By Miguel Rivera

IBO super featherweight champion Jose "Sniper" Pedraza is aiming to have two or three more fights in 2014, including a showdown against unbeaten Mexican contender Francisco Vargas (24-0-1, 14KOs).

Vargas is climbing quickly in the ranks and defeated two Puerto Rican boxers in his most recent outings. He won a decision over Abner Cotto and then last month knocked off two-division champion Juan Manuel Lopez in three rounds.

"I hope to return soon and then have a big fight in December," confessed Pedraza (18-0, 12 KO) to Carlos Gonzalez. "Fighting against Vargas would be a great finish to this year."

"After the fight against Martinez, I told my promoter [Gary Shaw] about the idea [of facing Vargas] and he liked it. He is very interested, so we are in agreement on that. At the moment I'm looking at October for the next fight."

I have more faith in Pedraza than any other PRican fighter, even above Verdejo. Pedraza's ain't perfect by any means, but at this stage he has showed great stamina and precision with his punches, with an underrated footwork. Vargas is Mexico's rising stock right now to me, but Pedraza might take ...

[QUOTE=Corelone]You are Vargas fan and say somebody is easy to hit? Vargas is a face first fighter, a good one, but straight ahead. Juanma was an old man, boxing, and Abner only won in Puerto Rico. Pedraza is not old and fights everywhere, anywhere. I still like Pedraza in this.[/QUOTE]I'm not a ...
