By Ryan Burton

Last night Jesus Soto Karass pulled off his second upset in a row by stopping Andre Berto in the 12th round of their highly entertaining battle in San Antonio. Berto entered the fight as nearly a 3-1 betting favorite but Soto Karass had him on wobbly legs throughout most of the evening.

In January Soto Karass surprised many by outboxing the rugged Selcuk Aydin in Las Vegas as the chief support to the the Lucas Matthysse-Mike Dallas fight. Aydin was a 5-1 favorite in that fight.

IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander's manager and trainer Kevin Cunningham was impressed with the Mexican fighter's performance. In fact, he feels Soto Karass deserves a shot at Alexander's title more than Amir Khan who is the frontrunner to face Alexander in December.

"Soto Karass deserve a shot at the welterweight title more than Khan does after his performance tonight. In my personal opinion, I believe Soto Karass has done more in the welterweight division to deserve a shot at Devon's title than Khan," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com

Alexander vs Khan is a better match-up, Alexander vs SK will be a clinch-fest.

I don't know why Cunningham is all of a sudden in the business of determining who deserves a title shot, but... I would say maidana deserves a shot since he beat Soto Karass, although he already got worked by Devon. Let Khan fight either Soto Karass or Thurman, then if he won either of those (of...

[QUOTE=K.Webster]Bradley got a shot at Pac through fighting a shot Casamayor at light welterweight. Should Bradley return the welterweight title considering both his victories at welterweight so far have been utter gifts?[/QUOTE] Bradley fought Abregu at 147 before the Pac fight. That's a soli...
