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.

If Berto improves his conditioning and defense he will be a problem from 147-154

very tall tasks...i can't see him changing anytime soon. he seems set in his ways and also seems to be going backwards in those two areas.

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.

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. smile.gif

Yes berto has a lot of holes in his game buy he also has 1 punch ko power. This is a very dangerous fight for any guy from 147-154 cause even though he can't really box or has bad defense he can shut the lights out..

I still believe that if any other fighter other than ortiz gets caught with that god Damn gorilla hook in the sixth they would not have gotten up let alone fought back.

Guzman?! Guzman is still alive? Oh it's career that died. My bad...
mrchitown
Those are 3 interesting matchups for Berto. I'd like to see him in the ring against the ghost.

But I take it none of you have seen the hit list Berto dropped?...He named Cotto, Canelo, Mayweather, & Ortiz

Tru lmao

Still plenty of quality opponent options out there for Berto. I don't get why people thought the steroid thing would kill his career. Boxing has repeatedly shown they could care less lol. As for that wish list however, when I was growing up, and moms asked me about my Xmas wish list, the more extravagant my list was, the more likely I was to get socks and a motherfuckin book! In other words, calm that down Andre. I think Alexander, Guerrero, Ortiz, Peterson, Khan, Garcia, Lopez etc are all real options and he has a legit chance to win either of those fights.

Shit, Gonzales came in over the weight, like he didn't give a damn. Not even Guzman has missed weight by that much. I have no respect for fighters that come in over the weight limit, well if it's over 1 lb of course.

u say book like it's a bad thing. mellow.gif man...i was giving all the kids in my family a toy and a book. i thought i was doing something good. laugh.gif

of that list....ortiz, khan and lopez are the only ones i give him a shot against. like someone else said...he does have that one punch equalizer...but alexander, guerrero, peterson and garcia ain't that easy to hit.

yeah, i didn't like that shit. pillsbury dough boy lookin muhfucka! they should have fined him and cancelled his fight. same with broner...posting pics and shit on twitter. show the sport some respect. there's a reason they have weight classes. unprofessional, no discipline having asses....

Please dont tell me that you really did that. Man, you have GOTS to be on one of those kids' shit list, and you probably have no idea either. laugh.gif It's similar to having those fight parties at your crib, and a dude brings a case of Red Dog, but he's trying to drink up all of the top shelf shit. Lol. You know not to invite that dude over again...the same way those poor kids know not to get excited when they see a gift to them with your name on it. Shame on you man, shame on you nono.gif

I felt the same way. While these retard fans are out here vandalizing Sergio's Prius or Jeep (or whatever that was), those same fans need to be in the parking lot waiting with a 2x4 to go across the heads of these fighters purposely not making weight. That's a cardinal sin in the sport, and a slap in the face to know that they'll lose out on a little bit of money, but can go through with the fight

PS: Here comes the hypocrisy in 5,4,3,2,...If Julio happens to not make weight, then THAT fight needs to still take place THAT day. This is coming from a ticket buyer, a flight ticket buyer, and a hotel room "reservationist". Too much has been put in to it, hmm...now that I think about it, I wonder how other fans would feel if a fight was canceled and they paid for the same shit that I paid for? Selfish boxing fan I am? Possibly laugh.gif

hypocrisy at it's finest....but i get it.
