Berchelt-Salido in Play, Vargas vs. Gonzalez Eliminator Ordered

As BoxingScene.com reported last week, there are ongoing discussions for Miguel Berchelt of Mexico to make the second defense of his WBC super featherweight world title against his countryman, former world champion Orlando Salido.

According to World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, his organization was advised that Berchelt vs. Salido was being negotiated for a date in December.

Salido was initially going to return on November 25, as part of the HBO televised undercard to Sergey Kovalev's return at the Theatre in New York's Madison Square Garden. Those plans were changed, with an HBO date in December being discussed.

Berchelt (32-1, 28 KOs) had a breakout year in 2017. He captured the world title in January with a stoppage victory over Francisco Vargas, and then followed things up with a dominating decision win over Takashi Miura in a mandatory defense.

He is now looking at the idea of a third fight on a date in December.

Salido, 36, is 44-13-4 and 31 KOs. He was featherweight and super featherweight world champion and has been involved in several Fight of The Year contenders, including the 2016 FOTY winner when he fought a twelve round war with Francisco Vargas for the 130-pound green and gold belt.

Salido has been out of the ring since May when he stopped Aristides Perez in Mexico.

Sulaiman reveals that his organization also ordered a final WBC eliminator between Vargas and former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez.

Vargas (23-1-2, 17 KOs), who suffered several bad cuts in the contest, has been out of the ring since getting stopped by Berchelt in January. He is likely not going to fight again until 2018, but recently there has been talk of taking a fight before the end of the year. 

One of the biggest one-punch hitters in the game, Gonzalez (64-10, 54 KOs) has picked up six victories, including five by knockout, since he dropped an upset decision to Jonathan Oquendo in 2015.
