Even though ESPN continues refusing to consider MMA a sport, this columnist highlights a boxing star prospect with an interesting family as they choose MMA or Boxing as career paths:
"Andre Berto's entrance into the world of combat sports should come as no surprise.
His father, Dieuseul Berto, an immigrant from Haiti, is a boxing, wrestling and karate expert who competed as a professional mixed martial artist in Japan when Andre was a boy, and now runs a martial arts academy in their hometown of Winter Haven, Fla.
Andre's older brother, Edson, followed in their father's footsteps and is a professional mixed martial artist."
How much longer before MMA can have their own coverage on the station that is supposedly dedicated to athletic competition (and shows poker as a sport)?
