This dude gotta get a grip on his emotions, but he beats Vargas for sure. I'd be really surprised if he didn't.

Broner doesn't look right, like he's having second thoughts. Jessie is not intimidated, looks the opposite.

Vargas looks the much bigger guy... Wondering how big an impact the size difference will have
