By Michael Campbell

Former two-time welterweight champion Andre Berto (28-3, 22KOs), 29-years-old, was stopped for the first time on Saturday night, after Jesus Soto Karass caught him with a hard left hook in the twelfth round of their exciting battle at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. That defeats marked Berto's third loss in his last four fights.

Golden Boy Promotions' VP and head matchmaker Eric Gomez believes Berto, because of his exciting style, can still be a player in the welterweight ranks

"No matter what you say about Andre Berto, he is a tough guy and he makes great fights....even the ones he lost. He comes to fight, he makes great fights. To be able to be in that ring and give performances like that, you can only give him respect. It's up to him [on what he wants to do next]. He's still young. It's up to his management to talk to him. If he wants to come back, we'll talk to him and see what we can do," Gomez said.

He should hire a new trainer. Maybe Floyd Sr or Garcia.

Ortiz is still too woman for him to try and avenge. Can go back to fighting bums though. That'd be good for him. He can still pretend he's elite.

[quote=Big Lou] Wow, i guess if a fighter gets the **** beat out of him every fight, he gets TV dates. What is boxing coming to. [/quote] same as it has always been. Gatti wasn't a star because of his pure boxing ability. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android
