Things got a little testy during the recent Los Angeles press conference to announce the rematch between Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto, which takes place on June 23rd at the world famous Staples Center. Ortiz promised his second fight with Berto would still have him as the winner but it would be a much shorter fight than their first twelve round "Fight of the Year" battle. Berto scoffed at Ortiz’s statement that he would knock him out this time around and both traded words during their stare down.

BoxingScene.com caught up with Andre Berto and asked about what he thought about Ortiz declaring the fight would be short and would knock him out. 

“That’s just him. He said the same thing about Floyd. He said the same thing about the last few guys that he lost to. It is what it is” said Berto.

Both fighters are known for packing a punch and proof of that was both of them taking turns tasting the canvas in their first fight. Ortiz has knockdown almost every opponent he’s been in the ring with but Berto isn’t as impressed with his power.

“He has a good punch. I’m not going to say that he has a big punch. He has a good punch. From a few of my other opponents I believe a few who guys punch harder than he did” informed Berto.

Berto has said this fight is personal for him. After all, it was Ortiz who handed him first professional loss and took his world title in the same instance. This fight is so important to him that he vacated his newly acquired IBF Welterweight title in order to make this fight happen. He’ll have his opportunity to avenge his only loss on June 23rd.

berto should be worried. i haven't seen much improvement from him since the first fight.

I just hate that this fight took so long to finally happen. Berto with his facking injuries >_> well, hopefully it turns out to be as good as the first or better. I really don't like either of these guys but I can't deny that I will be tuned in, should be entertaining.

I hope Ortiz is thinking this will be an easy fight for him. I'm sure it's all mind games that he's trying to play, but if he's taking Berto lightly at all, i think Berto will get him. Berto looks like he genuinely dislikes Ortiz now! Looking forward to this one. Man, I even had my flight, hotel...

This is the fight I want to see behind Cotto/May ofcourse. Berto needs to learn how to slip punches instead of sitting there with his hands up. Move that head. Ortiz is a decent puncher and he has knock down power. Not a one punch knock out artist but should be respected.
