Edgar Berlanga the knockout Brooklyn Kid & Puerto Rican monster is igniting the Puerto Rican fan base which the legends like Miguel Cotto, Tito Trinidad, Hector Camacho brought out. The new yorican or phillyrican fan base is good but the heart of that base is the Puerto Rican straight from the island. A Puerto Rican fan base which unfortunately 2 division world champion Danny Garcia couldn’t ignite.
Edgar Berlanga super middleweight is 17-0-17 K.O all in the first round. The 2020 prospect of the year is not only speaking the universal language that the fans understand in terms of his excitement in the ring everyone understands that language of excitement like fighters like Mike Tyson. A world wide appeal style. But Edgar Berlanga relates to the island of Puerto Rican fan base, because his ability to talk the native language Spanish, and his humbleness to always go to the island, show love to the people and the legends.
Unlike Danny Garcia who never learned the language or identify consistently as a Puerto Rican fighter or was more so as a Philly fighter. Edgar Berlanga walks around with the Puerto Rican flag each and every time to the ring and does interviews in Spanish. He’s a visibly PROUD boriqua, not saying Danny Garcia is not but his personality does not relate so much with the “cotto” fan base if you understand what I’m saying.
Berlanga like the Pound 4 Pound Knockout Queen of boxing 7 division world champion Amanda Serrano, has the ability in fighting style, appearance, hip hop heavy hitters is pumping him and inviting his to events and things of that nature. He’s capturing major fan base to make him the type of star that will put that pressure on Canelo Alvarez the cashcow of boxing to notice him or answer to him sooner or later.
Mexican vs Puerto Rican will always be a rivalry and looking at the super middleweight division which both campaign yet don’t have those dynamic punchers like a Berlanga and another Young Phenom in Davis Benavidez. Berlanga will have all the goods in the ring and out to bring that enticement to the table in a potential MEGA Canelo Fight in the NEAR future. I don’t believe Canelo Alvarez have a MEGA figh left without those phenoms unless one of the middleweight champion like Demetrius Andrade or Jermall Charlo beats GGG in a more impressive way Canelo did.
Edgar Berlanga sells the imagination and the threat that could do damage to Canelo or any fighter. Fans love knockouts which eventually mass of fans will love Berlanga and the Puerto Rican fan base will be happy to support their own massively like they once did.
