How to watch Miguel Berchelt vs. Oscar Valdez: Date, fight time, TV channel and live stream



One of 2021’s most intriguing fights will take place on Saturday, Feb. 20, as Oscar Valdez moves up in weight to challenge himself against tougher competition in the form of WBC super-featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt.

The 29-year-old Berchelt (37-1, 33 KOs and 1 No Contest) has recorded six consecutive defenses of his title since claiming it with an 11th-round knockout of Francisco Vargas in 2017. Berchelt stopped Eleazer Valenzuela in his last outing but it was later ruled a No Contest after not being sanctioned by the Mexico City Boxing Commission.

Valdez (28-0, 22 KOs) is a former WBO featherweight champion who decided to make the jump to super featherweight. He earned stoppages against Adam Lopez and Jayson Velez in two fights as a 130-pounder. Berchelt will certainly be his toughest opposition to date. 

It’s a highly anticipated showdown as the heavy-handed Valdez will look to stop a bigger and stronger opponent in the WBC champion.
