The Haitian boxer was knocked out in the 12th round. This defeat probably marks the end of career for Berto. Aged 29, the Haitian should retire after this defeat to a taste little special.
In his remarks relayed by tout-sur-la-boxe.net, Berto believes that the referee stopped the fight too soon and did not give him a chance to finish the fight, to allow him to have the decision from the three ringside judges.
“From the fourth round, I was hampered by an injury to my right arm. I had to fight with my left arm. I was not able to fight at 100%, which made the fight more difficult. But I’m a boxer and it is the vagaries of my job. I think I had the right to be counted up to eight and not be arrested immediately. Thank you to everyone who supported me for this fight. Injury or not, I tried to do my best in this duel, “said Berto.
