Heavy hitting Mexican, Miguel Berchelt, makes his first defence of his world title (the WBC featherweight world title which he won from Francisco Vargas in an all out war which took place in late 2016), taking on tough, Japanese warrior, Takashi Miura, a fighter who fought Francisco Vargas in what many believed to be the fight of year, in 2015, on the undercard of Miguel Cotto vs Saul Alvarez, a former world champion, as well. The fight takes place at the Forum Arena in Inglewood, California.

Berchelt drops Miura in round 1, to steal the early credit from the challenger, and with the positive start, he goes on the offensive, but is more methodical than expected. Miura has success, possibly does enough to nick the odd round or two, possibly three, but for the most part, it is all Berchelt, as the champion out boxes, out works Miura until the final bell.

It is obvious that there is only one winner as the scorecards are being tallied, but they are confirmed, and one of them, by judge Hurbert Minn, scoring Berchelt a winner by 5 points, is acceptable, but seems to be over generous to the challenger, whilst often suspect, questionable judge, Max DeLuca scores Berchelt a winner by a complete shutout, harshly, and Mauro Di Fiore gives Miura a round, but scores Berchelt a winner by 11 points.

Berchelt wins via very wide unanimous decision, and retains his world title, with a great performance, whilst Miura, a lot to proud of, a respected warrior, wisely announces his retirement after the one sided defeat.

Prediction,

This is a great little match up, it should be a battle, I think the fans will love it.

I think Miguel Berchelt, apart from Vasyl Lomackenko and Gervonta Davis, is the best fighter in the 130 lb division, he can punch, he can fight, he has a lot of overall skill, Berchelt is the business, and I think he gives anyone a tough fight, I think it would be awesome if he were to get the opportunity to fight Lomackenko later in the year. With his fantastic stoppage victory over Francisco Vargas, Berchelt has to be taken seriously as one of the best in his weight class. Berchelt will be the favourite, as not only the champion, but also the man who has less losses, and having beaten Vargas, who beat Miura, in a brutal slugfest back in 2015, on the undercard of Cotto vs Alvarez.

Takashi Miura is a proud fighting man who always comes to fight when he is in a serious contest, I thought he looked great against Miguel Roman, that was a good win for him, and of course, he played his part in a close, competitive battle against Francisco Vargas before being stopped. All round skill wise, I don't think Miura is great, defensively, I don't think he's such a good fighter, these may have contributed towards his defeat to Vargas. Miura is strong, athletic, tough, experienced in professional boxing, dangerous, and I think we will see the best Takashi Miura on July 15 in California.

I think Miguel Berchelt will win this one, and I think he will get the stoppage, after building up a long, legitimate lead on the scorecards (80-71, 79-72, 78-73). I think this will be an entertaining fight, I think it will be competitive, I think they will trade leather, I think they will each get the better of early exchanges, I think rounds will be close, they will be positive, they will both take shots and hit the other guy with their own, I think it will be a back and fourth war, but I think in the majority of the rounds, maybe 5 or 6 of the first 8, will be rounds which Berchelt decisively deserves to win, I think some of even his clear rounds will be narrow, hard fought, Berchelt will really know he is in a fight. I think after 6 rounds, the fight will become less close, and Berchelt will begin to take over, I think he will drop, hurt Miura, and the stoppage will come in round 9, when Miura has been down a few times, is taking a real beating and his toughness and willingness to simply stay not quit, will be the only thing he will have to offer to the fight at this point. I think Berchelt will impress big time with this victory, and a fantastic performance which is both well boxed, and popular with the boxing public fanbase.

I hope Berchelt gets serious attention from fans which he doesn't have now after he wins this, assuming of course, he does win. I think Gervonta Davis, and Vasyl Lomackenko should both watch this fight, and observe Berchelt as a fighter, I hope, they both see him as a future opponent, and a reliable work colleague when it comes to them wanting to defend their titles, wanting to win, and wanting to give the fans a great fight, because I really believe there are three absolute classics there, of the three, I think Berchelt is the weak link, but I believe if anybody is a threat to Lomackenko, Davis in the division, apart from the threat they pose to each other, anyone who will beat one or both of them, it is Berchelt. Assuming Berchelt impresses as I expect him to against Miura, then I hope he gets given the opportunity to fight either Davis or Lomackenko this year, or early next year, both, are absolute super fights.

For Takashi Miura, as a proud warrior in the ring who will fight until he has no fight left at all, I think the pressure which is on him to win this fight, will be pressure he puts on himself, he won't be expected by many to win this fight, I don't think many predict this to go the distance, but I think that Miura is under pressure to take the fight to Berchelt, and join him in a great fight, I don't think this pressure will make the build up mentally difficult for Miura, I think a proud warrior like him, is very rarely fazed by anything. I think if Miura does as well as I think he will do, he will leave the Forum, Inglewood Arena an even more popular warrior than he became 19 months ago, only if the fight is really easy, one sided, and short, do I think Miura will disappoint the fans, and if the best Miura shows up, I think that is extremely unlikely. If Miura was to manage the upset, then what a victory that would be, his take his career to another level, he has a lot to gain from this fight, and he'll know that, he'll know there is more pressure on the other guy in this fight, I think he'll try to use that to his advantage in any way he can, he probably won't be able to make anything of it becauseof how relaxed, at ease Berchelt will be, I think, but still, I thimk Miura will have plenty of belief, plenty of pride, plenty of motiavtion, and he'll try his 100% best, earn his money, make himself even more popular, and probably still get big opportunities in the future even in defeat.

Berchelt has a chance to become a major player in the division with a impressive win. Miura the brawler will be coming right at him, which should play to Berchelt's strengths of being a boxer/puncher. This is going to be a great fight for as long as it lasts, but I don't think there is any way we see a round 12 in this one. Miura looked even more shopworn than Vargas did
against Roman the night Berchelt took out Vargas in fantastic fashion, so he is going to need to employ some defense if he's is to stand a chance of winning.

It's going to be a hell of a fight for as long as it lasts, but I see Berchelt stopping Miura by the 7-8 round. If Miguel pulls this off, he has some possible big fights coming up in his future.

I'm not good at these things Champ.

I think that's modest!, but sure no pressure, it was just a suggestion about comparing write ups, it does take a lot of time sometimes to get the right words and to break down and analyse the situation regarding the fight, but what you got there is cool, just simply giving your opinion on the fight, breaking it down in detail, that's all it's about really.

Very good matchup. Excluding Lomachenko, who is at top at a level of his own, the division is pretty tight with plenty of equilibrated talent.
I don't think this one goes to the judges. I would edge Berchelt, but I wouldn't count Miura out so easily.
This is gonna be a fun slugfest.

WHAT A F*CKING GREAT FIGHT! I was expecting a war...turned out to be a technical fight...and I DO NOT COMPLAIN AT ALL....most likely a win by Berchelt, but I think we all won with this match

albertocastany's picture

This looked like a slugfest, but there were so much technical details that turned this fight into a sweet candy for boxing fans.
Berchelt chose to use his lateral movement and speed to keep Miura out of balance and overwhelm him through the fight. Miura was landing some ocassional hard shots early on, but Berchelt was commanding the fight.
As the fight progressed, Miura started to apply some subtle adjustments like shielding from Berchelt's left hook and pivoting whenever Berchelt moved to Miura's right. This helped Miura to shorten the distance and land some powerful shots that were really hurting Berchelt.
I have the fight closer that some other people, but I don't think those scores weigh in how much Miura was hurting Berchelt with better grounded punches in contrast to Berchelt being on his heels. Still...a great fight and a clear but tough win for Berchelt.

rorschach's picture

Berchelt will have to commit to his punches more, but I think if he did he would have as good a chance as anyone from 130 to 140 of beating Loma.

Champion97's picture

Berchelt is one if the most underrated fighters in the world in my opinion.

I'm surprised you and BK found 2-3 rounds to give Miura, I had it a complete shutout.
