Miguel Berchelt Holds Presser, Still Unsure of Next Opponent

By Rafael Soto

As a press conference was held earlier today, Mexico's Miguel 'Alacran' Berchelt confirmed his return to his native Cancun, Quintana Roo, for February 10 at the Oasis Arena in Cancun, and regardless of the opponent he plans to put on a big show.

After the last minute refusal of former champion Cristian Mijares, Berchelt will go out to give the fans the show they deserve.

The grand gala of Cancun will be broadcast by Azteca 7, La Casa del Boxeo.

At the press conference Berchelt was in the company of the president of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaiman, his representative Mario Abraham of Max Boxing, the director of Operations of Zanfer Promotions Guillermo Brito and the producer of the Box Azteca Team, Aquiles Castaneda.

"I'm confident that the fans are going to have the show that they deserve, a world championship fight and unfortunately it will not be against Cristian Mijares, who withdrew at the last minute, but we are working together to get a worthy opponent and give them a great fight," Berchelt said at a conference.

The world champion considered it disrespectful that Mijares had walked out of the fight, regardless of his motives, with only a few weeks to go and assured that the task to get him an opponent will not be easy.

"I have to change the preparation a bit because Mijares is left-handed. Right now I do not know who they will put me in front of me, but I know that the preparation I did with Alfredo Caballero will help me to beat anyone," said Berchelt.

Finally, Berchelt said he was ready for anyone, even for the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko and confessed that he's really thinking about holding a unification showdown with the Ukrainian boxer, who holds the WBO world title and is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the sport.

Loma is not fighting Berchelt in Cancun, nor on HBO!

I hope the Loma fight happens sooner rather than later. If Berchelt wants a tune up before that fight he should fight Mickey Roman, while Loma fights Ogawa or Machado. Then Loma and Berchelt can fight afterwards.
