Pac's prone to getting hit by uppercuts, a forte of Berto's.
But on the otherhand your right about Berto's footwork being slack, however fighting southpaws b2b has contributed towards him looking sloppy. His stamina has improved now that he's got a proper nutritional diet and conditioning system in place.
In all honesty it be a great fight for the most part, if Berto gets past Ortiz. If Pac beats Berto I would rank it above his wins over Margarito, past prime Mosley, Clottey and a damaged Cotto in all honesty.
Margarito and Mosley, absolutely. Clottey and Cotto though, not a chance in my mind. Berto would have to knock Ortiz out within 6 rounds and Pac would have to turn around and stop him in a couple rounds for me to say that.
I don't think Berto's stamina is improved at all. He was already gassing against Zaveck when that fight was stopped.
