And besides the dumb, roid screw-up… By all accounts he’s otherwise, a really good guy.

Godspeed Andre!… A great talent and one of the real class acts of boxing. He made a great move in June 2013, choosing Virgil Hunter as his trainer… It’s a good fit… Too bad the just didn’t have enough time together for Hunter to properly adjust, and better hone Andre’s considerable, natural skills before the Soto-Karass bout. Now that Andre will be 100% they WILL have time, I for one can’t wait for the rematch. Should be epic!

Wish Berto a full recovery although he may not have much a chance at the elite levels. Fighting with a severe and incapacitating shoulder injury for 12 rounds is something I would not wish upon any boxer. It’s always better when fighters lose exclusively due to being bested on skills and not to have injuries which prevent them from at least performing at their max.

does this mean more shoulder roll next fight i hope?

Andre Berto needs a trainer like Kevin Rooney. Seriously, the peak a boo style, custamato technique will work for him. Andre Berto’s defense needs significant improvement if he wants to compete with elite fighters and he does not know how to counter effectively, which also needs to be worked on.

I’m not condoning steroids, but Berto is far from the only one in the sport who has used, or is using steroids. The other ones just weren’t, or haven’t been caught.

Geeze, what’s up with the mean-spirited comments? How can anyone talk crap about Berto? I mean what’s not to like? After all, you can always count on him to provide plenty action and drama — he never disappoints!

Please retire, you’re a bum after you weaned of the steriods

Berto should take enough time off to let the arm heal. Even though he was fighting with essentially one arm for 6 or 7 rounds, the scores were pretty even with Soto-Karass before he got KO’d. And while Soto-Karass is not a world-beater, he is a solid fighter.

flash knock down

Hey Berto I hope you heal well and you can get back to being the fighter you were. I have a suggestion before you fight again get rid of your family and friends that want your money. I know they are killing you just tell them to get lost you don’t own them nothing. It’s not the trainer it’s your family that is dragging you down. To fight at the level you have been fighting at you have to be 100% focused about winning not thinking who is going to ask you for more money.You are young and you may not see what I am saying right now but if you don’t do what I am telling you . You will never be at or near the top again.

As far as PED’s go, you’re a fool if you don’t think the ones getting caught are the tip of the iceberg.

Posted August 16, 2013 8:27 am 


Get well Andre.I hope you can once again become competitive to mix with the best of the new up and coming welterweights.

Posted August 16, 2013 3:44 am 


Maybe now he’l can actually hold it up high enough to protect himself when he tries that stupid shoulder roll defence thing.

Surgery cant repair a body from years of steriod abuse! Hope berto can have a health and steriod free remainder of his career

It’s me, moron, you sure know about personality implant not working, and you know it by personal experience. A$shole.

Andre Dirrell’s testicle insertion surgery didn`t work.

Posted August 15, 2013 10:38 pm 

It’s Me, Ernie

I think I recall reading that your personality implant didn’t take…

Posted August 15, 2013 9:01 pm 


Has anybody ever read where they said the so called surgery on anybody wasn’t successful?

Posted August 15, 2013 8:51 pm 

hit and slip

When hes flipping pancakes at the pancake house that surgery will help lots.

Posted August 15, 2013 8:04 pm 


Of course it matters to him.

Posted August 15, 2013 7:54 pm 


Does it really matter? Unless he gets the right people around him his career is over.

Posted August 15, 2013 7:00 pm 

It’s Me, Ernie

Speedy recovery Andre…
