    Holy crap. Two boxing series from Haymon? With cards that don't look awful?

    This may be the connection Glory was hinting.

    Maybe a co-promotion?

    Hmmmmm..... Any chance this leads to Berto taking a Glory fight. He's got some MMA talent in the family with his sister, dad and brother all having cage experience. Would be awesome to see how a relatively high level boxer like himself gets on in kickboxing.

    Wouldnt doubt it honestly, im sure they will all swap fighters when an opportunity arises, wouldnt doubt berto has already trained some bjj and wrestling on his off time with his fam... wouldnt doubt him going to bellator for a special attraction type fight and given a can to put away, itll bring new eyeballs to bellator as well as berto... spike is seriously impressing me with these friday combat sport days they are trying to put together.
