Berto has withdrawn from Mosley fight

As a result of having lost loved ones the Haitian earthquake disaster, WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto has withdrawn from his January 30 title unification bout with WBA kingpin Shane Mosley. offers its sincere condolences to Mr. Berto as well as family members of the thousands who have lost their lives in Haiti.  I support and respect Berto's decision in this case. For any human being who is not totally void of emotion, family comes before any sporting event. 

As Berto steps down and devotes his attention to Haiti as well as the process of rebuilding what has been destroyed as a result of the earthquake, this opens doors for a potential Mosley vs. Mayweather clash.  Sources are saying that Mosley vs. Mayweather could potentially take place in May 1 in Las Vegas.
