Celebrity, fame, whatever you want to call it, has a way of making people not think clearly. I’m sure I have been star-struck before, but this is ridiculous. According to TMZ.com, a former world champion told them: “The kid is CRAZY athletic…” “I seen that from kickin’ it with him a few years back. He has good speed and power.” “…the guy’s got real boxing potential…” Guess who said this?
The man making these outrageous claims is Andre Berto. Let’s hope Berto doesn’t become a manager, talent scout, or trainer, because according to him, anyone that is a celebrity has a shot at being a successful boxer.
