Where To Watch: Miguel Berchelt Vs. Jeremiah Nakathila Tonight
Miguel Berchelt (38-2, 34 KOs) is destined to return to action soon.
Thirteen months after getting tortured by Oscar Valdez, the Mexican is set to return to action. The former WBC junior lightweight titleholder, who made six title defenses of the WBC 130-pound title, will move up to the talent-laden lightweight division.
Berchelt will face Jeremiah Nakathila at The Resorts World Event Center, Las Vegas on March 26.
“I am extremely optimistic and looking forward to returning to the ring,” Berchelt expressed in an interview with The Ring.
“It took longer than normal to recover after fibrosis from the COVID. I was never the same after attaining the coronavirus symptoms and my last fight showed that,” Berchalt added.
Despite taking a long time off and a disappointing loss against Valdez, the 30-year-old cannot wait to battle Nakathila and is thinking about different strategies through which he can outdo the Namibian.
“Since my last defeat, I have made a few changes to my coaching staff. I moved to Las Vegas where I hired a physical trainer. For the last five months, I have been along with my new coach, Jorge Capetillo,” Berchalt said.
“Even at this stage of my career, it is about baby steps. I want to be back in action and climb in the rankings as fast as possible.”
