Aydin to Berto: “You are a coward! Don’t run away from me!”
- December 4th, 2010
Selcuk Aydin is in line for a mandatory WBC title shot with Andre Berto and he the Turkish warrior they call “Mini Tyson” has some choice words for the American.
“Andre Berto, be a man! You are coward and do not run away from me! Be a man!”
Aydin (20-0 with 15 KO’s) is hoping to force Berto into the ring in early 2011 but it does not look promising because Team Berto has shown no interest in facing the 27-year-old puncher who is co-promoted by Ahmet Oner and Don King.
Rumors persist that Berto could vacate the WBC belt and may target the Khan-Maidana winner at 140. Berto’s previous plans were to face Pacquiao first, then the second priority was Mosley but now both of those options appear hopeless at this time because it is widely expected that Pacquiao will face Mosley in April.
Berto has been expertly guided to the verge of stardom and the formidable Aydin is certainly capable of wrecking everything for Team Berto.
Aydin’s backup plans if Berto declines to meet him, according to a source, could involve a fight with Miguel Cotto or Mike Jones or another highly ranked welterweight for the vacant WBC title, or perhaps a venture down to 140 to meet Devon Alexander if Alexander prevails over Tim Bradley in January.
