Showtime Sports to Offer Spanish Audio (SAP) for Victor Ortiz vs. Andre Berto II Feb. 11

January 25, 2012 by  

SHOWTIME Sports will offer secondary audio programming (SAP) in Spanish for the upcoming Victor Ortiz-Andre Berto II blockbuster on Saturday, Feb. 11, live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast), from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Alejando Luna will call the play-by-play action and Raul Marquez will serve as color commentator for the SAP telecast.

Luna is well known in the Spanish-language sports community as the on-air host for Fox Sports en Espanol’s coverage of Mexican Soccer, Copa Santander Libertadores and Copa Nissan Sudamericana. Luna also serves as Fox Sports en Espanol’s play-by-play announcer for the Italian Serie A and UEFA Champions League.

Marquez was a representative for the 1992 U.S. Olympic boxing team in Barcelona, Spain and is a former International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior middleweight champion. He is currently a commentator for various Spanish boxing broadcasts and helps train his son, Arturo Marquez, an amateur boxer and Golden Gloves champion.

Ten months after their classic slugfest that was named 2011 “Fight of the Year” (USA Today, Ring Magazine), former World Champions Ortiz (29-3-2, 22 KO’s), of Ventura, Calif., and Berto (28-1, 22 KO’s), of Winter Haven, Fla., will square off again. The eagerly awaited 12-round fight is a rematch of a fiercely contested, multiple-knockdown affair on April 16, 2011, that Ortiz won by a unanimous decision (114-112, 114-111 and 115-110) while capturing Berto’s World Boxing Council (WBC) 147-pound title. Both fighters were knocked down twice in the fight, with Berto being dropped in the first, Ortiz going down a round later and each of them hitting the deck in a wild sixth round that many called the “Round of the Year” for 2011.

“Repeat or Revenge: Ortiz vs. Berto II” is the highly anticipated 12-round welterweight rematch of USA Today and Ring Magazine’s 2011 Fight of the Year between former World Champions “Vicious” Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto which will take place Saturday, Feb. 11 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The event is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and DiBella Entertainment. It will air live on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast). A special three-fight undercard will air live on SHOWTIME EXTREME beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast).
