Andre Berto Mugs German Boxing Tourist Michael Trabant
Michael Trabant’s visit to Jompoc did not go well and he quit in his corner after 6 rounds of a mugging by Andre Berto. Berto’s a growing threat to a division so packed with talent that it scares me. It’s likely to put the betting trade in the unemployment lines. Who would venture a guess on fights that feature Cotto, Mayweather, Kermit Cintron, Paul Williams, Quintana, and more?
I wouldn't look at the Berto-Trabant fight as a romp. Berto was taking a chance in fighting a guy with double the experience than he with his 20 fight record. Berto applied too much forward pressure for the German to deal with and it broke him down.
