What Hearn didn't claim exists's a good possibility that he'll have reduced Berlanga loose, cutting ties with him at the end of his three-fight contract after he obtains bludgeoned by among the competitors that he matches him with.
Hearn isn't going to feed the at risk Berlanga versus a skill like Pacheco and enjoy him obtain damaged before he even obtains an opportunity to pay him out against Canelo before establishing him adrift.
If Berlanga was an enormous talent, there's no chance that Leading Ranking would have permitted him to leave. They would have maintained him as well as ramped him up to compel a globe title fight versus Canelo.

He has a substantial fanbase there, but he needs to be up against appropriate resistance.
