Unbeaten super featherweight Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (19-0, 16 KOs) scored a spectacular second round KO win over Filipino Weng Haya (17-6, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Complejo Deportivo Inalambrica in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Haya, who had then-WBO champion Orlando Salido on the deck twice in December 2011, was supposed to be the toughest opponent of Berchelt’s career. However, Berchelt simply overpowered Haya, putting hiom on the deck in both rounds one and two. Time was 2:57.
In other action, super middleweight Jose “Barretas” Pinzon put Roberto “Hercules” Valdez down five times in a two round blowout and jr welterweight Silverio “Chamaco” Ortiz won a ten round unanimous decision over Jesus “Pantera” Gurrola.
