Sporting a record of 30-3 with 23 KOs, Berto is a two-time welterweight champion, the interim WBA World Welterweight Champion and the man looking to give Mayweather the first “L” of his incredible career.

So why did Berto chose boxing? “I was a little chubby. I couldn’t kick. I couldn’t roll around.” So his father took him to a gym where he found boxing and the rest is history.
