Props to Russell for fighting Leonilo that is going to be a good fight. Miranda gave Franco all he could handle and in many eyes he should have gotten the nod. I dont think Russell has the power to stop…

By the looks of the picture, I have a feeling that Andre Berto is going to smash this dude.

Now see what Conte has done with Berto, he's evened out his body and got him off the weights and now he's shaped more like a boxer instead of a bodybuilder Berto already had the power there was no need…
