Berchelt dominates Vargas to retain crown
Miguel Berchelt retained his WBC super-featherweight title after dominating Francisco Vargas in their rematch on Saturday.
Berchelt needed 11 rounds when the pair met in January 2017, but he was far more convincing in Tucson, Arizona.
The 27-year-old was relentless and had Vargas bleeding before the latter's corner called an end to the fight after the sixth round.
Berchelt (36-1) won his title in the pair's initial bout, and he has now defended successfully five times to extend his winning streak to 15.
"He gave me a shot to win my title, I wanted to give him a chance to win it back," he said after his win.
"His corner did the right thing by stopping the fight."
