CARSON, Calif (Nov. 2, 2019)  Miguel Berchelt defended his WBC super featherweight world title for a sixth time, stopping the game but overmatched former world champion Jason Sosa in the fourth round at Dignity Health Sports Park.
 
Berchelt (37-1, 33 KOs) knocked down Sosa (23-4-4, 16 KOs) in the second round and kept the pressure coming, ultimately forcing a corner stoppage with four seconds left in the fourth (2:56).


 
Berchelt has his eyes on lucky defense number seven, and former featherweight world champion Oscar Valdez is on his radar.

It was a great performance. I want to congratulate Jason," Berchelt said. "He came to put on a great fight, and I have a lot of love for him.
 
I want to wait until Valdez fights on Nov. 30. If he wants this belt, come and get it.
 
Said Sosa: Hes a great champion. Hes defended it six times. He has serious power.
