Berto Clears The Air on The Tweets Regarding Victor Ortiz

By Lem Satterfield

A few days ago, the internet was buzzing after former welterweight champion Andre Berto (27-1, 20KOs) posted several statements which, at least to most readers, hinted 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 and won a twelve round unanimous decision to capture Berto's WBC title.

"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.

BoxingScene.com spoke with Berto, who addressed the subject of his tweets about Ortiz, and the public perception that he was accusing him of using performance enhancing drugs.

"Man, there were no accusations at all, man. He came to fight and he was the better man that night. That's it. What did I say? Tell me what did I say? Did I say that this guy was on this or that? What did I say? I didn't say that. But like I said, it really doesn't matter. He came in there and he fought and he won, and I'm going to get back in there and it still looks like that there is a possibility of a rematch soon, so, we'll see what happens," Berto told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=rao007;10642841]Nah, mang...berto's first tweeter reaction is true....i believe it....[B]that Mexi coming in that high after never hydrating that way before?[/B] At least Pacroid uses special blends in order to stay near his usual fighting weight which is 148. Damn that…
