This Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California, vicious punchers Miguel Berchelt and Takashi Miura will slug it out for the WBC World super featherweight title.
Miguel Berchelt is on quite an impressive knockout streak with a 31-1 record that includes 28 big knockouts. Berchelt has not eye balled a decision since 2012. The power punching Berchelt is coming off a January big win over Francisco Vargas in a very exciting toe to toe shootout.
Berchelt fights out of an orthodox stance and his jab is a stiff pesky dagger that is employed to cause damage on impact instead of just seeking range with it.
Takashi Miura has a 31-3-2 record and like his opponent also has dynamite in both hands with 24 knockouts. Miura has gotten his hand raised in five of his last six fights, and he’s coming off a January win over Miguel Roman.
Miura is a very heavy-handed Japanese boxer that fights out of a southpaw stance. Miura is a tough as nails fighter with a granite chin.
This clash is going to be an edge of your seat toe to toe fight between two offensive minded power punchers. So if you love action fights, this clash is a must-watch affair.
Picking a winner in this is tough since I feel that it will come down to attrition and will. I like Berchelt in this one since I feel he holds a slight edge in punching power.
It’s going to be a close fight, but I see Berchelt’s powerful combinations being a bit too much for Miura and will stop Miura inside of 10 brutal rounds.
