Undefeated welterweight titleholder Andre Berto (24-0, 19 KOs) delivers devastating knockout power with exceptional boxing skills and electrifying charisma. The 25-year-old native of Winter Haven, Fla. defeated veteran Steve Forbes in late 2008, following with a significant victory over former welterweight champ Luis Collazo in a grueling battle last January.

Juan Urango (21-1-1, 16 KOs), originally from Columbia and now living in Miami, is an aggressive, powerful puncher with rock-hard fists. This two-time junior welterweight titleholder has only one career defeat, a decision loss at the hands of Ricky Hatton in 2007. Now, the 28-year-old Urango looks to utilize his quick, precise jab as he steps up in weight class to try and blemish Berto’s perfect record in this scheduled 12-round bout.

The opening bout pits top-rated junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo (15-0, 12 KOs) of Coachella, Cal. against former welterweight titleholder and Reading, Pa. native Kermit Cintron (30-2-1, 27 KOs) in a scheduled 12-round junior middleweight contest. Making his fourth appearance on HBO’s hit late-night series, the hard-hitting, aggressive Angulo is on the fast track to boxing stardom, but is about to face his most formidable opponent to date. Throughout his nine-year career, the 29-year-old Cintron has demonstrated tremendous power, size and strength, never backing down from a challenge. His wealth of experience in fighting opponents such as Antonio Margarito and Lovemore N’dou makes him a dangerous opponent for the 26-year-old Angulo.
