Soto Karass stops Berto in 12th

Andre Berto’s dreams of regaining a version of the world title were shattered last month when he suffered a tko defeat to Jesus Soto Karass but he was dealt a double setback soon after when it was discovered a that he also sustained a torn tendon in his right shoulder.


Berto undergoes surgery in Los Angeles on Wednesday to fix the tendon. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who helped Berto with a previous injury in 2012, will perform the surgery.


"Surgery is obviously never something that anyone wants to deal with, but adversity is nothing new to me," Berto said in a statement. "I know that Dr. ElAttrache is one of the best in the business, so I am in good hands. I’m going to tackle this latest obstacle head on, and I plan to be back in the ring full force in 2014."


Berto,28-3, sustained the injury in the fourth round of the fight against Soto Karass before he was decked Berto in the 12th and final round.
