Rumble on the Reservation

If you’re not excited about this Saturday’s Andre Berto vs. Juan Urango fight at Hard Rock Live, you’re (A) not into sports and (B) not proud of the 305. Winter Haven-born, Miami-raised Andre Berto is not only the undefeated WBC welterweight champion but also incredibly personable and down-to-earth. In short, this is an athlete you can root for without reservation, and this Saturday, he’s fighting in his home state for the first time in his professional career, against Juan Urango, a junior welterweight who’s moving up one division. Though Urango was a strong puncher for his natural weight class, he should be out-matched by the thicker and battle-tested Berto, whose Haitian roots should bring out a raucous hometown crowd. Forget ordering this one on Pay-Per-View; you’ll want to see it in person.
