Takashi Miura (30-3-2 23 KOs) continues his road back to a championship by returning on January 28th on HBO Boxing After Dark television in Indio, California. Miura, who’s ranked #1 by the WBC, will take on #2 ranked Miguel Roman (56-11 43 KOs). The winner of the fight will almost certainly face the winner of the main event. Immediately following Miura-Roman is WBC champion Francisco Vargas (23-0-2 17 KOs) and WBO interim champion Miguel Berchelt (30-1 27 KOs) in another great super featherweight matchup.
Miura and Vargas fought in the Fight of the Year in 2015 in which Vargas came across victorious an captured the title from Miura. January 28th will be filled with punches in bunches and a lot of blood. Don’t be surprised to see a KO or two. The eventual fight between the winners will be more of the same which is great news for boxing fans and fans of the super featherweight division, arguably the most exciting division in the sport.
