Lost in the Funhouse: Victor Ortiz W12 Andre Berto

A sharp and focused Victor Ortiz thrashed Andre Berto in a savage—if slightly one-sided—bout, on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort & Casino, scoring a unanimous decision over 12 grisly rounds in a fight that featured multiple knockdowns. Final scores were 114-111, 115-110, and an imprecise 114-112. With the loss, the parallel universe career of Andre Berto gets its first does of reality in years. Somehow Berto, who is more Quiznos than caviar, became a meal ticket for Al Haymon and Lou DiBella, despite the fact that Berto has long been little more than a figment of the feverish HBO imagination.
