    Don't think anyone pulls through with pancreatic cancer unfortunately.

    This guy did and has been in remission for 20+ years

    But I agree this is the exception to the rule.

    Best wishes for Bert here though. His fights with Moorer and Mercer are two of my favourites of the past 30 years.

    Keep fighting Bert, not ready to have the final 10 count just yet.

    Bad news. At his best, a very entertaining fighter with a gift for power. Pulling for him.

    Anyone remember the absolutely brutal Andre McCall bout? Cooper ruined a potential prospect forever that night...

    I hope Bert 'smokes' the cancer like it was a '40-0' bare knuckle boxing champ.

    Hope he pulls through, it's some brutal stuff. He's an ATG entertainer in my book. Love watching his fights, I hope he wins this one

    One of the most deadliest forms of cancer there is. I had a great aunt who died of pancreatic cancer back in 2000. At the time of her death she had whithered away to almost skin and bones. One reason it's so deadl is because it normally isn't caught until it's in the advanced stages.
