This Saturday, welterweight titleholder Andre Berto (27-0, 21 KOs) of Winter Haven, Fla. makes his 2011 debut against fast-rising challenger Victor Ortiz (28-2-2, 22 KOs) of Oxnard, Cal.
The 27-year-old Berto efficiently defended his title last November with a first-round TKO of Freddy Hernandez, and will be counting on his trademark lightning-fast hand speed and explosiveness in this sixth title defense.
Making his first title bid in the talent-rich division, the 24-year-old Ortiz will seek to counter Berto’s ferocity with devastating knockout power. Having defied long odds to become an elite fighter, he wants to prove he is the one to beat at 147 pounds.
Lucky for you, CraveOnline has a brand-new Everlast boxing glove signed by both Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz!
