Danny Garcia Admits Concern: Vargas Knows How To Win

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC welterweight world champion Danny "Swift" Garcia (32-0, 18 KOs) is not overlooking his upcoming opponent, Colombia's Samuel Vargas (25-2-1, 13 KOs).

Vargas is a huge underdog in the fight. The WBC would only allow Garcia to move forward with the fight as long as it was a ten round non-title encounter.

Garcia vs. Vargas will headline a televised tripleheader on Spike TV, as part of the Premier Boxing Champions series. The event takes place on November 12 from Temple University's Liacouras Center in Philadelphia.

Garcia has a big payday riding on the fight. If he wins, there is a deal in place to unify with WBA welterweight champion Keith 'One Time' Thurman in the first quarter of 2017.

Part of the reason why Vargas is tabbed as a big underdog, is how easily he was dispatched in four rounds last year by unbeaten welterweight contender Errol Spence.

Just about every expert has labeled the fight as a mismatch, but Garcia refuses to view it in that light. He sees Vargas as a dangerous opponent.

"I can't look past Samuel Vargas and I know his trainer has a couple tricks up his sleeve. I know they're going to come to fight, but I will never underestimate anyone. I've learned my lessons to become the champion I am today," Garcia said.
 
"I know Vargas knows how to win. He's won a lot in his career. I'm going to go out there and just fight. If it goes the distance, then it does. I can't underestimate him. I'm going to put on a great show and dominate."

Since yesterday's announcement of this fight, Garcia has been big target on social media. He lets his team, led by his father/trainer Angel Garcia, make the decisions and he places his faith in their direction.

"I have a good team around me," Garcia said. "I'm at the point in my career where I'm working smarter and harder. Come November 12 we want to give the city of Philadelphia a night to remember. I can't overlook this fight, but I guarantee that I'm going to unify titles at 147 pounds soon."
