Andre Berto stops Michel Trabant; Unbeaten Berto makes Trabant quit on his stool
By Phil Santos – Overhandright.com - Andre Berto continues to impress by stopping Michel Trabant. Trabant, who had never been stopped, quit on his stool following the conclusion of round six.

The punctuation of Berto’s attack came in the 3rd round when Berto scored numerous vicious uppercuts.

Berto appears polished and ready to take the next step toward facing serious Welterweight contenders. Andre Berto improves to 21-0 (18) while Trabant falls to 43-3-1 (19).
