Former world champion Miguel ‘Alacran’ Berchelt will move his coaching headquarters to Las Vegas after ending his four-year working relationship with Sonoran famed coach Alfredo Caballero in Hermosillo.
“I’ll be training in Las Vegas, but I won’t be with Alfredo Caballero anymore,” Berchelt told ESPN Deportes.
A few weeks ago, the Mexican hound was seen training with Jorge Capetillo in Las Vegas. He is also working in Miami with Jorge Rubio. Currently, no name has been officially announced as his new head coach.
Berchelt said he will return in 2022 in lightweight after a successful and long-haired super-weapon campaign. He won the super featherweight championship belt, version under the direction of the World Boxing Council. With that belt, he made seven defenses, six of which were successful against the likes of Francisco Vargas, Takashi Miura and Jason Sosa.
He lost the title after a brutal direct loss to Oscar Valdez in February. The result was surprising as many considered Valdez to be the much weaker player in the fight. Since that defeat, Berchelt has trained with Caballero in Sonora, but never returned to the official ring. Caballero is currently training super flyweight champion Juan Francisco ‘Gallo’ Estrada for a possible third game against Román ‘Chocolatito’ González early next year.
Berchelt just celebrated his 30th birthday. He has spent 11 years playing professionally and has an impressive 38-2 record with 34 kills. In world championship fights, he has a record of nine wins and a single loss, including two for the World Boxing Organization interim featherweight title.
