Jessie Vargas Expects Aron Martinez To Fall in Six Rounds

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated welterweight prospect Jessie Vargas (19-0) makes his debut under the Top Rank banner later tonight against Aron Martinez (18-1-1) at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. 

While Martinez doesn't have a ton of power, he is a tough fighter who has scored his share of upset victories.

On the latest edition of BoxingScene's official audio show The Boxing Lab, Vargas said that he is confident that he won't become another upset victim.

"Martinez has upset some guys but I don't think he's been in the ring with the type of fighter I am. On September 13th I have to prove it.  I have to prove I am better."

Vargas thinks that Martinez will try to come out of the gate fast tonight. He expects Martinez to change his strategy and try to outbox him after he feels his power. 

"In the first round he may try to attack but when he feels my power he will either try to counter me or try to outbox me.  Any option that he goes to I am going to blow him out with my style," Vargas confidently stated. 

This will mark Vargas third fight at welterweight.  Both of his previous fights at welterweight went the distance. He brought in strength and conditioning Axel Murillo for this fight and feels that with he changes he has made that he will stop Martinez inside of the distance.

"I am feeling strong and very confident. I wouldn't be surprised if this fight doesn't go 6. I did things different in this camp. I brought in a physical  trainer this time. Sometimes its better to rest a little so at the end of the  training camp instead of getting weaker I am getting stronger. On Thursday night I plan on putting it on display," said Vargas.
