Bradley-Vargas For Vacant WBO Welterweight Crown

LOS ANGELES -- Former two-division world champion and highly-rated pound for pound fighter TIMOTHY "Desert Storm" BRADLEY JR. and undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight world champion JESSIE VARGAS will make their long-awaited 2015 debuts when they square off for the vacant Word Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title, Saturday, June 27, under the stars at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.  The Southern California natives' fight will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.     

Floyd Mayweather Jr. captured the WBO title from Manny Pacquiao in their WBC/WBA/WBO unification on May 2nd. The belt has now become vacant and up for grabs in Bradley-Vargas. Mayweather promised to vacate all of his world titles before a final return in September. At the moment he still holds the WBC/WBA world titles at welterweight and junior middleweight.

These two gladiators boast a combined record of 57-1-1 (21 KOs) -- a winning percentage of 97%.
