Had Khan won, he was the only one available for a fight in December, but he didn't. Oh well.
One thing that I suggest is that you Floyd fans need to start looking at the fighter's accomplishments at their respective division before you go ahead and shoot out numbers such as "Berto was #2WW". That was Ortiz's only fight at WW and went life and death with him ... yet he was ready for Floyd?
Also, people here were complaining about Berto's resume for one. Secondly, Ortiz went life and death with Berto. Berto had no defense in that fight .... so Ortiz exposed that and won. If Berto had better defense that could have gone the other way just like last night. Ortiz is now 1-2 in 3 WW fights!!! Ortiz was young enough to have taken a few more fights at WW.
Floyd likes to fight them while they are still wet behind the ears at WW. Khan would have made it 5 of 8!!!!
