Andre Berto's Side Not Interested in Selcuk Aydin Fight

BoxingScene.com was advised by Andre Berto's promoter, Lou DiBella, that there is currently no interest in a fight with Selcuk Aydin (20-0, 15KOs). On Monday, the WBC ordered Berto (26-0, 20KOs) to defend his welterweight title against Aydin, who won the WBC's silver title with a controversial June decision over Ionut "Jo-Jo" Dan. DiBella and Aydin's co-promoters, Don King and Ahmet Öner of Arena Box, have until September 17 to reach a deal before the fight heads to a purse bid.

DiBella says the fight is close to impossible to make because HBO has no interest in approving Aydin as an opponent for Berto's next fight.

"HBO doesn't care about Aydin. And Berto's next fight will be on HBO," DiBella told BoxingScene.com. "And I just watched Aydin's fight with "Jo Jo" Dan and he didn't do any favors for himself with that performance. You can even make an argument that he didn't win the fight. Nobody knows Aydin and nobody cares." 

DiBella would like to place Berto in an HBO televised tripleheader on October 2, but sources have informed BoxingScene that Berto's return may possibly get pushed to a date in November.

Former 140-pound champion Andriy Kotelnik still appears to be a frontrunner to get Berto. I've been told WBA 154-pound champion Cornelius Bundrage turned down the opportunity to fight Berto. Bundrage also turned down a hometown battle with Ronald Hearns, which is a big fight in Detroit.

King promotes Kotelnik, and co-promotes Aydin. Don't be surprised if King makes a deal for Aydin to step aside in order for a Berto-Kotelnik fight to move forward.

He might as well just fight him. It's not like he has a chance to lose. But if not, Kotelnik wouldn't be horrible (there r much better options however). How abou Zavek...? Collazo rematch deserves some milking if u ask me. BTW, Berto won... Only by 1 round, but he won

Berto may smash Aydin. But the one time i saw Aydin on shobox he looked pretty good. It may be a decent fight. I understand Kotelnik just got robbed on HBO but what is the point of fighting a guy with no power and making him come up in weight just so Berto has an opponent that has been seen on...

[QUOTE=vrodz]What else did you expect, boxing 2010 at it's best. BTW, Berto lost to Collazo and was losing to Quintana before he ran out of gas, did not look that impresive againts Forbes or Urango. These are B and a C level Fighters, once he gets in the ring with anyone with a pulse we won't...
