Berchelt-Miura HBO Tripleheader: Prospects Highlight Undercard

By Steve Kim

This Saturday night from the Forum in Inglewood, California - HBO presents a 'Boxing After Dark' triple-header that is headlined by the WBC super featherweight title bout between Miguel Berchelt and Takashi Miura.

The WBA version of the 130-pound title is on the line as defending titlist, Jezreel Corrales, who faces Robinson Castellanos.

The telecast opens up with a light heavyweight showdown between the hard-hitting Joe Smith and Sullivan Barrera.

Before HBO goes on the air, Golden Boy Promotions is putting on an undercard featuring some of their young prospects.

"On the 15th (of July) you'll be seeing Ryan Garcia back. He's a young fighter and every fight he's showing a little bit more and more and more, the training and the experience he has. So he'll be back, we're working on an opponent," said Robert Diaz, the head matchmaker for Golden Boy Promotions, last week.

"You'll also see Horacio Garcia, a stablemate of 'Canelo' (Saul Alvarez), just getting an eight-round fight, getting ready for something bigger maybe during the Mexican Independence Day weekend. Manny Robles Jr. will be stepping up into his first eight-rounder and Mercito Gesta will be facing veteran Martin Honorio, just to get him some more rounds, some more experience. He's been off with shoulder surgery so he's dying to get back in there again and hopefully a bigger fight after this," continued Diaz.

Doors open at 3 pm local time, with first bell scheduled for 3:05 pm. The HBO broadcast starts at 6:50 pm (PT).

Great card. Can Joe Smith Jr strike gold 3 times in a row?
