Miguel Berchelt continues the rebuilding stages following the lone loss of his career earlier this year, making the highlight reel in the process. The 22-year old was impressive in an emphatic 4th round knockout over Carlos Manuel Reyes in their headliner Saturday evening in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.
A left hook put Reyes (24-3-1, 16KOs) down and out late in round four, remaining on the canvas for several minutes following the vicious knockout. The setback extends his woes on the road, with all three career losses having taken place outside of his native Dominican Republic.
Berchelt improves to 23-1 (20KOs) with the win. The super featherweight prospect put together a string of impressive wins before suffering a shocking 1st round knockout versus Luis Flores earlier this year on TV Azteca, but has since won two straight.
The bout aired live on TV Azteca in Mexico, and beIn Sport in the United States.
Aaron 'La Joya' Herrera (27-3, 19KOs) picked up his second straight win in a 10-round decision over Colombia's Jose David Mosquera (16-4, 14KOs). Scores were 97-94, 97-92 and 97-91 in favor of Herrera, who scored a pair of knockdowns in round three.
