Miguel Berchelt wants to jump up to Lightweight and test his power against Vasyl Lomachenko.

The huge punching WBC Super-Featherweight Champion has ended the night early for 31 of his 35 victims, and attempts another demolition job on Saturday.

He defends his crown against fellow Mexican Francisco Vargas in Tucson, Arizona and will look to repeat his 2017 win when he knocked out his rival in 11 rounds in a bloody encounter.

Berchelt has proved himself as a fine Champion in four World Title defences and is looking to move on and test the greats adding: “Lomachenko is the fight we want. We want big challenges, without a doubt. I’d love to fight Lomachenko.”

The biggest threat at 130lb is Gervonta Davis, but old rival Vargas believes he will settle the score and get revenge.

Since their first epic encounter when Vargas lost the title, he has stopped Liverpool’s Stephen Smith, who famously suffered an X-rated ear injury and Rod Salka.

Vargas, 35, hasn’t boxed for a year, but says: “I’ve been waiting for this fight for two years and now it’s finally here.

“It’s going to be a war. I did a few different things in preparation for this fight. I worked on different strategies, but we’ll see how the fight goes.

“You know, when two Mexicans get into the ring, they leave everything behind. My goal is to reclaim the World Title.”

Berchelt, 27, who is nickname ‘El Alacran', which translated means ‘The Scorpion’, last boxed in November when he hammered another Mexican, Micky Roman, in the ninth round of a grudge match.

No love has been lost between Vargas and 'The Scorpion' but Berchelt clearly respects his old foe a lot more having already shared the ring with him.

He said: Vargas and I fought a great fight back in 2017, and our 2019 rematch will be no different. We are proud Mexican warriors who leave it all in the ring.

“The strategy is the same, which is to go out there to solve the problem that Vargas represents. I will leave it all in the ring. I will give all my heart to this battle.

“Every time the ‘Alacran’ fights, it’s a guarantee that the fans will see a knockout.”
