Jessie Vargas: I Can Face Broner in Rematch, Lamont Peterson

Former two division world champion Jessie Vargas (28-2-1, 10 KOs) is hoping to secure some name value opposition in the coming future.

Vargas returns to the ring on October 6th, when he faces Thomas Dulorme (24-3, 16 KOs) in a welterweight bout at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

The contest will be Vargas' first since going to a close points draw with Adrien Broner earlier this year.

The contest with Dulorme will headline promoter Eddie Hearn's first card to be carried by the new streaming service, DAZN.

Vargas is on a mission to reclaim a world title, after losing his WBO welterweight crown to Manny Pacquiao in November of 2016.

After the loss to Pacquiao, Vargas parted ways with longtime promoter Top Rank and linked up with Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions.

Despite being contractually tied to DAZN, Vargas believes that he's still capable of securing a rematch with Broner or a discussed fight with former champion Lamont Peterson.

Broner has been out of the ring since the draw with Vargas, and Peterson has been away since getting stopped by Errol Spence earlier this year.

"For me it is an honor to be on DAZN. As a Latino we all aspire to earn a place, it is a very interesting project and my goal is to consolidate myself as a star, starting this October 6th in Chicago. I know that they are looking for more Latinos but for me it is a very big opportunity that I get to join the project and fight to be one of the best," Vargas told ESPN Deportes.

"[Being on DAZN has not ruled out the big fights] at all... I can still do the same things... I can fight the tiebreaker with Adrien Broner or go with Lamont Peterson or someone else. The idea, as I've always wanted, is to be in the best fights against the best fighters and that's precisely what we will do here."

[QUOTE=rolshans;19020865]And that's a legitimate reason to stay with Showtime (if it's true). But exposure? Man. The time for building AB into a star is over. He's as big as he'll ever be. Guy needs to cash out.[/QUOTE] As of right…

[QUOTE=ELHITMAN606;19020752]He said he gets paid more with Showtime and Haymon only reason Vargas jumped ship was because he wasn't a top priority and was likely going to get fed to Spence[/QUOTE] And that's a legitimate reason to stay with Showtime…

[QUOTE=rolshans;19020552]If I were AB, I'd take money over exposure. Exposure doesn't buy you ****, and he sure as hell isn't going to be in this game for much longer.[/QUOTE] He said he gets paid more with Showtime and Haymon only…
