Miguel "The Scorpion" Berchelt (37-1) is the reigning WBC Super Featherweight Champion and one of the elite fighters hailing from Mexico. Berchet has held this title for over four years, after taking it from Francisco Vargas with a knockout late win. Since then he’s had a solid run of defenses, including running it back with Vargas in May of 2019. In that fight, Berchelt finished things up in just six rounds, beating Vargas so badly that his trainer threw in the towel.

The title picture at 130 pounds, which is called both Super Featherweight and Junior Lightweight, is a bit of a mess right now, but Berchelt could have a chance to pick up more belts if he plays his cards right. Jamel Herring holds the WBO belt and he’s also a Top Rank fighter, so that matchup could make an appealing unification fight later this year. Also the IBF title was just lost by JoJo Diaz on the scales, as he came in way overweight before his title defense draw earlier this year. If Berchelt wants to go chasing championships, the opportunity is there if he can first defeat Valdez.

Oscar Valdez (28-0) is undefeated and a former WBO world champion from one weight class down as a featherweight, and now he has his mind set on being a two division world champ. Valdez won the title at 126 pounds in July 2016, and he held that title for just under three years before jumping up in weight. Now that he’s had two knockout victories in his two fights at 130 pounds, Valdez looks primed for a shot at a title.

Valdez has something big in common with Berchelt beyond their Mexican heritage. Both fighters have high career knockout rates. Valdez has a total of 22 knockouts in 28 wins, and Berchelt has 33 knockouts in 37 wins. Valdez hails from northern Mexico in an area close to the Arizona border, while Berchelt is from the famous coastal city of Cancún. While Canelo is still the most popular Mexican boxer active, this fight will certainly have the entire country watching and the outcome could shift alliances for years to come.
