Berto is the biggest waste of talent I've seen since Vivian Harris.

Berto is such a disappointment it actually angers me. What a waste of athleticism. Paper chin + ZERO DEFENSE = KO losses. Doomed to forever be a gatekeeper

That was a bullshit count by the ref.

I'm not a fan of Berto, but the guy fought his ass off for 11 rounds with an obvious hurt shoulder, and the bitch ass ref doesn't even give him the courtesy of a 10 count.

I noticed he had a weird count on the Soto Karass knockdown, too... Very fast eight count.

Berto definitely deserved the benefit of a count.

He is exactly what I thought he was during the undefeated start to his career. He was never an elite level fighter and the fact that people still look at him in that light shows you how much an undefeated start can do for a guy's name in the sport.

He is what he is... Athletic and can punch at times, but extremely flawed. Accepting that he is nothing more than a pretty good fighter who usually makes really entertaining fights is key.

Berto has always been a fraud ever since he got his ass kicked by Collazo.

He's got a lot of heart though, he's just not great at boxing.

Action from earlier today. Showtime put on one hell of a card.


-Keith Thurman had his toughest challenge to date. "Thank you San Diego!"

-Fight of the year candidate. Figueroa needs to work on his defense if he wants to be taken serious. Props to Nihito Arakawa.

-Berto needs to go back to the drawing board ... again. I'll give him one more shot before he become DeMarcus Corley. And hes only 29. Sam for Juanama and Chad Dawson. Props to Soto Karass for the win. If Alexander doesn't fight Khan, look for Soto Karass to be his opponent.
