Berchelt Looks To KO Vargas In Rematch

Two years ago, Miguel Berchelt and Francisco Vargas combined for almost 2,000 punches in a thrilling bout that Berchelt won via an 11th-round knockout to claim the WBC super featherweight title. With the exception of the second round, the fight was one-sided as Berchelt landed 293 punches in the six rounds.

Mexico's Miguel Berchelt retained his World Boxing Council super featherweight world title on Saturday, overpowering Francisco Vargas with a sixth round stoppage, in a rematch of their 2017 fight.

Even in defeat, Vargas earned the respect of Berchelt, who said, "I did what I said I was going to do in the ring".

WBO super bantamweight world champion Emmanuel Navarrete repeated the result from last and then some by picking up a brutal 12th round technical knockout over former world champion Isaac Dogboe, whom Navarrete outclassed and brutally beat. Hes a true Mexican warrior, and more than anything, let me tell you, he gave me my first opportunity at a world title. I thank him for giving me the opportunity to regain my title. Making that decision is never easy, but it was the right thing for Diaz to do in order to protect Vargas, who was perhaps too fearless for his own good.

"I want to prove that I'm the best 130-pounder in the world". After the fight, he declared he wants the victor of Masayuki Ito and Jamel Herring, who square off in two weeks on May 25 for Ito's WBO belt. In {two weeks}, it will be Jamel Herring taking on {WBO champion Masayuki} Ito.

"It really surprised me that he took so many hard shots, but at the same time, he continued to throw strong punches", Navarrete said after the fight.

Carlos Castro (23-0, 9 KOs) remained undefeated with a unanimous-decision victory over Mauro Diaz by the scores of 100-89 (twice) and 98-91. Castro dropped Diaz in the second round.

Below are 10 pictures from the bout. Marriagas body attack was too much, and Cervera elected to retire on his stool.

Marriaga scored a pair of knockdowns in the second round, while Cervera notched a flash knockdown of his own in the third.
