Miguel Roman: I am Ready To End The Reign of Miguel Berchelt!

On the heels of his best career performance, super featherweight contender Miguel 'Mickey' Roman (58-12, 45 KOs), who's now ranked at number one by the  World Boxing Council, is determined to take on WBC world champion, Miguel Berchelt (32-1, 28 KOs).

Roman, who earlier this month defeated former world champion Orlando 'Siri' Salido with a spectacular technical knockout at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Nevada, has set his sights even higher for 2018, as the year he promises to conquer the absolute championship.

"I've shown exactly why I'm number one in the WBC rankings, by not running away from  a warrior like Orlando Salido, imposing my will upon him, my style and strength," Roman said.

"This victory places me in the ring against Miguel Berchelt, the current champion. And I am ready to end his reign. I have all the skills and the gnawing hunger to triumph."

Roman is thankful and grateful for  all the support from the local fans in Mexico and the WBC.

More than likely Berchelt will make a voluntary defense against Cristian Mijares in the first quarter of the year, so Roman says that he will wait for instructions from WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman.

IN OTHER NEWS: A few days ago, Panamanian boxer Gilberto "Cacique" Pedroza (18-3-2, 8KOs, 25 years old and native of the province of Darien of Panama) arrived to Tokyo, Japan, for his World Boxing Council light flyweight showdown against the unbeaten champ Ken Shiro (11-0, 5KOs, 25-year-old and BMB Boxing Gym from Uji City of Kyoto Province).

The fight takes place on December 30 at Bunka Gymnasium in Yokohama city of Kanagawa, a province near Tokyo.

Pedroza, who is ranked at number 11 under the WBC, arrived in Japan accompanied by his coaches Julio Cesar Archibaldo and Marcos Martinez.

Despite his long trip from Panama, Pedroza is optimistic and full of confidence.

"My physical condition is excellent thanks to my great training camp for this great opportunity, I am happy and motivated, Ken Shiro is a defensive fighter and I am an aggressive fighter. I will take his green and gold belt," commented Gilberto.

[QUOTE=HI-TECH Boxing;18363448]I hope this fight happens next! Berchelt vs. Roman And Lomachenko vs. Ogawa for early next year Then the winners fight afterwards. Forget Cristian Mijares. Who cares about Mijares? Berchelt shouldn't waste his time on that guy.[/QUOTE] Agreed Champions…

Roman is right, I feel he truly has found the 2.0 version of himself. Having a team to help you train like a nutritionist, a conditioning team, and a coach for technique certainly takes you to another level. I would…

Looks like Loma is running out of options! Maybe he needs to take the show to Tokoyo! Ogawa is weak, but the pickings are very slim @ 130!

Belchelt vs Roman will be exciting and a war

Comment by bxkiddchino on 12-27-2017

I doubt Lomachenko gets a fight against any other titleholder. Davis is being protected. It also looks like Vargas vs Gonzalez might be next. If Loma doesn't move up to 135, he will probably fight a Gamboa, Corrales, or Roman.
