Golden Boy Promotions on July 15 will play host to a card at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood that will have super featherweight world champion Miguel Berchelt (31-1, 28 KOs) of Mexico defending his title against Takashi Miura (31-3-2, 24 KOs) of Japan in the main event (on HBO).
Berchelt took the title from Francisco Vargas in January, stopping Vargas in the 11th round at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio.
The semi-main event will feature Jezreel Corrales (21-1, 8 KOs) of Panama defending his super featherweight title against Robinson Castellanos (24-12, 14 KOs) of Mexico.
Also, Joe Smith Jr. (23-1, 19 KOs) of Long Island, N.Y., will take on Sullivan Barrera (19-1, 14 KOs) of Cuba in a 12-round light heavyweight bout. Smith in December ended the career of Bernard Hopkins when he knocked out Hopkins in the eighth round, sending him through the ropes and onto the concrete floor at the Fabulous Forum.
