Undefeated Welterweight Puerto Rican Star 5' 11" Trinidad now (19-0-0 17KOs) just TKO'd top contender Andre Berto who falls to (22-4-0 15KOs) in an exciting 147 lb. matchup that saw both fighters fight in the inside all night long in an action packed fight.
Trinidad is now ranked according to WeBL as the #1 contender for the Welterweight Championship Of The World. Following the fight, his interpreter said "Trinidad just put the whole welterweight division on notice with this performance, he's for real."
Trinidad's handlers have many options, some want him to keep knocking off top 10 contenders at 147 before fighting the champion. Others want him to fight immediately for either the 147 lb title or make a jump to 154 for a title shot there.

Harold "Harry" Angus, who was at ringside for Trinidads bout with Berto, was glowing in his post fight analysis of the new welterweight prospect. He told reporters, "If I could sign the kid he'd be here now. He's the best welterweight contender I've seen in a long time, a fighter who could, quite possibly achieve unparalleled dominance at 147. He beat Berto like no other fighter has done, and he looked spectacular in doing it. Terrific work rate, bravery, stamina, speed...it was all there. I really believe he can carve out a great career at 147 but I would advise him not to move up to light middle unless he's struggling to make the weight. He can be a great champion at 147 and I can see a superfight between himself and El Toro at 153 sometime in 2009."
