Sources: Berto vs. Guerrero Discussions Are Heating Up

By Rick Reeno

Several sources are indicating that discussions are heating up for a welterweight fight between former champion Andre Berto (28-1, 22KOs), and WBC interim-welterweight champion Robert Guerrero (30-1-1, 18KOs).

As reported last week, Berto is slated to return on November 24th on HBO. He was originally being positioned to challenge Cornelius "K9" Bundrage for the IBF junior middleweight title, but there were issues with finalizing the fight.

Guerrero's camp was attempting to secure a fight with WBO champion Timothy Bradley on December 15th, but those discussions were short-lived.

Berto usually takes fights were the fighter is one or two weight classes smaller so this doesn't surprise me at all.
