Pacquiao vs Vargas Fight Preview

The 27-year old Vargas might just be able to turn the trick on a version of Pacquiao that will nearly be 38 with untold mileage on his body after nearly two decades spent at the world championship level. As we all witnessed the Philippines boxer Manny Pacquiao retired after beating Timothy Bradley in May this year – his first fight since a points defeat to Floyd Mayweather 12 months prior. But now Manny Pacquiao is back and competing for the WBO World Welterweight title.

“It is all about discipline and time management, “Boxing is my passion and public service is my calling. I will continue to travel both roads as long as I can do both effectively. I dedicate the fights I take on to my fans and my countrymen. They have kept me in their prayers. I fight to bring glory to the Philippines whether I’m wearing boxing gloves or standing on the floor of the senate.” Said said, Pacquiao

Meanwhile,Jessie Vargas took the vacant title in March with a TKO win over Sadam Ali. Vargas is 10 years Pacquiao’s junior but has a worse knockout ratio than his esteemed opponent in his career so far.The two men differ instance and that could potentially make it a more difficult, cagey fight. Vargas’ ability to capitalize on his significant height and reach advantage and how much speed and explosiveness Pacquiao has been able to recover will be key to the outcome.

“I am going to show that i am the Best in the Welterweight division and who better to Show it against Manny Pacquiao? Yeah, the Legend will probably see the Best of me on the evening of November 5. I Know it’s an underdog feeling when you turn up to the World’s Best Title Challenger at the moment and I will prove myself once again” Said the WBO Welterweight Champion Vargas
