of the cut, but it is difficult to imagine Katsidis being as eager to stop fighting regardless of the severity of the cut.
Katsidis has shown a willingness to fight through cuts and injuries, while Guerrero has not.
Should the fight become difficult down the stretch, it does not appear that Guerrero will be willing to go to the same extremes as Katsidis.
