Saturday June 27, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Andre Berto vs. Jesus Soto Karass on Showtime. Showtime Boxing Knockout Kings II: Berto vs. Soto Karass airs this Saturday, July 27 live on Showtime with a fight time of 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.
As the "Knockout Kings" show title indicates, this is a match designed to give fans a high-energy, explosive performance. Both Berto and Soto Karass are indeed capable of delivering those kinds of showings. But they are also both on rocky roads right now. Berto, once viewed as a possible major player in boxing, has cooled off considerably in the past few years. He's 1-2 in his last 3, with losses to both Victor Ortiz and Robert Guerrero. That Guerrero fight was his last outing and showed Berto using a somewhat 2nd rate Floyd Mayweather defensive style to poor results. For his part, Soto Karass has only won 3 of his last 9 fights, though he has improved somewhat from a very rough 2009-2011 run. The end result is that both men need a win here and they need it badly. Styles make fights, and despite any concerns about where these two men stand, this could be a thrilling war.
