Despite being a knockout specialist, it was believed that Berlanga would be taken to the distance tonight. His recent opponent, Lanell Bellows, is a veteran of the sport who wasn’t stopped by any boxer before.

If he continues with his intense dominance, he is expected to be a world champion soon. There’s no way we can write him off from the title tale, especially when he is on a 15 first-round KO win streak.
