As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Andre Berto (28-1, 22KOs) suffered a left arm injury on Monday while training at the Ten Goose Gym in Van Nuys, California. Berto was preparing for his scheduled welterweight rematch with fellow former champion Victor Ortiz(29-3-2, 22KOs). The fight, scheduled for February 11 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, was canceled by Monday night. Berto ruptured his left bicep during a sparring session, and surgery will be required.
"You can only imagine how devastated I am but I know sh*t happens. This is the hurt business, but I'll be back stronger then ever," Berto said.
Before any conspiracy theories begin, Berto released several photos from a local hospital.
