Fernando Vargas-Hector Camacho Jr Would Be at 175
By Mark Vester
If Fernando Vargas (26-5, 22 KOs) decides to make a return to the ring against Hector Camacho Jr. (49-3-1. 27 KOs) in 2010, BoxingScene.com was advised that the fight would have to take place at 175-pounds. As previously reported, Camacho and Vargas exchanged words last week in Ohio during a media event for Camacho's fight against Israel Cardona.
Vargas last fought at 164-pounds in December 2007 and lost a twelve round decision to Ricardo Mayorga. In that fight Vargas looked very sluggish. At moment Vargas is walking around at a weight of at least 200-pounds or more. Camacho has fought as high as light heavyweight but recently he was able to get himself back into shape and dropped back down to junior middleweight. Camacho said that he would be facing ex-champion Yory Boy Campas on October 31.

Vargas was an exciting fighter but he was to brave for his chin. This fight is meaningless. Camacho is living off his father's name.Comment by Boricua78 on 09-03-2009
