Citing a left biceps injury sustained while training on Monday, January 30, Andre Berto withdrew from his scheduled February 11 Showtime bout against Victor Ortiz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.

Berto reportedly had an MRI on the bicep taken on Monday. The extent of the injury is still not known.

Although it's not known when Berto will be able to return to the ring, all parties involved are actively seeking a possible postponement date for the fight, Golden Boy Promotions and Lou DiBella said in a press release.
