Berto Eyes Ortiz, Guerrero Revenge - Wants Mayweather

By Luis Sandoval

Andre Berto is a man on a mission and getting back to the top is the ultimate goal. Berto has made drastic changes to his team, both training and business wise, as he vows to not take any more step backs from here on in.

Berto is slated to face hardnosed Jesus Soto Karass this summer as it will be his comeback fight after his defeat to Robert Guerrero this past November. While Berto is moving on with his career, the former champion still wants to have a chance to avenge the two losses on his record against Guerrero and Victor Ortiz.

“Yeah, definitely. I come from a place where we're real men's men. Anybody that knows my family, knows that we're tough guys. I rather of course than go through this fight here, really just back track and have those fights with Ortiz and a fight with Guerrero just to clean that sh*t up and then go in there and go after the big man” Berto would tell BoxingScene.

The big man is of course is pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Berto’s losses prevented him from getting an opportunity to face Mayweather as it was both Ortiz and Guerrero who signed up to fight Floyd instead. Despite his missed opportunities, Berto feels things happen for a reason and he promises not to let a third opportunity get away from him.

“Yeah man, twice! Twice now [Mayweather has] got away from me but like I said, everything's a learning process. Everything happens for a reason and it all probably happened just so I can get back to where I need to be. Refocus, work on different things and make the changes that I made. But I promise you there won't be a third time. I promise you that so we're going to get to it. Best believe” said Berto.

Andre Berto hopes to end 2013 on a high note and get right back in the mix of things and he hopes to land rematches with prior foes and is targeting the king of the division.

FLOYD vs BERTO...Good fight to watch (shoulder to shoulder).

Berto was exposed by Callozo and at that point should have made major canges as someone said before. He is a one deminsional fighter so unless he improves his left hand, defense and stops falling into his opponent every time…
