Sixteen fights, sixteen victories, sixteen knockouts, and sixteen stoppages inside of the first round…Puerto Rican Super-Middleweight contender 🇵🇷Edgar “The Chosen One” Berlanga (16-0-0, 16KO) has certainly become the show-stealer in the last 2 years as a prominent feature on high profile undercards, and stealing the thunder of many main events, becoming the talk of those nights.
There will be a time where he will have to showcase other nuances to his game, and go the distance to get a gauge on his conditioning, but even within his bouts which never lasted a full 3 minutes, he has shown some interesting wrinkles here n there to indicate that he possesses a bit more than just brute power.
That day will come…will it come on Saturday night? most likely not, but his opponent 🇺🇸Demond Nicholson (23-3-1, 20) will try his hand at extending Berlanga past the first round, then putting the young gun to the test. A plan is one thing, executing is another, especially when your opponent hits like he has two anvils taped to his gloves – but Nicholson packs a pretty good punch himself, earning 20 stoppages in his 23 professional wins.
This will be a feature attraction on the Emanuel Navarrete / Christopher Diaz Top Rank ESPN undercard – a card that features most of Puerto Rico’s best young prospects, looking to gain the notoriety for what they bring to the table. Berlanga will attempt to do his part for those who will be at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida.
