On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the WBC welterweight champion, Andre Berto (23-0, 19 KOs). He will be facing what could be the toughest test of his young career, as he fights the former WBA welterweight champion, Luis Collazo (29-3, 14 KOs), Saturday, January 17, at the Beau Rivage Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. This fight will be televised in the U.S. on HBO.
In a lengthy interview, we discussed what to expect in this fight, how Andre plans to deal with his more experienced southpaw foe, how it was growing up in a family where participation in the combat sports was the norm, what his plans for the future are, his response to some criticisms directed his way, and more.
