Rey Vargas Feels Ready For Leo Santa Cruz Shot

By Miguel Rivera

Following Saturday's two round knockout of Daniel Ferreras in Coacalco, undefeated Rey Vargas (21-0, 18KOs) called for a fight with WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15KOs).

Santa Cruz will defend his title against Manuel Roman on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The event will be headlined by Floyd Mayweather's rematch with Marcos Maidana.

Vargas is ranked fifth under the WBC and holds their Youth title at the weight. A final WBA eliminator has been ordered between Andres Gutierrez and Hugo Ruiz, and their respective promoters are working out the details.

Trained by the legendary Nacho Beristain, Vargas plans to fight at least two more times this year. Nacho expects his fighter to become a champion.

"I believe Vargas will become a world champion. He is a very good fighter and listens to everything in the gym. He is very strong and punches very hard. He is the future of Mexican boxing," Nacho said.

Vargas needs to prove himself at the top level a bit more, even though he would be an improvement over the bums Santa Cruz hand picks. But Vargas is a puncher, so Santa Cruz will duck him like he does…

These are the kind of fights Haymon and Golden boy should be making for Leo.
