Andre Berto vs. Jesus Soto Karass: Fight Time, Date, Live Stream, TV Info, More . At San Antonio (Showtime): Andre Berto vs. Jesus Soto Karass, 12 rounds, welterweights; Omar Figueroa vs. Nihito Arakawa, 12 rounds, for vacant WBC interim lightweight title
At 29 years old, Andre Berto (28-2, 22 KO) is no longer an up-and-coming prospect. He is a former welterweight champion, but he has faced defeat in two of his last four fights. On Saturday night, he'll look to re-establish momentum in his career as he takes on the rugged Jesus Soto Karass (27-8-3, 17 KO) in San Antonio, Texas.
The bout is for the vacant North American Boxing Federation welterweight title, but with Berto having held a world title at 147 pounds, the title at stake won't hold a great deal of weight for him.
He almost certainly has his eye on getting back in the world title picture at 147 pounds. That process starts with taking care of Soto Karass. The fight is the featured bout of a potentially exciting triple-header on Showtime that also features Keith "One Time" Thurman vs. Diego Chaves and Omar Figueroa vs. Nihito Arakawa.
