Andre Berto: I Have No Reason To Fear Kermit Cintron!

By Chris LaBate

A few days ago, former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron appeared on and ripped into WBC champion Andre Berto. Cintron was very angry after reading reports that a deal was being negotiated for Berto to defend his title against 140-pound contender Victor Ortiz on April 16. Cintron has been calling out Berto for a while.

"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 "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].

Berto spoke to Suge Green of OnTheGrind Boxing Radio and replied to Cintron's allegations of running scared and being protected by his manager Haymon.

"I don't have no reason to be scared of Kermit Cintron one bit. He hasn't done anything at all to have me afraid at all. Everybody knows it would definitely be a good fight, but you know he's just basically doing a lot of barking because we're in the same stable," Berto said. "But then again I'm moving and he's staying still. I believe it's a little bit of him being anxious to get back out there, and what better way than start calling people out?

"Kermit knows that he can't really you know, compete. Like I said, he's getting frustrated that his time at the stable is pretty much at a standstill. He just can't really move. I show him a lot of support and I wish him the best."

Andrea needs to step up! She needs to fight somebody who can actually fight back, Ortiz is a 140. Another 140 for Andrea like Urango, shame on Andrea! He questions what Cintron has done, well Andrea, he's fought Margarito twice,…

[QUOTE=Tomasio;9966176][B][I]Just to make it clear, I'm not a Cintrón fan, to Me Cintrón just has a good punch from the outside & has good conditioning, but anybody that fight him inside(body to body) then Cintrón is done cause he can't…
