Andre Berto Vs Cornelius Bundrage looking set for November 24th!

Andre Berto.
According to reports, former two-time world champion Andre Berto is looking very likely to face the IBF light-middleweight world champ, Cornelius Bundrage, on November 24th. This has not been confirmed yet, but have revealed that discussions are ongoing and if the fight does happen, it will be televised live on HBO.

Cornelius 'K-9' Bundrage.
Now, to be honest with you, I really want this fight happen. I've never really paired these two guys together, but now the idea has been proposed, I think it could end up being a really good fight, not only for the fans but also for the fighters. Both men have been very, very inactive recently. Berto hasn't fought since last September when he TKO'd Jan Zaveck and Bundrage hasn't only fought once a year since 2009. So, the point I'm trying to get across is that, both fighters will take this fight without any doubts. Berto is obviously a very talented fighter and I'm sure that he will firmly believe that he can beat Cornelius Bundrage. And to be honest with you, I think Bundrage will want this fight even more. He has been calling out lots of top-level fighters recently and telling them to give him the shot he so desperately deserves and a fight against Berto is a very good opportunity for him to prove how good he is.

You must also remember that Bundrage has just signed with a new promoter, so if he asks for a fight at the moment there's going to be a big chance that he gets it as his promoter will be looking to get in his "star fighter's" good books.

The fight hasn't been confirmed yet but negotiations are taking place right now so if all goes well, we should hear more about this fight in the next few days.
