Once upon a time Berto was on his way to getting his big fight that would change his life. But since Nov 2010 hes fought 2x for a total of 17 rounds. Not to mention coming off of a reaccuring injury. If I was Khan, Alexander, Ortiz, or any of those guys on the verge of a big fight with Floyd or Manny before the retire, I would be beating on Bertos door (like Ali did to Sonny Liston back in day). We all know boxing is about timing, in and out of the ring, and right now Berto seems prime an ready to be knocked off. And with the suspension too he has to lacking in confidence right now. According to Bertos twitter his teams working on a possible title shot in November. Could be Paulie, Guerrero, or Bradley.

A Bradley fight would be a stretch, in regards to making it happen. Paulie or Guerrero are good choices. I believe Berto will gravitate towards Guerrero, since he has that useless belt that seems to make him think a Floyd fight is attached to it.

I see Berto having a lot of respect for Paulie, and that fight almost makes no sense. I see Berto having that fire in his eyes, with all intentions of knocking Guerrero down a couple of notches. Either way, beggars cant be choosers...and Berto and Guerrero are in the same boat.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) the hate for guerrero is strong in u.

i think that's a good fight. if guerrero should beat berto...which i believe he will...would that be enough for him to get a shot at floyd? that green belt happens to be his ticket to a mandatory shot at floyd. we all know how the business goes...floyd is going to vacate before he defends...but i can't knock guerrero for trying.

which belt does paulie have?

Lol, I only hated him during his resting period in the sport, when he called out 50k fighters. Seriously though, he needs this Berto fight, and Berto just needs a fight, period. Lol

If Berto catches Guerrero early, then that may be it. He has to get that respect from Robert, because Robert's on a mission. Anyhow, you already explained the deal with Floyd vacating and so forth, we all know how that goes.

I believe Paulie has the WBA title.

i seem to recall something about guerrero balking at malignaggi. that's a little suspect. if thinks he can beat floyd...then he should have no problem getting past a guy like paulie.

i wouldn't mind seeing a fight in any combination of those three. guerrero/berto/malignaggi. hell...i'll throw in two other names for good measure....khan/guzman. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
