Former two division world champion Jessie Vargas has been beating the drum for a showdown with WBO junior middleweight champion Jaime Munguia.
Last month, Vargas made his junior middleweight debut with a knockout of Humberto Soto in California. Munguia was also in action last month, when he won a close twelve round decision over Dennis Hogan on April 13 at Arena Monterrey, in Mexico.
Vargas captured world titles at junior welterweight and welterweight.
Vargas believes Munguia needs an opponent that can put on a show, and Vargas is always ready to slug it out with his opponent.
Both Munguia and Vargas are aligned with streaming service DAZN.
"I think it would be a good fight, I have no doubt that I'll be able to fight with Jaime Munguía. He needs an opponent who can put on a show and that is me, I have the experience but also the people know that there is no boring fight when I'm involved, so I am sure that we could fill up any arena in Mexico or here in the United States," said Vargas to ESPN Deportes.
Vargas will be ringside on Saturday night, when Canelo Alvarez collides with Daniel Jacobs in a middleweight unification at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Eric Gomez, President of Golden Boy Promotions, announced that fans will be able to enjoy the show through the closed circuit in Las Vegas, which will be available in various locations of the MGM Mirage chain.
Tickets for the closed circuit will cost 50 dollars, that is, half of the cheapest ticket for Saturday's show at the T-Mobile Arena. In addition to the live fight, closed circuit and the DAZN streaming platform, people will be able to see Canelo vs. Jacobs in around 500 movie theaters in the United States.
