HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - Andre Berto retained his World Boxing Council welterweight title with a unanimous decision over Colombia's Juan Urango on Saturday night.

Berto's quickness frustrated Urango throughout their bout at the Hard Rock Live Arena.

Preferring to keep his distance, Berto landed repeatedly with lead left jabs to the head, and also was effective with rights to the head.

Urango continued to pursue Berto, but only found quick lefts and rights to the head for his strategy.

Berto, of Winter Haven, Fla., won on two judges' scorecards 118-110 and 117-111 on the third.
