so excuse me if I don't highly rate Berto.
Good fighter? Yep. Decent skills. Fast hands. Good power. Terrible footwork. Poor defense and questionable stamina.
Now I do favor him over the ghost, only because I think Robert is in over his head. He's never fought a real welterweight before and never felt this kind of power.
He did not get beat up by Ortiz he lost a close fight in which both were dropped hard
