The WBC World Super-Featherweight Title

BoxNation will begin the New Year with an all-Mexican World Title fight, as Francisco Vargas defends his WBC World Super-Featherweight belt against Miguel Berchelt.

This exciting match-up takes place on January 28th at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, and looks to set to be an action-packed contest.

Last time out in June, Vargas’ first defence resulted in a majority draw with former Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido, in a candidate for fight of the year.

The 31-year-old (23-0-2,17 KOs) now faces dangerous countryman Miguel Berchelt, who is six years his junior and boasts an impressive knockout ratio.

Berchelt (30-1, 27 KOs) was last on our screens in March 2016, when he stopped George Jupp in the sixth round to win the Interim WBO World Super Featherweight Title.

Both warriors have an entertaining style so viewers could be in store for a cracker to start 2017 in style. On the undercard, Takashi Miura (30-3-2, 23 KOs) faces Miguel Roman (56-11, 43 KOs).
