Lederman Talks Vargas vs Berchelt – This Saturday night sees Oscar De la Hoya and his Golden Boy Promotions live on HBO with the main events of a big ten fight boxing card coming to us from the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.
The main event sees WBC world 130 pound champion Francisco Vargas (23-0-2) defending his belt against the challenge of Miguel Berchelt (30-1). Vargas won the belt back in November of 2015 after fighting a war with Japan’s Takashi Miura and his first title defense resulted in a draw against rugged veteran Orlando Salido. Berchelt went 2-0 in 2016 and he captured an interim world title with the WBO.
The card also sees former super featherweight champion Takashi Miura (30-3-2) taking on veteran Miguel Roman (56-11) in a fight that could determine the next opponent for the winner of Vargas vs Berchelt.
