        To say that Edgar Berlanga is a fraud, is going to far at this point in time in his career.
        That after 17 fights he's still being scheduled for 8 round bouts, now that is definitely suspicious..
        The boxing community has to understand that Berlanga has only fought one fight that has gone past the 1st round.
        For all intents, and purposes he's only fought one fight, out of 17 where he has gained any experience.
        His stamina, and over all boxing hadn't been tested until his last fight when he had to go the distance.
        You can blame him for having to much power, or you can blame his promoter for not matching him against better opposition.
        Coming to either of those conclusions you just might be wrong, because all of the other 16 opponents he knocked out weren't bums.
        Many of them hadn't been knocked out in their career's until they stepped in the ring against Berlanga.
        So there was no way that his promoter could've know before the fact that all of his first 16 opponents opponents would've gotten KO'd.
        What we do know for sure now is that he has to be matched against the top 10 - 20 fighters in the 168 pound division.
        No if, ands or buts about it, otherwise he will considered a fraud for not fighting those opponents who can continue to test his capabilities.
        He should be returning to the ring in August, or September, and possibly get in another fight in December of this year.
        Fighting, and winning against two top tier opponents would 19-0, then after another fight or two he should be fighting for the title.
        The best case, and most lucrative scenario would have him challenging the title holder at 168 pounds on Saturday before the Puerto Rican
        Day Parade of 2022,.
        In Madison Square Garden in his 21st professional fight, in front of his home town crowd, that would be a mega bucks promotion.

          In 17 fights the kid has only fought a whopping 28 rounds. He’s green as hell. TR/ESPN wanted to milk that 1st round KO streak as long as they could to build his hype. They basically stunted he growth in a way. The good thing is he showed that he can go 12 if need be. If any of the match makers at TR have half a brain, they’ll realize this kid needs rounds or he’s gonna get destroyed when a big opportunity comes his way

            Berlanga has a lot to learn, but at least has natural power.

              Berlanga is a hype job.
              power is overrated.

                not gonna happen. Canelos gonna have all the belts come September. Unless he drops all the belts after becoming undisputed, Berlanga isn’t gettin a shot them anytime soon.

                if anything he’ll probably get a shot at the secondary version of the WBA or WBC, paper titles. Aside from Canelo & Benavidez 168 is a pretty weak division. And none of the top 5 168lbers are with TR/ESPN so I doubt Berlanga gets a meaningful match up for quite a while

                  Berlanga has been kept safe and carefully matched. Anybody at the top of the division would have all them knockouts too if they fought the people Berlanga fought.

                    IF canelo becomes undisputed (IF) , there’s no way he can keep all the titles as each organization will have different mandatories which would he impossible to keep up with. Some of the belts will be vacant in no time.
