NEW YORK – The shine was still bright from a bruise and swelling under his right eye as Edgar Berlanga addressed the media immediately after his latest win.

He wasn’t interested in nursing his wounds or even the 21-0 record he advertised on a red custom flat brim cap, though. Less than an hour after he earned a twelve-round, unanimous decision over Ireland’s Jason Quigley, the unbeaten Nuyorican wanted to plant the seed for his next desired fight—a showdown with former WBO junior middleweight titlist and current super middleweight contender Jaime Munguia.

“That’s the biggest fight right now,” Berlanga told and other reporters immediately after his June 24 DAZN main event from Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater in New York City. “I want him in the big house. Madison Square Garden. That’s a fight that everybody wants to see.”

Berlanga (21-0, 16KOs) took the first step towards making that a reality when he signed earlier this spring with Matchroom Boxing, the primary content provider for sports streaming service DAZN. He made his debut with Matchroom and on DAZN with the win over Quigley (20-3, 14KOs), which saw Berlanga go the distance for the fifth straight time.

His win came two weeks after Munguia (42-0, 33KOs) rode a 12th round knockdown of Sergiy Derevyanchenko—a managerial stablemate of Berlanga—to a narrow unanimous decision win in their June 10 thriller. The bout took place at the super middleweight limit, where Berlanga is a rising contender and interested in securing the type of fights that will allow him to earn an eventual title fight.  

“We definitely want Munguia for next. That’s for sure-sure,” insisted Berlanga. “That’s the motherfucker we want. He’s Mexican. I’m Puerto Rican. I got the man here [Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn]… the best promoter in the business. I know he’s gonna make It happen for us.
