WBC Super-Featherweight Champion 🇲🇽Miguel Berchelt (37-1-0, 33KO👊) was successful in the sixth defense of his title as he stopped former Super-Featherweight Champion 🇺🇸Jason Sosa (23-4-4, 16KO👊) in the fourth round at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
Post fight, Jason Sosa told ESPN’S Crystina Poncher that Miguel Berchelt is the hardest puncher he has faced, and that the body shots he took were the hardest he’s felt in his career. After a first round where he found some success, Sosa was met by a warmed up Berchelt who began to crank the pressure up and his usual volume punching increased, putting the tough Camden, New Jersey native down in the second. Any ounce of offensive success Sosa had was met by harder return fire from Berchelt that came in the form of three, four and five shot combinations, delivered both upstairs and downstairs.
Berchelt continued to stay on top of Sosa in round three and it was becoming apparent by Sosa’s body language that he would soon succumb to the vicious assault he was being hit with. The fourth round spelled the end as Sosa’s corner threw in the towel to prevent any further battering from taking place.
From this point Berchelt stated that he wants to face off with Mexican rival Oscar Valdez who he has a long standing rivalry with, and has recently moved up to super featherweight. The personal nature of the riff puts the priority of that fight over any possible unification bouts with the likes of a Jamel Herring (who defends his title November 9th) for him.
