Boxer Andre Berto Denies Dropping The F-Bomb At Victor Ortiz

Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto

A press conference for an upcoming boxing match between Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz got a little heated last week, but Berto denies calling Ortiz a “fag.”

The shoving match started when a stare-down got a bit too close for comfort, and Berto told Ortiz he “ain’t with that gay sh*t.” In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Ortiz claimed Berto also called him the f-word, but Berto probably caught wind of what happened to homophobic boxer Manny Pacquiao in the light of his homophobic remarks, and made it clear that he has no issues with gays.

He told TMZ Sports:

“I respect the gay community to the fullest. Listen, I respect gay people but I love women. So if another man comes and puts his lips near mine, it would make you uncomfortable. No hard feelings … he just got too close.”

Whether he’s telling the truth or protecting his brand is anyone’s guess, but it’s a big sign of progress that any suspicion of homophobia is today’s sports world needs to be addressed and dismissed ASAP.

We wouldn’t want anyone to lose any sponsorships, now would we? Watch video of the press conference below. The altercation starts around the 9:25 mark, and the two boxers duke it out in the ring on April 30th.

He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
