Former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (32-3, 28KOs) has fired off a vicious verbal assault after hearing the news that promoters Lou DiBella and Richard Schaefer, the CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, are discussing a possible fight between WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (27-0, 21KOs) and top-rated 140-pounder Victor Ortiz (28-2, 22KOs). For the last few weeks, Cintron has been pushing the envelope for a shot at Berto's title.
"It just shows to everyone in boxing how much of a p*ssy 'Berta' is. Now he's looking at another 140-pounder, but this time it's a young buck who can't really defend himself. 'Andrea' will continue to suck [manager] Al Haymon's d**k, as long as Haymon gets him the 'easy way out' fights," Cintron said to BoxingScene.com. "No one wants to see 'Berta' fight anyone but me. I've been calling him out for a while and three times personally with [manager] Josh [Dubin].
"I would think that a fighter coming to your face and calling out would make him say to himself 'damn, this dude just came to me and called me out' and he would said 'okay, let's do it.' I know I would give the person a shot because he was man enough to come to me about it. 'Berta' is a b*tch ass p*ssy. I would give him the world title for being the p*ssy, coward he is."
