The anticipated welterweight rematch between Andre Berto (28-1, 22KOs) and Victor Ortiz (29-3-2, 22KOs) will indeed receive a new date, according to Berto's promoter Lou DiBella. On January 30th, Berto suffered a left arm injury while training at the Ten Goose Gym in Van Nuys, California. Berto was preparing for the rematch with Ortiz, previously set for February 11th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. During a sparring session, Berto injured his left bicep.

DiBella told BoxingScene that a possible date in late June "sounds about right."

They first clashed on April 16th at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Both boxers were knocked down twice in a twelve round brawl. Ortiz won a unanimous decision. The first fight was televised by HBO, but their network rival Showtime has secured the rights to the rematch.

"The rematch will happen. Berto will not require any surgery. Berto-Ortiz will take place in about four months. There will not be any interim fights. They are going straight into the rematch," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

So Berto' s beat down is gonna be postponed. Fu*k him Victor, move on. Looks like Berto has a ready made excuse when he gets beat down again, so he can say he wasn't himself again

The injury must not be that bad if it'll be healed in time for training. That pic of Berto did seem to indicate an injury though, but maybe they were just playing it safe. Better safe than sorry I guess. Winner won't get a shot at Floyd, since I think Ortiz will win again...and if Berto wins, ...

Screw this fight Make the Ghost vs Ortiz and put it on the undercard to Cotto vs Floyd. Cinco De Mayo all out war.

So now I don't think his injury is that bad since he doesn't want to have surgery and they're talking about having it in 4 months

[QUOTE=garfios]What would happen with Lara vs. Hearns?[/QUOTE] Would be nice to see Showtime do a triple header on Feb. 18. Could be another co feature for the Cloud v Campillo fight along with Pwill v Ishida.
