Exclamation Ghost vs Berto done deal for nov 24 on hbo.

WBC welterweight titleholder Robert Guerrero will meet two-time beltholder Andre Berto on HBO on Nov. 24 at The Bank of America Center in Ontario, Calif.


WBC welterweight titleholder Robert Guerrero, of Gilroy, Calif., will face two-time 147-pound beltholder Andre Berto of Winter Haven, Fla., in an HBO-televised clash on Nov. 24 from the Bank of America Center in Ontario, Calif., a fight for which each boxer will receive "a seven-figure pay day," according to Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer.

As part of the deal, both Guerrero (30-1-1, 18 knockouts) and Berto (28-1, 22 KOs) have contractually agreed to mandatory drug testing by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, said Schaefer. Discussions about the clash were originally reported by ***********.com.

"Guerrero verus Berto is done. It's going to happen on Nov. 24 from Ontario, Calif," said Schaefer. "They have a venue called the Bank Center, which is owned and operated by A.E.G., the same people who own The [Los Angeles] Staples Center."

Guerrero, 29, is coming off July's unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Turkish-born Selcuk Aydin (23-1, 17 KOs), having risen two weight divisions in order to make his 147-pound debut for a Showtime-televised bout that transpired before an excited crowd at the H.P. Pavillion near Guerrero's hometown of Gilroy, Calif.

A former IBF and WBC titlewinner, Berto tested positive for the banned substance norandrosterone, forcing the cancelation of a remacth against Victor Ortiz, that was scheduled for June. But in July,* Berto, 29, was granted a one-year license by the California State Athletic Commission to fight in the state after having tested negative for "anabolic steroids and masking agents."

Berto had been hopeful of challenging IBF junior middleweight beltholder Cornelius Bundrage on that date, but has opted to face Guerrero.

Guerrero has won 14 straight fights during a run that has included nine knockouts, and has won six belts over three weight classes. Guerrero last suffered defeat by a split-decision to Gamaliel Diaz in December 2005, but won their rematch with a sixth-round knockout in June 2006.

Before facing Aydin, Guerrero had last been in the ring in April of last year, when he unanimously decisioned Michael Katsidis in a lightweight bout.

In September of last year, Guerrero had arthroscopic surgery which repaired a torn tendon in the rotator cuff of his shoulder. The injury forced him to cancel a bout that was set for August of last year against then-junior welterweight*Marcos Maidana.

Against Aydin, of Hamburg, Germany, Guerrero was fightin in his sixth weight class, having started out as a junior featherweight.

In victory over Aydin, Guerrero placed himself in an elite class of multi-belt, multi-division titlewinners such as Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather, Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya.
From ring.

Should be a great scrap...especially early as Mike usually comes out smokin'. Guerrero showed little pop but a very high work rate. The style clash has entertainment written all over it.

I hope all the adequate testing procedures are in place because notorious steroid abuser Berthoe is going to hulk himself up if given the chance.

If you think this fight is 50/50 you are a dumb ****.
LOL.

Guerro almost ko'd by a WW with Trex arms and a history of fighting bumbs.

There is only one option on the table, Berto KO, the only question is if it comes early or late.

This is boxing. Berto is known to gas and hasn't fought in how long? I don't have much faith in Berto. Guerrero can be crafty. 50/50

Mike always leaves himself wide open and always fights the wrong fight...It could go either way, although Berto's early starts have me leaning toward a KO.

Excellent match-up for both men.

The winner will earn some necessary clout to support their perception which will probably lead to a much bigger immediate opportunity.
