Francisco Vargas has had a steadily rising profile that includes a 2014 win over Juan Manuel Lopez. But in 2015 he really broke through with his fight of the year KO victory over Takashi Miura in an all out war. He followed that up with another insane war in 2016 - this time battling Orlando Salido to a majority draw in another fight of the year. If there was ever any doubt, those two fights established that Vargas is one of those blood-and-guts warriors that truly represents the tradition of Mexican boxing. Word is that Salido will be at ringside, and a Vargas win here would likely set-up a much needed rematch between the two.
Berchelt is a 25 year old fighter also hailing from Mexico - this will in fact be only his second fight outside of Mexico. He suffered his first pro loss 3 years ago, and is a perfect 9-0 since. Berchelt has some good potential, but he’s also never fought anyone at the level of Vargas. He’s a heavy puncher, as his 90% KO ratio indicates, even if those KO’s tended to come against pretty overmatched opponents. Right now, it’s hard to get a handle on exactly what his ceiling is, which makes him a bit of a wild card here.
