Jessie Vargas: No Offer For Khan, Broner Rematch is Likely

Former two division world champion Jessie Vargas indicates that he's never been approached for a fight with Amir Khan - despite the Bolton star listing him as a potential opponent in several interviews.

Last month, Vargas fought four division champion Adrien Broner to a close twelve round draw at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The contest took place at a catch-weight of 144-pounds.

Vargas would like to face Khan - who returned to the ring last month after being inactive for nearly two years, but there has been no offer or negotiations regarding the fight.

"I'm open to facing Khan. If my team are interested then I'm interested and we can make it happen," Vargas said, speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.

"He's thrown my name out a few times but there's been no serious offer or negotiations yet, as I know of. I am very grateful for my UK fans and if they're interested in a fight for me, we will do our upmost to pursue it and make it happen, without a doubt."

According to Vargas, it appears likely that a rematch with Broner will happen - before anything else.

After their draw verdict, both boxers were very unsatisfied and both were calling for an immediate rematch.

"We are open to making all fights happen but, at the moment, I believe the rematch with Broner will happen first.

"There have been firm talks of a return bout since the first fight and we hope to finalise things and make an announcement very, very, soon. I lost all respect for Broner after we fought and it's now time to settle our score."

Rematch with Broner makes sense financially and it's unfinished business. I wonder what weight division it will be at.

I think Vargas will try harder to improve and correct mistakes than Broner and he will win the rematch.Khan will probably fight another easy to beat guy and proclaims his greatness after he wins.

No offer from Khan. Not for Khan.

As much as I dislike him I think Broner wins the rematch.
