Ortiz vs Berto II press conference pictures
In what was one of the fights of 2011, Ortiz and Berto duked it out in April for the WBC welterweight belt in a contest that saw both men hit the canvas twice before Ortiz rallied to a unanimous decision win.
With Ortiz having gone on to lose the belt to Floyd Mayweather and Berto having comeback to capture the IBF version of the title the two men return in a joint Golden Boy Promotions, DiBella Entertainment, and Showtime bill titled Ortiz vs Berto II: Repeat or Revenge.
‘I am looking forward to going to this fight,’ said Berto. ‘It’s a fight that I want and it’s a fight the people demanded. I am so hyped and excited to get ready to make another classic, but bottom line Ortiz has to go!’
Ortiz kept his words a lot shorter than his counterpart, taking to the podium to state, ‘I’m prepared to go to war again with Berto.’
