Miura, the previous WBC champion who surrendered his belt to Francisco Vargas in the 2015 battle of the year, appeared as a diminished form of that warrior.
The 33-year-old swung his energy punches in a frantic quest for a knockout and Berchelt, 25, spent the night keeping away from the bombs while retaliating with clean hits to the head and body in his initially title barrier in the wake of ceasing Vargas by eleventh round TKO in January.
“He’s battling folks who’ve been fight tried, fight worn,” Berchelt promoter Eric Gomez said. “Miura’s perilous, in any case, at this level, depending on one major punch to win it, that is hard. Miguel Berchelt battled a keen battle.”

While Salido said he’s been guaranteed the following shot at Berchelt by WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, Gomez said Berchelt needs to return home to Cancun for a battle against another person.
“I have demonstrated that I am the best by going up against the two hardest champions in the division,” Berchelt said.
In the co-headliner, the longshot offered of Mexico’s Robinson Castellanos to wind up noticeably a best on the planet with 12 misfortunes demonstrated an emotional in any case baffling interest.
Castellanos, in the wake of acquiring a World Boxing Assn. super-featherweight title shot at Panama’s Jezreel Corrales by irritating Cuba’s Yuriorkis Gamboa in May, scored two fourth-round knockdowns of Corrales to move his supporters.
The tireless Castellanos (24-13) was out-boxed through the following couple of rounds, in any case, and afterward was thumped around a Corrales punch in the eighth.
By dominant part choice, Corrales won by scores of 94-94, 94-93, 96-92, effectively shielding his belt for the second time.
The activity reached out into the tenth, when Corrales (22-1) coincidentally head-butted Castellanos under the correct eye.
“That head butt ought to have precluded him. It could have been lethal,” Castellanos said after a cut burst open under his eye and a ringside doctor prompted the official to stop the session.
An eased Corrales stated, “This is presumably the best battle that I’ve had in my vocation up until now.
