ANDRE BERTO WBC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION HOMETOWN: WINTER HAVEN, FLORIDA HEIGHT: 5-9 WEIGHT: 147 POUNDS BIRTHDATE: SEPTEMBER 7, 1983 RECORD: 27-0 (21 KOS) 2004 HAITIAN OLYMPIAN With laser quick hands and thundering power, Andre Berto enjoyed a quick ascent to the top of the boxing world. The former amateur star has racked up 26 wins, 20 coming by way of knockout, and claimed the WBC Welterweight World title in just five years a professional. Since winning the WBC title with a convincing knockout of Miguel Angel Rodriguez on June 21, 2008, the 26-year-old Berto has made four successful title defenses, defeating three former world champions in Steve Forbes, Luis Collazo, and Carlos Quintana along the way. Following the Haitian earthquake on January 12, Andre added the title of humanitarian to his resume. Berto pulled out of the biggest fight of his career, a scheduled match-up with living legend “Sugar” Shane Mosley to travel to Haiti and provide relief to the earthquake victims in his family’s homeland. He returned to the ring in an event billed as “Fighting for Haiti” on April 10, and despite an eleven-month layoff, won a sensational eighth round TKO over Carlos Quintana to move his record to a perfect 26-0.
