Miguel Berchelt defends his WBC Super Featherweight title against the undefeated and former WBO Featherweight champion Oscar Valdez LIVE on eir sport 1 late night Saturday from 3am.
Promoted by Top Rank, this long-awaited all-Mexican clash will take place in "The Bubble" at the MGM, Las Vegas.
Berchelt (38-1, 34 KOs) has held the WBC super featherweight title since January 2017 when he knocked out Francisco Vargas in the 11th round.
His last five title defences have ended via the quick route, including a ninth-round TKO over Miguel Roman, a sixth-round TKO over Vargas in their May 2019 rematch, and a fourth-round knockout over former world champion Jason Sosa.
He last fought in June in a non-title bout where he knocked out Eleazar Valenzuela in six one-sided rounds.
Valdez (28-0, 22 KOs) is a two-time Mexican Olympian who vacated the WBO featherweight world title last year after six title defences which included 12-round classics against the likes of Scott Quigg, Genesis Servania and Miguel Marriaga.
He suffered a severely broken jaw against Quigg in March 2018, but returned 11 months later, and has since won four consecutive bouts.
Since moving up to 130 pounds, Valdez has scored stoppage wins over Adam Lopez and Jayson Velez.
