  • Too big for Mikey! Vargas isnt a big puncher but he will beat Mikey down. Why wont Mikey fight Loma at a more reasonable weight!?

    • I think he just wants to build his own legacy. I don’t get it either because it would be way less punishment and more glory if he were to lose or win. But I think he really wants to win titles at 147. Even Paq-man is too big for him and he’s the smallest framed of most these bigger guys.

  • Two facts called my attention in this matchup: One is the way Mikey is taking care of his weight (if he does it), because this seems to be the same case of Brandon Rios, who never took care of his weight, and two is that Vargas is a real and consistent welterweight that had shared the ring with better fighters than Mikey Garcia. Based on that, I see this fight going the distance with a very high possibility of Vargas pulling a mild upset.

  • I love watchin Mikey fight but this is a lose, lose fight for him. He better off fighting AB again. Maybe its too late to make the Loma fight?
