On Saturday night, Nov. 3, inside of the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, TX, WBC junior lightweight champion Miguel Berchelt delivered a brutal beating on worthy but outgunned contender Miguel “Mickey” Roman for a fourth successful defense of his title. Berchelt (34-1, 30 KO’s) scored three knockdowns along the way, two in the sixth, and one three rounds later, before the contest was stopped in round nine.

The all-Mexican showdown, aired on the ESPN + streaming app, delivered as expected, but was a bit more one-sided than one may have liked. Roman (60-13, 47 KO’s) was valiant in the face of such a savage attack, and perhaps the fight could have been stopped a few rounds earlier.
