Jessie Vargas: Pacquiao Will Have Too Much For Adrien Broner

Former two division world champion Jessie Vargas is a common opponent for WBA "regular" welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao and former four division king Adrien Broner.

Vargas lost a twelve round decision, and the WBO welterweight title, to Pacquiao in 2016.

Last year, Vargas fought Broner to a twelve round draw in a catch-weight collision.

Pacquiao will defend his title against Broner on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as part of a Showtime Pay-Per-View event.

Vargas believes Pacquiao will have too many attributes for Broner to overcome.

“It’s a good fight,” Vargas said to Boxing News. “But I see Pacquiao beating him because of his speed, his endurance, his experience. His ring generalship is too much for Adrien Broner.”

“Adrien Broner takes his time and the minute that you take your time with Manny Pacquiao, he will take advantage of it and hit you with three or four punches. His speed is intense. Even if he doesn’t hit you or land punches but if he’s throwing them at you, it seems like he’s landing them.”

For his part, Vargas is still eager to get his hands on Pacquiao for a second time.

“I wanted it immediately after but they didn’t want to give it to me. You cannot push someone into taking a fight. I asked for it,” Vargas said.

“Each and every fight you look back at it and you think what could I have done differently. Each and every one of them. Even the ones you won, you say how could I look better, I’ll do it in the next fight. You just learn from it."

The draw with Broner was fair enough, he probably deserved the nod but Dulorme? That should have been an easy win for Vargas, not sure where he is at with his career now.
