Undefeated Rey Vargas (17-0, 15KOs) and Filipino Ernie "The Rock" Sánchez are ready to battle this Saturday in Chihuhua, Mexico. Both boxers weighed in at 121.9-pounds. Vargas is well aware of the dangerous rival he will face. Sanchez is not only a training parter of Manny Pacquiao, but also has a very similar style to him.
Vargas said: “I’m excited for this fight. I know I will face a very tough fighter, who’s very fast and has a great defense but I will prove I’m the best in this fight and that I’m ready to fight for the world title”.
