Andre Berto-Cornelius Bundrage in Play For November 24

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has confirmed that discussions are ongoing for Andre Berto (28-1, 22 KOs) to face IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius Bundrage (32-4, 19 KOs) in an HBO televised fight on November 24.

Berto, a former two-time welterweight champion, has been inactive since last September's TKO victory over Jan Zaveck. He was scheduled to face Victor Ortiz on two separate dates since the start of this year.

He suffered a bicep injury in the early part of 2012 and the Ortiz rematch was moved to a June date - but the fight was canceled for a second time when Berto failed a voluntary drug test. Berto fought the positive result and he was recently cleared after the California State Athletic Commission ruled in his favor, agreeing that he ingested a contaminated substance.

The activity level of Bundrage is no better, with an average of one fight per year since 2009. In his last fight, he stopped Cory Spinks in the seventh round of their June rematch.

Easy win for Berto. Doesn't pass the 4th round.

I'm down to put a 100 on Berto actually.... waiting to see the odds first though

their styles actually goes well together, neither are technically sound boxers, and both are willing to go to war...I think this could be a very explosive and exciting fight

meaningless fight, but with bundrage's power and his tendency to gas it could be fun.

I'm a believer in 2nd chances and Berto took steroids but this isn't a bad fight at all. I think it will be pretty exciting. Sure the belt is on the line for someone that cheated(remember boxing fans you threw…
