Miguel Berchelt vs. Miguel Roman May Head To a Purse Bid

By Miguel Roman

Mexican promoter Osvaldo Kuchle, head of the company Promociones del Pueblo, has revealed that he and his team are willing to go to a purse bid set up a fight between his protege Miguel Roman and WBC super featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt, who is promoted by Zanfer Promotions and Max Boxing.

Berchelt, who will report in a few days to his camp in Sonora, will have to fight Roman in a mandatory defense by July, according to an order from the World Boxing Council.

There is a possibility that Berchelt may have one more optional defense before facing Roman.


According to Kuchle, they received an offer for the fight but it wasn't a lot of money.

"We already heard some offer from Zanfer that does not satisfy us at all. We already talked to Román, and most likely we will go to a purse bid, because we have the support of the mayor of Ciudad Juárez, Armando Cabada, a person who has boosted boxing at the border, and one of our plans is to bring this fight to the football stadium," said Küchle to ESPN Deportes.

The offer was placed on the table a few days ago that Zanfer was looking to stage a card in which Miguel Berchelt and Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada would be back on United States soil in the month of June.

"For now we are going to wait for the World Boxing Council to give us the date of the purse bid. We will be able to bid hard for that fight, because we want to bring i to the house of 'Micky' and we are sure that we can get it so he can have the support of all his people in the most important fight of his career," said Kuchle.

Berchelt, originally from Cancun, has a record of 33-1 with 29 knockouts after having already made two defenses of the WBC super featherweight title, while 'Micky' Román would enter the fight with a record of 59-12 and 46 knockouts, after knocking out Orlando 'Siri' Salido in a final eliminator last December.

Good fight for as long as it lasts. Berchelt is too seasoned and has too good a jab to lose though imo.
