Berchelt defended his WBC super featherweight title for the fourth time, scoring a ninth-round TKO against Roman in front of 5,420 fans at the Don Haskins Center on Saturday evening.

It was a phone booth battle for the first five rounds, and in the sixth, Berchelt knocked down Roman twice. The first knockdown was a crisp right hand that nearly had Roman out for the count. But he got up, and Berchelt applied more pressure, knocking down Roman again as the round ended.

Roman (60-13, 47 KOs) somehow survived, but Berchelt continued to pour it on until referee Jon Schorle called it off with two seconds remaining in the ninth round.

Miguel Marriaga has had three cracks at world title. He is well on his way to a fourth.

Marriaga (27-3, 23 KOs) knocked out Jose Estrella (20-15-1, 14 KOs) with a left hook to the body in the fourth round to stake his claim as a top featherweight contender. Marriaga, a Colombian power puncher, has won two straight fights since defeats in world title bouts against Vasiliy Lomachenko and Oscar Valdez.

Super Featherweight: Robson Conceicao (10-0, 5 KOs), unanimous decision, 8 rounds, Joey Laviolette (9-2, 5 KOs). Scores: 80-72 3X.

[QUOTE=Tatabanya;19248130][B]He was at his second pro fight, and almost knocked him out at the end[/B] notwithstanding several pro-Salido issues (no need to repeat them here). Look, I am not disparaging Berchelt who is definitely talented. But I think that Lomachenko…

It's all good and dandy to talk about Davis being a class above or he is too much for Berchelt, but we still need the fight to happen. Davis very well could spark all the top guys out at 130,…

Davis stopped Pedraza, nice strap. But Berchelt beat Roman, Miura, Vargas. More experienced fighter.

[QUOTE=Santa_;19247444]Oh yeah without a doubt. Especially at 135. Berchelt's draining to get down to 130 imo I hope he moves up soon. Put it this way Loma still has bad dreams about Salido but Berchelt will give him nightmares for…
