The possible date for the Berinchik fight is May 18

According to ESPN Mexico analyst Salvador Rodriguez, the bout between WBO International lightweight champion Denis Berinchyk (18-0, 9 KOs) and WBO second super featherweight champion Emanuel Navarrete (38-1-1, 31 KOs) may take place on May 18. The likely venue is the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, USA.
