"Alacrán" Berchelt (33-1-0, 29 KO's) will be defending his WBC super featherweight world championship, against Argentine "Yoni" Barros (41-5-1, 22 KO's) this Saturday, at Poliforum Zamná de Mérida, in a spectacular card by Zanfer and Max Boxing that will be broadcast by the Casa del Boxeo, Azteca 7.

"I feel very motivated to defend my championship before my people. We are going to offer a great fight and I will leave everything in the ring, but the belt stays at home," Berchelt predicted.

Barros, for his part, thanked  everyone for the opportunity and ensures that the promoters were wrong to choose him for  an optional defense.

"The opportunity I was looking for came to me and I will not waste it. I do not come  so far just to walk, I came to become a world champion. I respect Berchelt, he has given great fights, but he will not be able to deal with my style and my rhythm," said Barros.

Berchelt is simply a great boxer to watch. He comes to fight and wether this fight has any hype or none. Any boxing fan should watch this man at his craft any chance they get
