Chris Brown isn't some helpless jail inmate ... dude can FIGHT -- so says boxing champ Andre Berto who tells TMZ Sports he's trained with singer on multiple occasions. 

Berto -- a 2-time welterweight champ -- was out in L.A. the other day when we asked if he had any advice for Brown, who's currently behind bars in a Virginia jail. 

Turns out, the two are actually pretty good friends -- and Andre says they've trained together in the boxing gym several times over the years. 

In fact, Andre says the singer has some pretty good hands when it comes to boxing -- though he doesn't think he'll have to use 'em in jail ... because he's too busy making friends!

Seriously, Andre says Chris is an "amazing guy" who just needs to work on getting his life in order. 

You buyin' that?

As much as TMZ follows this guy around if this is true, I'm surprise that your just finding this info out. Especially since all you guys r good for is trying to dig up dirt to sell a story no matter how small it is. Free CB!!!

Don't nobody want to be fighting nobody and mess your precious self up.I see if your training to fight and your (Spawing)in the gym.But out here street fighting and try your skills on somebody can result to somebody getting injured.See that's why he in jail now for violence,beating on people abusing them and stuff.Chris Brown a dangerous person,next he was going to end really in worse shape he's in now,so he should be counting his blessing and accept his wrongs doings in life and do his time and move on.I think he was dumb to have what a bless life and threw out his career most towards the end was a violent and thuggish ruggish lifestyle that resulted in his spiral let down which he took a blow to his fans and a let to myself and his family.I just hope and pray that the Judge find him and his securityu staff guilty and hold them full responsible this young man getting assaulted here in his own hometown,they could have killed him,looks like to me they was trying to serious hurt Mr.Parker,I'm blessed and glad to see that the Law is holding Chris Brown and any other Celebrity accountable for all this mishief acts that break the Law in anyway.Do the crime you do the time,#Peace
