Vargas vs Berchelt : HBO Boxing is back with a doubleheader on Saturday, featuring two fights at 130 pounds. Vargas deserves to be the clear favorite in this fight, but how is he right now, really? He’s 32, and though he hadn’t taken much punishment in his career otherwise, his last two fights with Takashi Miura and Orlando Salido have been wars, the sort of fights that can shorten a prime dramatically.
it’s great to see Vargas rewarded with another HBO main event. He’s earned it, if anyone has. It’s also nice to see HBO with a Vargas vs Berchelt fight on pay-per-view for now.
The WBC World Super-Featherweight Title is on the line when Vargas defends his crown against Berchelt!
