Berto ready for Quintana 


image WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (25-0, 19 KOs) says he wont be taking challenger Carlos Quintana (27-2-0, 21 KOs) for granted when he returns to the ring for the first time in eleven months on April 10th at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. Berto was scheduled to face WBA champ Sugar Shane Mosley in January 2010, but the earthquake in Haiti forced him to withdraw from that bout (Berto tragically lost eight family members in the disaster). Hes a tough veteran, Berto said of Quintana. If you give him too much room or a little too much confidence he will take advantage of that. You have to impose your dominance early. Im in a tough situation. Realistically I train hardest when a lot of people expect me to win. Hes a spoiler and he did the same with Paul Williams and I have to make sure I stay sharp and do a good job and dispose of him.
