Victor Ortiz-Andre Berto rematch slated for April 30

New, comments

The long-awaited rematch of the 2011 Fight of the Year is scheduled to take place next month.

Victor Ortiz said in a recent interview that Andre Berto would get the rematch he's been looking for and he seems to be a man of his word as the fight has been announced for April 30th. And what better place to stage a rematch of the 2011 Fight of the Year than the StubHub Center in Carson, California -- a venue known for hosting some of the best action fights in recent years.

The first meeting between Ortiz and Berto was about a dramatic as they come, with Ortiz winning a decision to take Andre Berto's WBC belt which would then propel him into a lucrative fight with Floyd Mayweather. Ortiz-Berto was riddled with back and forth action which saw both men hit the deck twice in the fight. They also swapped knockdowns in the 6th round which went on the become a nominee for the 2011 Round of the Year.

Now, several years later, with both men suffering some losses, they both have been looking for their next notable fight. Well here it is. And It goes down April 30th on FOX, starting at 5pm EST.

Who do you like in the rematch, fans?
