Berchelt Can Take 1 or 2 Voluntaries, Roman Pushes For Shot

By Miguel Rivera

After his knockout victory over Orlando Salido, dangerous Mexican puncher Miguel "Micky" Roman believes he should be named as the official challenger to the super featherweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC), said the head of the sanctioning body, Mauricio Sulaiman.

Roman (48-12, 45 KOs) has already sent a letter to the WBC, requesting them to issue an official order to make sure the title fight happens.

"I sent a letter to the Governing Board to be designated as the official challenger because it would be fair. I knocked out Salido, who was the number one contender, it would only be fair," Roman explained.

The fight between Salido and Roman, which was scheduled to take place on December 9, should have had the WBC's interim-super featherweight world title at stake - but that didn't happen because HBO regulated the contest from from twelve rounds to only ten. Roman came away with a ninth round knockout victory.

The fight will not happen next, as the two countrymen appear to be going in different directions for the short term.

It is not yet confirmed, but the current WBC world champion Miguel "Alacran" Berchelt could make a voluntary defense on February 3 in Cancun, Quintana Roo. The fight, as BoxingScene.com previously reported, may come against former champion Christain Mijares. The two sides are in talks and believe they will be able to reach an agreement.

While Roman could fight in Ciudad Juarez in a stay-busy contest before going for the world title before the mid way point of the year.

Berchelt has more than enough time to satisfy his mandatory obligation, according o the sanctioning body.

"Berchelt does not have to make his mandatory defense until May, so he can still make one or two volunteers still," added Sulaiman, who described Beltran as one of the best Mexican fighters of 2017.

Roman is a fun, action fighter. Berchelt beats the piss out of him though and HBO would give him a time slot to do it on. Might as well get it out of the way while people remember Roman made…
