Even Andre Berto might not know what the hell's going on in the continuing Bradley-Berto-Bundrage triangle rumor saga, as the fighter had this to say on Twitter this evening:
Just leaving the gym..... Being hearing a lot of rumors on my next fight. Either way it goes they "Gonna get this work"(Loaded Lux voice)...
Berto (28-1, 22 KO) also indicated that he had no idea about the negotiations for the supposed November 24 HBO fight with Cornelius Bundrage when that first came up, as he learned about it on Twitter via Dan Rafael of ESPN.com. It's always important to remember that quite frequently, fighters are not among the first five, 10, or 20 people to know what their next fight is as soon as it's done - and apparently, nothing here is really done, anyway, although Fight Hype is reporting that Berto-Bundrage is a done deal, and they say they're standing by their source and their story on that one.
The nice thing about all of this is that from Berto's side, he doesn't have a bad option. These are both really good fights. He's got the best of the lot here. If Bradley doesn't fight Berto, it appears he'll have to fight Robert Guerrero (which is its own saga right now) or Ruslan Provodnikov (which just isn't that good a fight overall). If Bundrage doesn't get Berto, well, he's just kind of left out in the cold, which is unfair, since he deserves a good fight, but that's boxing for you.
