DiBella: Ortiz Must Get Drug Tested For a Berto Shot

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Lou DiBella wants to be clear on this topic. He’s not accusing Victor Ortiz of doping. He’s not making that accusation. He doesn’t think Ortiz is guilty of using performance enhancing drugs. But he will not allow Andre Berto, a fighter he promotes, to face Ortiz again in a rematch unless both fighters conform to some pre-fight requirements.

“I would not make the fight without Olympic style drug testing,” DiBella said. “Yeah we want the fight, and we’d demand the same drug testing that just happened in the Mayweather fight.”

Ortiz won an entertaining decision against Berto on April 16 with both fighters touching the canvas. The win catapulted Ortiz to a mega-fight with Mayweather on Saturday. That bout had the makings of a mismatch before Mayweather landed what some perceived as a legal sucker punch, stopping Ortiz at 2:59 of the fourth round.

I can't believe you guys are protesting against this. Let Berto and Ortiz alone for a moment and think about it. It just sounds stupid to go against it. If more fighters/promoters or even the commission would press for ODST to be a standard in boxing then we wouldn't be in this mess to begin with...

[QUOTE=Leohappy]i don't know what they are trying to prove. there is an old saying in boxing where the boxer is as good as his last fight. ortiz came into the berto fight stronger, very motivated, and with a good game plan. in the floyd fight, he didn't. like his ex.trainer said, ortiz is emoti...
