Andre Berto returns on Saturday night on HBO, facing Robert Guerrero in a welterweight main event, a fight huge for the careers of both men.
"I don't know. I turn into this beast. I turn into this animal. I just wanna just go in there and just take his manhood from him. Everything he stands for. Everything he wants to be. Let's take everything."
After over a year out of the ring due to injuries and a failed VADA drug test (disputed by he and his team), Andre Berto returns to the ring on Saturday night to face Robert Guerrero in a welterweight main event from Ontario, California.
Berto (28-1, 22 KO) was last seen beating Jan Zaveck in a brawl last September before his rematch with Victor Ortiz in February of this year was postponed due to a shoulder injury, followed by their June date being scrapped when Berto failed a drug test for trace amounts of a steroid.
Now he's back in the hunt at welterweight, and his presence is big for the division. He's being promoted by Golden Boy at the moment, which seems likely to become permanent, and has Al Haymon in his corner. If he beats Guerrero, he's in line for just about anything. If Guerrero wins, his stock goes way up. It's a big, big fight for these two, hugely important to their careers.
