Before you start reading: don't worry, this game is very easy. I'm just detailing everything you might want to know, which will make for a pretty huge solution. First things first: go to the DLC menu and grab the free pack at the bottom. It contains three helmets, one of which (Regal Head) is good enough to use throughout the entire game.

As you play through the campaign, you'll probably pummel every robot in the first circuit without even being downed once, and then you get to Ramchip in the second circuit and won't stand even a little bit of a chance.

What you need to do, and this'll happen against Midas in the final Underworld fight, and several times again in the WRB championship, is to just stop and grind. Go back to earlier fights and get your skills up, so you can buy higher-level gear and raise your BR (battle rating). You don't really need to memorize all the abbreviations and functions of your robot, and learn how to maximize their usage, to win fights; all you need to do is focus on raising that BR.

Here's how to level up each skill easily:

Offense: Just go against an easy bot and pummel him with forward+Y/X. This skill will level up nicely in regular matches without much grinding needed though.
Speed: Just hold LB and keep dodging attacks for as long as you can. Each dodged attack is 70-150 Speed XP. Kong is a good bot to dodge. (If you have Speed 30 and want to raise it even more, you can buy the Agility Modulator (or whatever), which lets you dodge even when you're out of energy.)
Guard: Same as speed, just hold RT to block attacks for as long as you can last. Kong is good here as well, or Metro.
Performance: The easiest skill to level up... Simply mash your d-pad when your opponent is knocked to the ground, performing as many taunts as you can while he's down. Taunts give performance XP. I use the "come here!" taunt as it's fast and spammable.
Destruction: I just bought the Super Hook tech move and used it at the beginning of every match, and as often as possible throughout them, and my Destruction skill is almost as high as Performance, so there should be no need to focus on leveling this.

Note: you do not seem to gain less XP for fighting easy bots, so go ahead and fight the very first few ones for all your grinding needs.

And that's really all you need to know. This game is very simple to beat, and you don't need to be a master boxer to do it. Just keep your BR up by buying all new gear whenever you hit a road block like Ramchip or Midas, then just go in and spam tech moves and random punches and you'll win with ease.

One very easy tactic is to get the opponent on the ground in any way you can, then just spam the Super Hook tech move as he gets up. After he goes down a couple of times, he'll get knocked right back down again when you Super Hook him right after he gets up.

My BR when I beat Underworld was about 2800 and it was not a problem that Noisy Boy (the final opponent in Underworld) has 3400. If he poses a threat, just use the Super Hook spam manouver in the below video. Another tactic that works wonderfully is using paced forward+Y/X punches; not spammed as you'll run out of energy, but well-timed and constant. The AI doesn't really know what to do if you keep punching it in the face. (Video credit to Roy Combs.)
