Eduardo Hernandez Targets Francisco Vargas Eliminator

Oswaldo Kuchle, promoter of the World Boxing Council youth super featherweight champion Eduardo '' Rocky '' Hernandez, is seeking a fight for his boxer to go up against former champion Francisco ''Bandido'' Vargas, as a key step on the way to challenging WBC super featherweight champion Miguel "Alacran" Berchelt.
 
"Rocky is young and we're not going to rush him. He showed that he's on a different level because he did something big against a boxer who was hard to knock out, by stopping him in the very first round."
 
"We will look for a rival who exploits Rocky`s skills, and I am going to ask the WBC to approve an eliminatory fight against Francisco" Bandido "Vargas, which would be very interesting. Miguel  "Mickey" Román and Miguel Berchelt are facing each other next, so we can have an eliminatory match in the meantime."

Hernandez (26-0, 23 KOs) was in action on Saturday night, when he knocked out Marlyn Cabrera (24-3) in the first round at Arena Coliseo in Mexico City.

Vargas (25-1-2, 18 KOs) was in the ring back in April, when he knocked out Rod Salka in the sixth round at Fantasy Springs in Indio, California.

IN OTHER NEWS: Maricela "La Diva" Cornejo (12-2, 5 KOs) scored a third-round knockout victory against Samantha Pill (3-1) of Fairmont, West Virginia. Cornejo, under the tutelage of Antonio Diaz, demonstrated improved skills as she pushed forward and landed hard left and right hands before stopping Pill at :41 of the third round.

Quotes from Maricela - "I feel good. I'm very happy with the camp we had with my head trainer Antonio Diaz," said Maricela Cornejo."In this fight, I just had to adjust to her being six feet tall. Fighting Pill just showed only a little of what I'm capable of. I can't wait to fight an even better opponent to show all of my capabilities."

"I'm excited to get back into training with Antonio Diaz for my next fight and showcase what we didn't get to this fight. I feel ready to take on whoever Roberto Diaz and my team put in front of me."

"I'm very grateful for all the support I have been receiving by all the fans and reporters, my goad is to train hard and give you all the best of me in the ring."
