“I personally believe that Vargas and I have some unfinished business and that a second fight would be welcomed by everyone, fans, media, and television executives. I know we can have another fight of the year i 2017,” said Salido.

Salido will be at ringside in Indio, California on Saturday to witness the return of Vargas to the ring. Vargas will defend his belt against fellow countryman Miguel Berchelt.
