Into the Mystic: Jan Zaveck-Andre Berto Preview

On the surface, Andre Berto facing Jan Zaveck Saturday night at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi seemed inevitable. Zaveck is relatively anonymous and has a trinket. Berto is looking to regain hardware and respect. By Michael Nelson of The Cruelest Sport

Ward, Marquez headline busy headline


Marquez, Ward, Froch and Katsidis make this a great weekend for boxing fans.

Andre Berto: The Human Bermuda Triangle of Boxing

By Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport. When it was recently announced that Andre Berto would be defending his Quartermass welterweight title against Freddy Hernandez next month on the undercard of the Juan Manuel Marquez-Michael Katsidis barnburner, it brought Berto–and his career–that much closer to Area 51. Selcuk Aydin, in the running to face Berto, was apparently whisked away by Men in Black, leaving Berto to continue his unusual, and unusually remunerative, livelihood. Read the rest here...

Shane Mosley: Missed opportunities and second chances


Shane Mosley hopes to rebound after "the loss".


Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport recaps last night's welterweight clash between Andre Berto and Carlos Quintana. Andre Berto stopped tricky Carlos Quintana in the 8th round last night to defend his WKRP welterweight title at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Quintana gave Berto, now 26-0 (20), problems early, scoring a clear knockdown within a minute of the opening bell (ruled a figment of the imagination by referee Tommy Kimmons) and jarring Berto with a hard straight left in the second, but, as expected, Berto, younger and stronger, wore him down and scored the TKO win with an explosive finish.

Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport previews Saturday night's welterweight clash between Andre Berto and Carlos Quintana. Welterweight titleholder Andre Berto returns to the ring on Saturday night when he faces well-traveled Carlos Quintana over 12 rounds at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Berto will be making his start since returning from aiding earthquake-ravaged Haiti in January and February. After his humdrum performance against Juan Urango last May, Berto spent the rest of the year feuding via cyberspace with NFL star Chad Ochocinco and haggling about his purse for a possible Shane Mosley fight. When Berto withdrew from the Mosely bout to help those suffering in Port-Au Prince, it put the kibosh on his first step up to the big-time. Read the rest here...

Dan Rafael's Notebook


I encourage everyone to read it this week, as it's filled will all kinds of great material (some of which I may write on independently, once I get the time). Most interesting tidbits: Michael Katsidis may face Robert Guerrero on BAD on March 27; on April 17, a Pavlik-Martinez / Bute-Miranda doubleheader looks likely; and promoters are working on a Darchinyan-Donaire rematch. In his blog, Rafael also mentions the possibility of a Andre Berto-Paulie Malignaggi Haiti benefit fight, Timothy Bradley-Marcos Maidana, and Zab Judah-Carlos Quintana or Victor Cayo.

Matchups being discussed (link to ESPN Insider content)


In Dan Rafael's latest blog entry, he notes that some potentially interesting matchups are being discussed, including Juan Manuel Marquez-Juan Diaz (with a possible Marquez-Barrera rematch if that falls through) and Jermain Taylor-Lucian Bute. He also mentions that Berto-Mosley seems unlikely (not enough extra $$ for the risk of fighting Mosley instead of Collazo, plus he'd have to vacate his belt) and that Tarver actually did not have a rematch clause for the Dawson fight.
