The stakes have been raised for the fight between former featherweight and junior lightweight world titleholder Orlando Salido and Miguel “Mickey” Roman. Initially, the Mexican rivals were due to meet in a 10-round bout in the main event of an HBO card on Dec. 9 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. However, the WBC has agreed to sanction the fight for the vacant interim junior lightweight world title, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told ESPN on Thursday. The reason is because world titleholder Miguel Berchelt is sidelined because of a hand injury and unable to defend his crown. He was supposed to defend against Salido but withdrew a couple of weeks ago because of the injury and was replaced by Roman. When Mexico’s Berchelt (32-1, 28 KOs) returns from the injury in 2018 he will be obligated to face the winner between Salido (44-13-4, 31 KOs) and Roman (57-12, 44 KOs).
