Berchelt Was Bored at Herring-Ito, Prefers Loma or Gervonta Next

By Ryan Burton

WBC super featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt was ringside for Jamel Herring's upset unanimous decision victory over Masayuki Ito in Kissimmee, Florida. With the victory Herring captured the WBO super featherweight title in a bout that headlined an ESPN doubleheader.

The scores were wide with Herring winning 118-110 twice and 116-112.  In Berchelt's opinion, Ito didn't employ the right strategy.

"From my point of view Ito didn't do what he needed to do. He fought the wrong fight," said Berchelt who also felt the fight lacked action. "To me it was a boring fight."

The hard hitting Mexican was ringside because Top Rank, who promotes both fighters, would like to unify both titles at some point in time.

However, the fight that Berchelt really wants is a fight against WBA/WBO lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko who will likely fight Luke Campbell in the latter part of the summer. If that isn't possible he is equally interested in a unification bout against WBA champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis who returns to the ring in July against Ricardo Nuñez in a fight that will be televised by Showtime.

"I think the fans want to see a bigger fight (than a fight against Herring). For example, a fight against Lomachenko. If that fight can't be made then I would love to fight Davis," Berchelt told
