Andre Berto (28-2, 22 KOs) is an explosive fighter who throws quick burst of combinations to his opponents. Berto has decent footwork and can also be elusive at times. In his last fight he was unable to do just that against the Former Welterweight champion Robert ”The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KOs). Guerrero kept constant pressure on Berto, staying in his chest, not allowing him to use his speed to pot-shot from the outside to setup effective combinations. This was only his second lost of his career. Now lined up to fight Jesus Soto Karass (27-8-3, 17 KOs) for the vacant NABF Welterweight Title Live on Showtime July 27th at the AT&T Center in San Antonio , TX; who is by the way a quality fighter that has been in the ring against quality ppposition. If he should win this fight in good fashion against Jesus Soto Karass, Andre Berto will not only grab another belt in the victory but show the boxing public it can be done, getting him back on track to move forward with his career.
Jesus Soto Karass (27-8-3, 17 KOs) is an in your face pressure fighter who comes forward like a Machine, throwing heavy to the body working behind his jab. Coming off a win against Selcuk Aydin (24-2, 17 KOs) in a 10 round Majority Decision shows that Jesus Soto Karass is a fighter that can shine on July 27th. This is a fight that is good for him giving his style of boxing. As we saw in the Berto vs Guerrero fight, Jesus Soto Karass needs to stay on Andre Berto getting in his chest not allowing him to get off, we may get deja-vu. If Jesus Soto Karass wins by putting on an excellent performance with his onslaught of nonstop punches he will put his name on the map for bigger fights!
This is a pivot for both fighters in their careers, a win earns dividends and a loss gives them an overdraft.
