I’ve got respect for Soto Karass, an honest journeyman. But Berto fighting him is a lame main event for Showtime, which is apparently trying to outdo HBO on the house fighter vs journeyman cherry picking circuit.

Thurman is the Real Deal but i’ve gotta wonder what he’s doing at welter? if this were Canelo there would be dozens of posts condemning him for “cherrypicking” and “avoiding” his 154lb comp. nonetheless, i’m also not gonna make the mistake of underestimating any unknown and “unworthy” Argentinian contenders. there are a lot of formidable (albeit obscure) bulls roaming the Pampas these days.

“Guerrero didn’t do anything special to beat Berto” except DROP him twice during the first two rounds and then proceed to punish him against the ropes for 12 rounds while shrugging off Berto’s flush powershots. nonetheless, Soto-Karass is imminently beatable with just a fundamental degree of boxing skills, e.g., Maidana was able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by resorting to a basic jab(?!?!), which set up his own powershots. that simple adaptation exposed openings in Karass’ virtually non-existent defense. as long as Berto doesn’t get dragged into another brawl, he can win a boring UD v. a guy like Soto-Karass. conversely, Soto-Karass needs to turn this bout into another brawl that will once again nudge Berto beyond his threshold for punishment. IMO, this bout is a toss-up with a slight edge going to Berto.

Now we see how damaged Berto is. Hope not too much for his sake.

Who is the idiot Last time I looked Berto looked like a Haitian ET after Guererro got finish with him but I guess some people think that’s nothing special

Berto vs Soto Karass will be exiting fight.

Thurman needs to change his boxing attire cause he looks extremly lame besides that talented fighter

Depending on how much Berto sucks in with his new trainer and depending on if he still has his whole family in the corner, I will be leaning towards karass in this one
