Andre Berto's Allegations About Victor Ortiz Create Drama

By Chris LaBate

Former welterweight champion Andre Berto (27-1, 20KOs) created shockwaves when he took to his Twitter page on Wednesday and posted several statements which hint at the possibility of Victor Ortiz (29-2-2, 22KOs) using performance enhancing drugs for their April fight. Ortiz, who moved up from junior welterweight, appeared to be the bigger and stronger man in the fight. They traded knockdowns but Ortiz rallied in the later rounds win a twelve round unanimous decision. Berto's questioned Ortiz's performance, energy in the fight, and his heavy weight after being rehydrated.

"Yo, this is the main question I get from fans and boxing people. Did they drug test Ortiz? Let me clear the air now! You're right, there is a reason why Ortiz had so much energy, a reason he could take my heavy shots and keep ticking. [And] there is a reason why he came into the ring [at] 165-pounds. I know people close to him and his camp and I know exactly [what] he was taking. It wasn't Flintstone vitamins! But it is what it is. I should of beat him anyways but it wasn't me that night. Ortiz wasn't [himself] either," Berto wrote. 

"Never bitter, never sour. Ortiz fought a good fight and got the W. I take my L like a man [and I'll] come back better. I am looking forward to the rematch."
