Jessie Vargas Decisions Steve Forbes Over Ten Rounds
By Rick Reeno
MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Jessie Vargas (19-0, 9KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over former champion Steve Forbes (35-11, 11KOs), who came in on late notice after the orginal opponent, Alfonso Gomez, withdrew with back spasms. The scores were 100-90, 97-93 and 98-92.
The fight itself was a textbook boxing match from start to finish. Neither fighter took chances, nor was either guy in serious trouble. Vargas kept his distance, used his reach advatage, and countered an incoming Forbes.
Forbes couldn't really get off with much of anything, and Vargas kept a tight defense.
Vargas was boring in this fight.Comment by bose on 05-06-2012
Jesse Vargas can't fight he runs. He can't fill an arena. Once he leaves Floyd he will become a superstar and tell us how he was held back by playing the nice guy role.Comment by A-Wolf on 05-06-2012
