Fernando Vargas is still only 31-years-old and although it's been two years since he claimed he was hanging up the gloves for good – it appears he is serious about comeback plans for 2010. can confirm that Vargas has recently been seen training at his old haunt and where it all began for him – La Colonia Boxing Gym in Oxnard, Calif.

Many thought they would never see Vargas in the ring again after he lost his “farewell” fight in an over-the-weight bout against Ricardo Mayorga in Nov. 2007.

While no firm plans for Vargas' comeback opponent have been finalized, one possibility is Hector Camacho, Jr.

Vargas and Camacho, Jr. exchanged words back in August and both claimed they would be willing to fight each other. It was a good-natured back and forth at a press event in Cleveland, Ohio prior to Camacho, Jr.'s fight against Israel Cardona.

However, the brief challenge was apparently enough to get Vargas thinking seriously about a comeback.

Much to the dismay of his wife, Martha, Vargas apparently is serious about his return to the ring. He has began roadwork and dieting again and he has dropped about ten pounds in the past few weeks.

Vargas has also partnered up with a nutritional company in an effort to shed weight. No stranger to the Mixed Martial Arts, he has even done some light sparring with MMA fighters.

Vargas' comeback is not the result of financial woes. Even prior to his retirement he was involved in several businesses from telecommunications to his own clothing line and he has since made the tranistion to boxing and MMA promotion. From all accounts, he is financially secure.

Boxing is a hungry mans sport. The only thing vargas is hungry for is burgers and cakes :banana:

[QUOTE=brently1979]I say he fights at Light Heavy[/QUOTE] He probably should. Only the height and reach would be a problem against the likes of Chad Dawson and Tarver.

Fernando Vargas would have killed Shane Mosley in his prime,you saw the first fight where a washed up,weight drained Vargas was making Mosley look like the overrated clown that he was,the second fight he had to lose even more weight and was dead before he even entered the ring. [QUOTE=Sin ...
