  Miguel Berchelt: I'm Sending A
Message To The Lightweight Division!"
 
This is a time of firsts for Mexican star Miguel "El Alacran" Berchelt. The former WBC super featherweight world champion is now campaigning as a lightweight and will begin his quest to become a two-weight world champion Saturday against Jeremiah Nakathila in the 10-round main event at Resorts World Las Vegas.

Berchelt also moved his training camp from Mexico to Las Vegas to work with a new head trainer, Jorge Capetillo. The Nakathila bout will be his first since his title reign ended via brutal knockout at the hands of Oscar Valdez in February 2021. Berchelt (38-2, 34 KOs) made six successful defenses of the title he won in January 2017, and he hopes the Nakathila fight is the start of a fruitful lightweight campaign.

In Front Of His Hometown Fans,
Mikael Zewski Fights For A Title
 
By William Trillo
It was almost exactly twelve years ago that I first saw Mikael Zewski (35-2, 23 KO’s) in the ring. The Canadian from Trois-Rivières, Quebec beat his unsuspecting foe into submission by round three. It was Mikael’s second professional fight. It was an impressive victory for the young fighter.

Having already traveled to Quebec twice to cover fights I kept a watchful eye on Zewski. As my good fortune would have it, I was able to cover the fighter live in multiple times in both Montreal and Las Vegas. Over the years Zewski has become a formidable fighter, a top contender and a friend.

Pure Chocolatito & More
 
By William Trillo
Whether Julio Cesar Martinez coming into the title fight overweight was a calculated risk (see Orlando Salido vs. Vasyl Lomachenko) or just an irresponsible blunder, the fact of the matter is, it didn’t distract Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez in any way, shape or form.

The fight was pure “Chocolatito” through and through. Any concerns that the fighter from Nicaragua is on the downward side of his career were laid to rest in San Diego. The future looks good for Gonzalez as big fights loom. When asked what might be next, Gonzalez deferred to the man he called his boss, that being Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn. It’s hard to imagine that Hearn is not going to take another crack at getting that Juan Francisco Estrada trilogy fired up once again. Fight fans are clamoring for that “Rubber Match” to happen, and if we are learning anything about Hearn, it is that he is getting a knack for giving the people what they want.

On Saturday night February 12, 2022, from the Commerce Casino In Commerce, California, the triumvirate of Elite Boxing Promotions, Red Boxing Promotions, and All Star Boxing Promotions worked collaboratively and set the bar high by putting together the one of the best fight cards so far this year. The matchmaker is to be commended. Eleven fights were on the card. Every underdog came in ready to brawl and all were in shape. Although all the favorites came out on top many of the matches were close slugfests and one could be considered an upset in that it ended in a draw. Count me in for the next fisticuffs at the Commerce Casino by these three promoters.
