According to reports in the Mexican press we will see Thailand's Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (61-2, 41) [ชลธาร อ.พิริยะภิญโญ] return to the ring in either July or August to fight WBO "Interim" Super Featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt (29-1, 26), in a bout for Berchelt's title.
The report suggests that the bout will take place on either July 16th or August 6th and will see Chonlatarn's third world title fight, following losses on the road to Chris John and Vasyl Lomachenko. The winner would then be set to face WBO champion Lomachenko, who won the WBO world title this past weekend in spectacular fashion.
At the moment the details are a bit scattered with no set venue, but the story should develop quickly given the specific dates that have been mentioned for the contest.
