Eduardo ‘Rocky’ Hernandez of Mexico City, Mexico, is rising rapid fire in the super featherweight division, with 25 of his opponents already knocked out in his 28-0 record. Trained by former World Council World Minimumweight champion Isaac Bustos, Hernandez already holds the World Boxing Council Youth World Super Featherweight championship and may be headed later in 2019 into a world title bout with 35-1 Mexican compatriot Miguel Berchelt of Merida, Mexico. Berchelt, the current WBC World Super Featherweight titleholder, is scheduled to defend his belt in May 2019 at the Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona against former WBC World Super Featherweight champion Francisco Vargas on Mexico.


On April 30, 2019, Rocky Hernandez knocked Ibrahim Mgender in the second round at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. The photo tells the story. Hernandez is world class and nothing short of a world title opportunity will due at this point. SO many of Hernandez’ opponents are getting knocked out early, Hernandez is clearly worthy of better opposition. WBA Super World Super Featherweight champion Gevonta Davis could also be next for Hernandez. This would clearly be a super fight between two divisional super fighters at 130 pounds. One thing is for sure, whoever fights Rocky Hernandez better well be well prepared. Hernandez packs the most powerful Mexican punch since Ruben Olivares. Hernandez will always be dangerous, as his opponents are all getting counted out.
