Herring retains title in Fresno

Jamel Herring W12 Lamont Roach... Jamel "Semper Fi" Herring, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, retained his WBO junior lightweight title with a Veterans' Day Weekend unanimous decision (115-113 and 117-111 (twice) win over top contender Lamont Roach Jr. in front of 7,412 fans at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California. Herring controlled the action early, but Roach landed a huge right hand at the end of the eleventh round that nearly sent Herring through the ropes. Roach pressed the action in the twelfth, but it was too little, too late, as "The Fighting Marine" made his first successful title defense. “I won {the title} on Memorial Day Weekend and I defended it on Veterans Day Weekend, so it definitely means a lot to all of our troops out there defending our country and still in harm’s way," Herring said. "This is for ya’ll. I couldn’t lose it on our weekend. It means a lot to still be a world champion.
 
“Like I said, [WBC champion] Miguel Berchelt is considered number one, the best super featherweight in the world. In order to be the best, you have to keep testing yourself.”
 
Said Roach: “We knew we had to dig down. When I hurt him, all that was on my mind was finishing him. I’m coming into unchartered territory.”
