“I’m not trying to be this low that’s the thing,” Berto said. “I’ve been eating three, four times a day, taking in a lot of calories, taking in a lot of good proteins and carbs. I’m just putting the right things in my body, use everything as fuel.
“I’ve had the energy. My shoulders are good. It’s my first time in a while coming into a fight with no injuries. This is the healthiest I’ve been since I can remember.”
Andre is in a mindset he has never been in before. He has dedicated his life to the fight in September and it has shown physically, Berto’s body is shredded.

However, he has been 100% dedicated to the fight which is reflected in his social media.
When asked about what Floyd does during his training camps Berto responded with “I don’t want to watch him bowling. I don’t want to watch him with any of the broads. I don’t want to watch see him driving any of his little Tonka cars. None of that,” Berto said. “I just want to see him Sept. 12. That’s it.”
