I am hearing July 26th on HBO PPV for Margarito vs. Cotto, and i think this would be an awesome scrap to have on the undercard. These two are #1 and #2 ranked with the IBF so it all makes sense.

What are your thoughts on this fight? I think id favour Clottey in a very entertaining fight.

That would be a good fight , i think i would lean toward Berto though. It wouldn't be an easy fight for either guy.

berto would have to scrap his other hbo date for this one but it would be great because it would be for the ibf title and I think berto wins in a hard tough fight.

That would be a good fight. I like Berto. But he needs to be careful. Clottey is a big welterweight. Berto can't afford to have many defense lapses against him.

Clottey is a solid welter. He isn't necessarily great at anything but he's good at just about everything. I want to favor Berto, but I can't shake the visions of him eating leather and going down against far lesser opponents than Clottey.

Clottey UD.

I agree. I think Clottey hits hard enough to hurt and maybe stop Berto if he's not careful. But I would go with Berto on points

Berto is a sensational young fighter, but Clottey will be tough for him. I see this as a legit 50-50 fight.

Boxrec has Berto fighting Miguel Rodriguez next which is a fight I've been wanting to watch. Berto vs Clottey? I'm going to have to go with Clottey based on experience for now.

We all know now he can beat the lesser guys at 147. Clottey is considered one of the mid level welterweights, along with collazo and stuff. I'm going out on a limb and saying berto will win against all the welters except for cotto and floyd, and possibly margy. But Since andre is so young, he may get away with never having to fight them.

I think right now Berto wouldnt be able to handle Clottey.. Clottey is a very good welter, I believe he would beat Cintron, Quintana and Williams, and well he gave Margy a tough fight last time.

This fight is hard to pick right now. I got to put some thought into in.

I can't see Berto beating Clottey yet. There's just no way. Clottey likes to punch and Berto doesn't like to defend.
