Jessie Vargas vs. Thomas Dulorme is Close For October 6

By Ryan Burton

Multiple sources have advised BoxingScene.com that a clash between former two-division champion Jessie Vargas (28-2) and former title challenger Thomas Dulorme (24-3) is nearly finalized for October 6th in Chicago. 

The fight would air on the streaming app DAZN and would be part of their first card to take place on American soil. Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua defends his WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO titles on September 22nd in the United Kingdom on DAZN's first foray in the boxing world.

Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn recently signed an 8 year, 1 billion dollar deal with the streaming service and recently announced the signing of Vargas, Artur Beterbiev, Demetrius Andrade, Jarrell Miller and other American based fighters.

The October 6th card is also expected to include Beterbiev's IBF light heavyweight title defense against Callum Johnson and Miller against a fighter still to be determined.

Vargas last fought in April when he battled Adrien Broner to a majority draw.  Dulorme has been active since last August when he lost a razor thin decision to Yordenis Ugas in a fight that the Puerto Rican was deducted two points for low blows.

With yesterday's announcement of the return of Conor McGregor to the octagon against unbeaten champion Khabib Nurmagomedov it is unknown if Matchroom and DAZN will move the date of their fight card to not compete with what will surely be the biggest UFC pay-per-view card of the year.

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;19000179]I'm not talking about excitement, I'm talking about the fights being competitive when put together on paper. Alexander vs Berto was an even fight because it wasn't clear what either guy had left, and I'd bet that that shows in…

[QUOTE=killakali;19000026]Lipinets vs Bone wasn't evenly matched on paper or competitive. Bone ended up making it competitive as Lipinets continues to get exposed. We all knew Alexander-Berto was a crappy fight when it was made. Alexander hasn't been in an exciting…

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;18998987]On paper; in trying to compare events, going off of results when only one event has happened makes no sense. Berto-Alexander was an evenly matched fight, Quillin-Love was an evenly matched fight, and 140lb Lipinets vs 147lb Bone made their…

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;18998753]The three fights, on paper anyway, aren't all that competitive, and Jessie Vargas is the biggest name on the card, and it's not all that clear that he could headline a show where he's the attraction. Alexander-Berto, Quillin-Love, and Lipinets-Bone…
