The WBC World Super-Featherweight Title

BoxNation presents a night of stunning rematches live from Tucson, Arizona on Saturday 11th May when it will be all-out WAR!

Mexican warriors Miguel Berchelt and Francisco Vargas delivered one of the most brutal battles of recent years in January 2017.

Vargas was stopped on his feet in the 11th round of an unforgettable contest, with Berchelt taking his WBC Super-Featherweight Title.

In a sensational co-feature, WBO Super-Bantamweight Champion Emanuel Navarrete makes his first defence in a rematch against London-based Ghanaian Issac Dogboe.

The Mexican caused one of the upsets of 2018 when he outpointed Dogboe who was being tipped to become one of boxing’s biggest stars.

Berchelt (35-1, 31 KOs) has established himself as a top drawer World Champion and will be making his fifth title defence he does battle with Vargas once again.

“Francisco Vargas is a great Mexican warrior, just like I am,” Berchelt said. “I am training at my best to prove once again that I am not only better than him, but that I am the best 130-pounder in the world.”

Vargas (25-1-2, 18 KOs) has boxed just twice since their first epic encounter, beating Liverpool’s Stephen Smith, who suffered an x-rated ear injury and last April forced Rod Salka to quit on his stool after six rounds.

“The three wise men came bearing gifts, and one of them is my highly awaited rematch against Miguel Berchelt on May 11. Like I said before our first fight, Mexicans never back down, and I will show that once again in the ring,” predicted Vargas.

Navarrete (26-1, 22 KOs) has won 20 consecutive bouts, bursting onto the world scene with his shocking upset of Dogboe in December.

In their initial contest, he pressed the action and busted up Dogboe to notch the well-deserved decision.

“I am ready to show the world that our first fight was no accident,” warned the Mexican. “I am the better fighter, and I will show that again. Dogboe made a mistake in taking this rematch.”

Dogboe (20-1, 14 KOs) caused a huge upset when he won the belt Navarrete snagged from him, hammering Jessie Magdaleno last April.

He says he paid the price for underestimating his rival and vowed revenge when he steps out once again on the Channel of Champions.

He said: “You know something, at my lowest, he couldn’t knock me out. Isaac Dogboe is here to set the record straight.

“A fit Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe is a dangerous Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe. May 11, I’m coming for my title.”
