Few, if any, are giving Andre Berto a chance in his welterweight title fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. James "Buster" Douglas — the man responsible for pulling off perhaps the greatest upset in boxing history when he knocked out Mike Tyson in to become heavyweight champion — thinks Berto has the tools and mindset to pull off the miracle at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Showtime pay-per-view.
He can't let up at all. He has to believe in himself and let his hands go. He has the ability, just don't get psyched out and fight his fight. Got to just stay within yourself and believe in yourself and just go out there and avoid all those distractions which there are going to be tons. He has nothing to lose. He definitely has a shot. He may just succeed in overcoming and he will definitely step up to the challenge. If Berto manages to shake up the sporting world and beat Mayweather, it would be a towering achievement.
I wasn't even given a chance. Even if the odds are what they are, I wasn't even on the books. In an open workout and meet with reporters last week, Russell — as he did nearly a year to the day — spoke about fighting in his backyard. I just need to focus on what the objective is. We never magnify the events. But to leave a legacy behind as one of the great champions from the DMV — and for the MGM National Harbor to become a national stage for boxing — it will require more than an annual event.
