Ortiz vs Berto II: Official Fight Poster For the Rematch

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

On February 11, live on Showtime from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto will stage a rematch of their acclaimed 2011 battle. Here's the official poster.


Thanks to Fight Hub TV (Facebook / Twitter / Site) for the poster.

This is a fight I feel is sort of flying under the radar right now, but I'm expecting there to be some buzz around it when fight week comes. The first fight was truly fantastic, a legitimate Fight of the Year contender in 2011, and there's no reason at all to think they can't repeat that. Neither fighter has much defense and I think you're always going to see a shootout with these two guys.

Showtime has promoted the fight well on the network, and pushed it very hard during the free preview weekend. I really hope this fight gets the attention it deserves. I almost feel like even a lot of the people who normally would care are sleeping on this one.
