Berchelt vs. Miura, Corrales vs. Castellanos Winners Could Meet

By Steve Kim

A pair of super featherweight title fights headline the card at the Forum in Inglewood, California on Saturday night. The main event has WBC belt-holder, Miguel Berchelt, taking on Japanese challenger, Takashi Miura. And WBA 130-pound titlist, Jezreel Corrales faces Robinson Castellanos.

Is there any chance of the winners unifying their titles?

"It's very possible," said Eric Gomez, the president of Golden Boy Promotions told BoxingScene.com. "It's a hot division right now and some of the best fighters in the world are in that division. So for us, it's a natural and if any of them make a hit, then obviously there's going to be more opportunities on HBO and they know what's at stake."

These two bouts, along with the light heavyweight tussle between Joe Smith and Sullivan Barrera round out the 'Boxing After Dark' telecast on HBO.

Vasyl Lomachenko, who has the WBO strap is considered the best in the division, which is also replete with well-known contenders.

"We still have Francisco Vargas who's going to be coming back and he'll be in attendance looking forward to possibly fighting one of the winners," said Gomez, of the former WBC champion who was stopped by Berchelt in eleven rounds on January 28th.

"There's going to be more opportunities but look, with Miura and and Berchelt we can have a potential 'fight of the year'. It's going to be that type of fight."

And you can't forget the old war horse, Orlando Salido.

"He's going to be there as well. He's very interested, it's his division. It's a deep division and some of the best fighters in the world are fighting in that division and you can make some really exciting fights because of his style," said Gomez, who wouldn't mind re-visiting a fight that was once scheduled for this past December.

"Could you imagine Salido and Miura? That's a great fight and that's a fight we had made and ultimately Salido got hurt. But that's a possibility, there's so many different scenarios. We're excited."

There are a lot of great matches you can make the winners fight each other. Also either winner can fight salido, loma, vargas vs muira was a classic you can always rematch that once vargas cuts heal. You got tank…
