WBC super featherweight world champion Oscar Valdez not interest in a rematch with Miguel Berchelt.
This past Saturday night, at the MGM Grand's Conference Center in Las Vegas, Valdez pulled off an unexpected outcome when he dominated and brutally knocked out Berchelt, who was heavily favored to win.
Valdez put Berchelt down in the fourth, again in the ninth, and knocked him out cold in the tenth.
Valdez was the mandatory challenger to the title, so there is no contracted obligation to have a rematch.
The unbeaten boxer, who is trained by Eddy Reynoso, is looking for much bigger fights.
“I would not like a rematch with Berchelt for a lot of reasons. One: I would like to keep the friendship we have; And two - I want unify or have mandatory fights and I think the public was satisfied [with our fight], because we made it clear that I am the superior fighter," Valdez told reporters.
"I am here to fight against whoever they put in front of me. If the public demands another fight against Alacran Berchelt, then we'll go ahead, but I think we made it clear. Whichever fighter that the public wants, I am willing to fight with whoever."
Valdez explains that he became very concerned when he saw Berchelt was out cold on the mat and not responding to doctors.
“When I sent him down to the canvas I was very happy, because I achieved my dream, I was jumping and celebrating. I did not realize that he was not responding, until I turned around and saw that he was not reacting," Valdez recalled.
"I wished him all the best in this world. When I saw him in that manner, [out cold on the mat], it made me very sad. I went over to him to see if he was okay and to thank him. I told him that he is going to be world champion again. I hope that he recovers soon, because it is always important to return to the family. I wish Alacran Berchelt the best, I am sure that he will return as world champion."
