Andre Berto Net Worth

Andre Berto Net Worth. Andre Michael Berto (born September 7, 1983) is a former professional boxer who competed from 2004 to 2018. He holds dual Haitian and American citizenship. A two-time former welterweight world champion, he held the WBC and IBF titles between 2008 and 2011, and the WBA interim title in 2015. As an amateur, he won the National Golden Gloves tournament in 2001 (at light middleweight) and 2003 (welterweight), and would represent the U.S. at the 2003 World Championships, winning a welterweight bronze medal. He also represented Haiti at the 2004 Olympics, reaching the opening round of the welterweight bracket.

Throughout his career, Berto was known for his toughness, formidable punching power, and fast hand speed. In the late 2000s he was considered a rising star in the welterweight division, as well as a highly regarded young prospect in boxing. He reached the peak of his career in 2011, holding the WBC welterweight title which he had won in 2008 and made five defenses, and was ranked as the world’s third best welterweight, behind then-top stars Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Berto’s success was cut short after his first career loss to Victor Ortiz in 2011, which won Fight of the Year honors by The Ring magazine. Afterwards, Berto’s career fluctuated: from 2012 to 2015 he lost a further three times, but bounced back in 2016 with a win over Ortiz in a rematch.

Many of his siblings later went on to become professional kickboxers or mixed martial artists, but Berto focused on boxing. He allegedly learned how to box after he was beaten up by his classmates at school. In later years, the sport of boxing helped Berto avoid crime and other risks associated with his low-income neighborhood.
