We briefly caught up with the WBC World Champion Andre Berto here are some of his thoughts on fighting Juan Urango.

P4P:
Since this week raps up your training for this fight, did you accomplish everything you and your camp set out to do?

Berto:
We pretty much got down all the training needed to beat this opponent (Urango). Getting the footwork right for cutting off the ring, coming out boxing (or slugging), what-ever my opponent does so I can adjust if need be.

P4P:
What do we expect to see on Saturday night?

Berto: A very entertaining fight as I am ready for anything my opponent tries to bring into the ring.
 

P4P: When I interviewed Lennox Lewis prior to his fight with Klitschko, I asked, (since his parents' were from Jamaica), If he has any adhocracies or superstitions that he does prior to climbing into the ring?

Berto:
Andre replied that the only thing that is on his mind prior to getting ready are the steps of training that we went over and over and over again during training camp, to stick to my game-plan so to speak.

P4P:
Anything else you would like to say?

Berto:
Come out next Saturday and see one terrific fight-don't miss it!
