Yours truly had an internet loss last night, cutting my night based around watching Miguel Berchelt short, but I got up this morning to check the cloud DVR version of the top junior lightweight in the sport doing what he does, stopping an overmatched but brave Eleazar Valenzuela in the sixth round of a stay-busy lightweight fight.
Record-wise, this may be a no-contest, as there was no commission present for the Mexico City card held at the TV Azteca studio, but we’ll see how that goes. For now, let’s say Berchelt is 38-1 (34 KO) with a stoppage of Valenzuela (let’s say he’s 21-14-4, 16 KO), which came via systematic and gradual breakdown of a game opponent, though one totally out of his league.
In the co-feature, unbeaten 140-pound prospect Omar Aguilar stopped Dante “Crazy” Jardon in the first round of their bout. If the win ever gets officially counted, Aguilar will be 18-0 (17 KO), and he showed his potential is there against a career-best opponent in Jardon (let’s say 32-7, 23 KO). Yes, Jardon is fighting heavy at 140, as he’s really a natural 130-pounder, but he’s a tough and willing veteran.
Junior featherweight prospect Alan David Picasso (14-1, 5 KO?) won an eight-round decision over Florentino Perez (14-6-2, 9 KO?) on scores of 78-74, 79-73, and 79-73.
