Exaggeration is one of the most common languages spoken in the field of boxing. Did you notice that undercards are always “stacked” and “loaded” these days?
In many cases, and probably most of the time, I think the press releases I receive are a little over the line. It’s too flashy for support matches combined with the main event. However, the October 9th card at T-Mobile in Las Vegas topped the list with a third dance-off between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. Indeed, the undercard has such an intriguing element that many people want to get there quickly.
Edgar Berlanga has the potential to become the next big boxing from New York, and will meet Marcelo Esteban Coceres at super middleweight waltz and fight on T-Mobile.
Julian “J-Rock” Williams will also scrap with Mexico’s Vladimir Hernandez in a 10-round junior middleweight match. This is the first battle of Philadelphia fighters since losing the strap to Jeison Rosario in January 2020. These two battles will be screened on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, FS1 and FOX Deportes and will be broadcast simultaneously on ESPN +. Prelim matches will be livestreamed on ESPN and FOX Sports apps from 4:30 pm EST for record purposes.
Coceres has a great record of 30-2, which may be confusing to some of you, but it’s not built on the solidest ground. Argentina lost to BJ Sanders in 2019 and to 15-2 Sebastian Papeschi on the penultimate expedition.
You may also notice that 12-4 Hernandez belongs to the Journeyman category.
I got it…
But what about some other battles on the card? Efe Ajagba (15-0) will fight Frank Sanchez (18-0) in a 10-round joint main event to put the heavyweights in the spotlight. Next, a step-up of 21-year-old Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson, who met Robert Helenius and Adam Kovnacki in a heavyweight rematch and another heavyweight battle with Russian veteran Vladimir Tereskin. I have a test.
At least, it’s no exaggeration to say that it’s semi-stacked.
Yes, the 16KO 17-0 Berlanga is very much preferred for dealing with Coceres. To reach the legitimate stacked territory, we hope Berlanga will step up to meet someone one step above the top 25 super middleweight, Demond Nicholson. But give me a break. I’m working hard to find the bright spots in boxing, but given the features and performance of this year’s sport, it’s not easy.
