Berchelt (35-1, 31 KOs) is riding on a 14 fight winning streak. A record he has accumulated since his first round controversial knock out loss and since then, became interim champion before meeting Vargas. Both made the fight a back and forth affair till Berchelt eventually wore him down to a TKO in the eleventh round. He was busy through out 2018, fighting thrice with his most recent being the 9th round stoppage win over Miguel Roman.
Vargas (25-1-2, 18 KOs), has been a good fighter that always brings to the ring a fight of the year contender, year in year out. He has won that accolade twice in 2015 and 2016, when he with a very badly bruised eye, fought back to knock out Takashi Miura in the ninth round. And the next year, he fought with Orlando “Siri” Salido in a seesaw battle that ended in a draw and most recently stopped Rod Salka in six rounds to open ways for this Rematch.
