Jeremia Nakathila Claims TKO Victory Over Miguel Berchelt!

Former WBC 130-pound champion Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (38-3, 34KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since being brutally knocked out last February. The second stoppage loss of his career was handed to him by two-division world champion and current WBC junior lightweight Oscar Valdez. Not only was Berchelt knocked out by Valdez, but he was also dropped three times prior to being knocked senseless.

He tussled with Jeremia “Low Key” Nakathila (23-2, 19KOs), who came into this bout one fight removed from being completely dominated by two-division champion Shakur Stevenson in their WBO interim title bout.

This was a chance for Berchelt to start fresh in a new weight class. He entered this bout ranked number five in the WBC lightweight rankings. Unfortunately for him, he wouldn’t fare much better in his return to the ring after being out for a year.


The 5’10” Nakathila came out gunning for the chin of Berchelt. Nakathila, behind an active jab, controlled the first two rounds of action. Landing right hand after right hand, it was clear that he was trying to test the chin of the former champion, Berchelt. It was clear that Berchelt was reluctant to open up with shots of his own, not completely trusting his chin.

Round three was huge for Nakathila, who scored a knockdown on Berchelt by way of his left jab! Round four was yet again a Nakathila round, as he came out ultra aggressive. It seemed as if every hard shot he threw shook up Berchelt.

Round five was by far the best of the fight in terms of two-way action! After being beat up for the first four rounds, Berchelt showed the heart of a former champion and started to let his hands loose! In doing so, he started letting his hands go, landing some vicious left hooks that pushed Nakathila back. However, that success would prove to be temporary. Berchelt got even more busted up in round six. This included a body shaking right hand that sent his mouthpiece flying out of his mouth. Referee Russell Mora decided before the start of the seventh round that Berchelt had taken enough punishment.

With that, Nakathila picked up the biggest win of his career. As for Berchelt, after this performance, it’s safe to say he should most definitely consider calling it a day.
