(WINTER HAVEN, FLA.) – Andre Berto (Winter Haven, Fla.) has been licensed by the California State Athletic Commission after completing all necessary pre-licensing requirements.

“As someone who truly believes in clean sport, I have never used any type of performing enhancing drugs. Everything I’ve achieved was the result of hard work and determination,” Berto said. “I am excited that this whole situation is behind me, and I look forward to returning to the ring soon with another exciting performance so stay tuned.”

Berto’s positive test in May revealed extremely small amounts of a banned substance, that were inconsistent with any performance-enhancing effect and were much more consistent with contamination of an otherwise acceptable food or supplement.

The main event of the evening sees Ivan Redkach (20-2-1) return to action as he faces rugged Argenis Mendez (23-5-1) in a ten round bout. Redkach had a tough going in 2016, going 0-1-1 in two fights. The poor showing saw him slide from the list of "up and comers" but he has bounced back with a win in January of this year and he is trying to put together a winning streak and put last year behind him. The story is similar for Mendez, who went 0-2 in 2016 but has an IBF world title reign at Super featherweight on his resume from back in 2013.   Ray Flores Previews "Toe To Toe Tuesdays" For May 2 In this latest TBC segment we check in with our "road warrior" analyst Ray Flores as he takes a closer look at Tuesday’s line-p.
