However, Edgar Berlanga has inaugurated the saga as he stopped Bellows within the first round, and it wasn’t even a close contest. Just like all his previous fights, Berlanga had a quick day at work, leaving no doubts inside the ring. There has been no boxer who has seen the second round against him. That said, Berlanga is a genuine threat to the division and is climbing the ladder swiftly.
If he continues with his intense dominance, he is expected to be a world champion soon. There’s no way we can write him off from the title tale, especially when he is on a 15 first-round KO win streak.
Looking at his ongoing performances, Edgar Berlanga can be matched up against any of the A-listers of his division at this point. From Dani Jacobs, Billy Saunders to Canelo Alvarez, there are many superstars in the super middleweight division.
Thus, it is safe to believe that Berlanga wouldn’t run out of legitimate contenders anytime soon. Riding on a stellar win streak, he still has a long way to cover in the sport.
