A WBC super featherweight championship fight between Miguel Berchelt and Oscar Valdez has been rebooked for Feb. 20, Top Rank president Todd duBoef told ESPN on Monday.
The championship fight was originally supposed to take place on Dec. 12 but was postponed when Berchelt tested positive for COVID-19 in November. According to duBoef, the event will air on ESPN.
Berchelt (37-1, 33 KOs) will be seeking his seventh 130-pound WBC title defense. His most recent defense came against Jason Sosa via knockout in November 2019. Officially, he has finished 15 of his past 16 opponents.
Undefeated Valdez (28-0, 22 KOs), a former featherweight champion, is coming off a knockout non-title win over Jayson Velez in July.
Berchelt and Valdez are both 29 years old, and both were born in Mexico. Valdez is currently training out of San Diego.
