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
“I want to wait until Valdez fights on Nov. 30. If he wants this
belt, come and get it.”
Said Sosa: “He’s a great champion. He’s defended it six times. He
has serious power.”
