Andre Berto to Withdraw from His Fight

The strain of dealing with the Haitian earthquake forced Andre Berto to withdraw from his fight next week with Shane Mosley. The move could open up a bout between Mosley and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayweather has been looking for an opponent since his March 13 fight with Manny Pacquiao fell apart. Berto and Mosley were to meet Jan. 30 in Las Vegas for Berto’s World Boxing Council welterweight title. But Berto, who represented Haiti in the 2004 Olympics, said he could not train properly for the fight in the wake of the devastating earthquake that hit the country.
