Berto/Haymon Make Deal With DiBella, Paves Way For K9

By Rick Reeno

The dispute over which promoter is representing Andre Berto is finally settled - at least for his next fight. During the last few days, both Golden Boy Promotions and Lou DiBella were claiming to represent the former welterweight champion.

DiBella has advised BoxingScene.com that he reached an agreement with Berto, and the boxer's manager Al Haymon, to step aside for Berto's next ring appearance - and allow Golden Boy to promote the fight. DiBella was assured that he would continue working with Berto in the future.

"I made a deal with Andre, and his manager, to step aside for this fight. I think it's a great opportunity for Andre and I won't stand in his way. I'm happy with the deal and I will be working with Andre in his future fights," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

Golden Boy's CEO, Richard Schaefer, previously advised BoxingScene that he was looking at the possibility of matching Berto (28-1, 22KOs) against IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (32-4, 19KOs) in an HBO televised fight on November 24th. In the televised co-feature, Sharife Bogere and Richard Abril would collide for the vacant WBA lightweight championship.

Dibella doesn't have a contract with Berto, so he couldn't stand in the way.
