The expected and highly anticipated fight between the super featherweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt and Oscar Valdez will have to wait a little longer, since the fight is scheduled for the last months of this year.
The plan changes are due to the pandemic, so both fighters can gear their activities.
Each is likely to have a prep fight to coincide, before they collide.
Berchelt, 28, with a 37-1 record with 33 knockouts, has made six successful defenses of the title that he won against another Mexican, Francisco Vargas, in January 2017, and is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular fighters today.
Valdez (27-0, 21 KO), 29, jumped to the super featherweight division in 2019 after a solid 126-pound season.
