Jessie Vargas Inks With Cameron Dunkin, Top Rank Bound?

By Rick Reeno

The rumors are true. BoxingScene.com has received confirmation that undefeated welterweight contender Jessie Vargas (19-0, 9KOs) has indeed signed a contract with influential boxing manager Cameron Dunkin.

"I've known Jessie since he was 16-years-old. He's been a friend of mine for a long time. He recently called me and asked me to represent him. It's going to be a pleasure to represent Jessie and guide his career. Jessie is a great kid and a great talent," Dunkin told BoxingScene.com.

Several sources have indicated to BoxingScene that Top Rank is very interested in Vargas. Apparently, Vargas' contract with Mayweather Promotions has expired and the boxer is currently a promotional free agent.

Dunkin would neither confirm or deny the possibility of his boxer heading over to Top Rank. According to Dunkin, Vargas' options are currently being evaluated and a final decision could be coming in the next couple of days.

"Right now we're looking at the best possible options out there for Jessie. The kid is great talent and we're going to choose the best direction to take his career to the next level," Dunkin said.

Some of the boxers in Dunkin's stable include Timothy Bradley, Kelly Pavlik, Nonito Donaire, Mikey Garcia, James Kirkland, Brandon Rios and many others.

I would like to hear why he jumped ship? Did he not feel he was getting enough exposure? His strength of schedule wasn't good enough? Not enough money? What?

[QUOTE=cactusEG;12212177]Really, I mean how far could Mayweather take him anyways ?[/QUOTE] ^^^This. Mayweather Promotions isn't a licensed promotional company in the State of Nevada. Like someone said I think he'll sign with Golden Boy.
