World Boxing Council super featherweight champion Miguel "Alacran" Berchelt and Miguel "Mickey" Roman clash at the Don Haskins Center stadium on November 3 in open warfare
Accomplished and worthy champion Berchelt, 26 years old, (34-1, 30 KOs), from Cancun, Mexico, is determined to make his fourth successful defense of the world title - while 32 year old Roman (60-12, 47 KOs), from Juarez, will make his third attempt to win a world title.
Roman became the mandatory challenger in December of 2017 in Las Vegas, when he knocked out former world champion Orlando Salido. The aging veteran Salido was initially scheduled to face Berchelt for the title, but the champion withdrew with a training camp injury - and Roman accepted the fight on late notice. Salido retired from boxing afterwards.
Roman is training like never before with trainer Rudy Hernandez in Maywood, California, fully aware that this is his final chance at Green and Gold triumph.
"It's a fight that my team and I have been awaiting for a long time. November 3 is now so close. All the statements and rhetoric are behind us and we well know who will be the next World Boxing Council world champion," vowed Roman.
"Training with Rudy has given me results. We make an excellent team as he is a guy who cares about a complete preparation, including a nutritionist and a physical trainer to define work plan strategy according to specific needs. We are sure to come out with the victory!"
The boxer represented by Promociones del Pueblo has a record of 60 victories 47 by KO, and 12 losses. Mickey has built streak of 20 demolishing knockouts in his last 23 matches.
