  • I figured he would come back eventually. Berchelt has taken some SAVAGE punishment in his last two fights. This appears to be a safe opponent but I hope they’re REALLY careful with what he does after this one.

      • Naw, Covid is/was not Berchelt’s problem.. he was a KO waiting to happen when Valdez crushed him.. he was becoming a major catcher in the fights leading up to Valdez.. he looked amateurish in the finally sequence of that fight as he lunged at Valdez with his arms outstretched and his chin up.. his subsequent beating against his next opponent was nasty.. he’s finished

        • Valdez was most likely like his 2 gym mates , eating that Mex meat. It is funny how people chooses to forget this lot were dopers along with Fury, while battering Benn. Especially with that corrupted WBC leader jumping to support them faster than a misile.

    • Yeah, the way Berchelt went out against Valdez, I remember thinking the worst when seeing him motionless on the canvas after running into that left hook. He took a rather brutal beating vs. Nakathila as well. Kinda feels like he’s an accident waiting to happen. He reminds me of Glen Tapia in that regard…

      • Yeah it was realy bad, USF. It was one of THE worst one punch knockouts I’ve ever seen and Berchelt had gotten knocked down once or twice before that if I recall correctly. And then against Nakathila – Nakathila hit him with a right hand in the last round of that fight and I thought he had knocked Berchelt’s head clean off.

        I remember Glen Tapia going along pretty well for a second and then the bottom fell out on him. He lost his punch resistance.

  • I followed Berchelt from before his championship run and he had stiff legs and bad balance then. Now with all the additional punishment in his last two fights…they just need to be very careful and watch him closely before it’s too late.
