Berlanga: I'm Ready To Go Rounds, But See Fear in Eyes of Opponents

Undefeated Puerto Rican super middleweight Edgar Berlanga hopes to give the crowd more rounds in his final fight of 2020, after extending his streak of first-round knockout wins to 15.

Berlanga will not have many days off as he hopes to be back in the gym next week for his next fight, scheduled for December 12 at the MGM Grand's Conference Center in Las Vegas.

Back on October 17, as part of the unification between Teofimo Lopez and Vasiliy Lomachenko, Berlanga improved his record to 15-0 with 15 KOs when he blew away Lanell Bellows. With that win, he also added his fifteenth consecutive victory via knockout in the first round.

“I am very happy with my performance. Now I'm resting and taking a well-deserved break,” Berlanga said to Carlos Narvaez. "Right now I'm enjoying the experience of sharing with people like Wisin and Tempo here in Miami for next week, then I'll be back in the gym since I'll be back in the ring on December 12.

“I love that they talk about me, especially people like Mike Tyson, who I know has spoken about me. My favorite fighter is Felix 'Tito' Trinidad. He was precisely the one who called me before my last fight. He motivated me and told me that I would be the next great champion of Puerto Rico and urged me to listen to my corner and my coach. I know that some fame will come, but I am calm and remain humble, grateful and with my feet on the ground.

Berlanga would like to go some rounds, but he sees fear in his opponents and decides to finish them off sooner than later.

“They already call me 'the monster.' I think it's because I feel that way when the bell rings in every fight,” Berlanga said. “But I am a fighter prepared to fight more rounds; The problem is that I see the fear in the eyes of my opponents and that becomes enough for me to make the decision to hit them and finish them."

[QUOTE=yankees7448;20842972]I know what you're trying to say with regards to Jacobs but it doesn't hold up. Danny Jacobs is an excellent fighter. Mayweather Jr is a guaranteed first ballot Hall of Famer and will probably be considered an all time…

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;20841821] Canelo didn't lose any props for losing to Mayweather! I don't think Berlanga would lose any for losing to Jacobs or Rosado, well maybe Rosado! Lol! He needs someone to test him, and Bob is going to showcase him…

Go look at Caleb Plants boxrec he fought worse opponents then Berlanga at this stage in his career and was older . Heck he's barely fighting better opponents now
