Andre Berto Batters Michel Trabant in Six

By Mark Vester

On the undercard of Paul Williams-Carlos Quintana at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California, welterweight contender Andre Berto (21-0, 18 KOs) battered Michel Trabant (43-3, 19KOs) on route to a sixth-round technical knockout.

The damage Berto was inflicting was brutal to watch. Berto's quick uppercuts were knocking Trabant's head all the way back. Trabant stayed on the defensive for the entire fight with Berto landing a variety of punches from all angles 

In the fifth and sixth rounds, Trabant was barely able to land a single punch, he was too busy taking punches to the head. Trabant told the referee after six-rounds that he was no longer willing to continue with the fight. Trabant had never been stopped in his career.
