Berto’s muscle mass is one of the main reasons he tires, besides the poor defense isn’t much help either…

Berto is not muscle bound… He just can’t box.

…… “Robinson did not lift weights and was not muscular, but could flatten you with one shot.”

I remember one 1-punch KO… Even Floyd has a couple of those.. Robinson couldn’t hurt Joey Maxim or Ralph Jones.. Ray punched himself out vs Maxim and ran all night vs Jones — getting his ass kicked all the way.

Berto is muscle bound. Stop with the weights. His movements are not fluid. He is as stiff as a board and has little head movement because of his thick neck muscles. Robinson did not lift weights and was not muscular, but could flatten you with one shot. Berto is damaged goods and on the road to pugilistic dementia – this is a good time to call it a career.

Doing barbell bench presses locks your wrists and is tough on the shoulders… Boxers should do dumbbell presses because they isolate the punching muscles better and you turn your wrists in a natural punching motion with better extension and better distance on each rep.

“Also, generally speaking, lifting weights doesn’t cause injury. Improperly lifting weight can. There’s a right way and a wrong way to do the bench press, but that’s definitely one weight lifting exercise, that if not done properly, will tear up a rotator cuff in short time.” – Hildago is correct. I tore my rotator cuff lifting, but this was after years of lifting weights properly. Then one time I did it wrong and it got tore the hell up.

I would think Conte should be some how looked into or possibly avoided. He handled Donaire, Berto and Ward and all of them had shoulder injuries. He is definitely not doing something right.

Thanks Hildalgo, I don’t know much about steroids…

Berto WILL be back… Back on the canvas.

Ernie, steroids may build up your muscular mass but cannot provide proportionate strength to your tendons and ligaments. which means, they weaken and users often suffer from ligament tears and ruptures.

How about chin surgery..

Yeah right, there was no crack back then, unless you consider your mothers, which was always open for the fleet…

Berto will be back!

Posted August 13, 2013 4:23 am 


Just bad genes enema schnozzle… And the fact that your mother got high on crack when you were in the womb.

But if it was one or two of Conte’s clients who had problems It wouldn’t be weird.. It’s 5 top boxers that have gone with Conte and they all go on the shelf with shoulder injuries..

It’s like 5 brothers all winning lottery jackpots in consecutive years.

It’s Me, Ernie

I have torn my left cuff to shreds yet the surgery ten years ago brought it almost all the way back luckily. Ruptured my right Achilles twice but not so lucky with that. Weird, I have NEVER taken steroids of any kind, yet I have had tendon/muscle issues and have never met Conte or the cnut Tark…

This fight should have been an eye opener for berto. He was doong great with the jab, gey better, come back and use that jab the same way.

Posted August 13, 2013 12:36 am 


Berto, LAY OFF THE BENCH PRESS!! I guarantee the number 1 reason his shoulder is always bothering him is his obsesssion with lifting weights.

It’s boxing not bodybuilding, all those muscles aren’t helping.

I see Good

Speaking of TORN ROTATOR CUFFS. I torn BOTH of mine . I have NEVER been the same, I have LOST 30% movement. I shoulder I cant raise past my my jaw. So berto is finish. He was done anyway. Once you go under the KNIFE you are NEVER EVER 100% again. I also had a ALC and I wear a brace. Doctors said I would be fine. Thats a lot of crap.

Hidalgo…., I wouldn’t trust Victor Conte as far as Paulie Malignaggi can throw Nicolai Valuev.

Fo sho….bro

you need your own little gossip corner …..

Posted August 12, 2013 7:26 pm 


Get as far away from Victor Conte as you possibly can … and stay away.”

Tark, did you see the news yesterday regarding A-Rod? He secretly met with Conte in the Fall of 2012. Conte claims A-Rod just popped up out of nowhere, asked to meet with him, and didn’t ask him for anything illegal. A-Rod claimed that he was secret about it because he didn’t want his teammates to get the wrong idea. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……..

A new skill set is what he needs … John David Jackson ..Box like Meldrick Taylor …& Niccolino Locche …………..

Berto has lost his last 2 bouts since getting busted for steroids. No roids = empty shell. And I don’t buy the torn rotator cuff injury excuse for his loss to Soto Karass. There’s a huge range of severity wither these injuries and often boxers elect to not do surgery, instead favoring rest to heal up.

irishny has the beat fo sho…

Rudy the Ram

I can’t see him fighting anyone of importance. it’s such a dramatic fall from being the favorite in his fight vs. Ortiz, to 2 straight losses against fighters moving up from 140. His name isn’t valuable enough for a young guy like Bronner or Thurman to risk their 0. Even though he was stopped late against Soto Karass and made it through to the final bell in the Guerrero fight, he took a beating in both.

He needs chin surgery.

Berto has to stop taking any supplements whatsoever… Don’t trust any supplements. Just concentrate on getting the best nutrition from whole, fresh, natural, organic foods. The best money can buy.

Get as far away from Victor Conte as you possibly can … and stay away.
