Former WBC welterweight titlist Andre Berto has taken to Twitter today to launch one of those "yo, I'm not saying, I'm just saying, so don't judge me, because I'm not outright saying it, and it's OK if I just hint and nudge and don't say anything specific" attacks on Victor Ortiz. Ortiz beat Berto on April 16. Berto's meltdown is after the jump.
Yo this is the main question I get from fans and boxing people. Did they drug test Ortiz?
Let me clear the air now!! Your right there is a reason why Ortiz had so much energy, a reason he could take my heavy shots and keep ticking
N there is a reason why he came into the ring 165 pounds. I know people close to him and his camp and I know exactly we he was taking
it wasn't Flintstone vitamins!! But it is what it is I should of beat him anyways but it wasn't me that night. Ortiz wasn't him either lol
Lesson learned time to forget about the past and look forward to the future.
Never bitter never sour Ortiz fought a good fight and got the W. I take my L like a man n come back better Iam lookin forward 2 the rematch
Well, it doesn't seem like he's taking the L "like a man," but maybe that's just me. It sort of seems like he's bitter and sour and looking to excuse a bad performance and trying to save face. And if anyone's reputation is taking a hit today, it's Andre Berto's.
Ortiz did respond:
Berto needs to stop I'll have to hurt him again. Me I guess im not too bad for not havin a heart or courage ;)
Well you know what they say: If you can't beat 'em -- oh wait, Ortiz beat Berto.
