Rey Vargas Will Not Return Until May or June at Earliest

By Miguel Rivera

If mandatory challenger Julio Ceja or any other contender expects to fight for the super bantamweight championship of the World Boxing Council in the near future, they had better get an alternate plan.

Because according to the current world champion, Rey Vargas, his ring return will not take place until May or June.

Vargas explained that the issue of his ring return does not depend so much on what he thinks or his promoters. The return schedule has more to do with the advice that was given to him by his doctor - who told him to take a break of at least two months to allows his cuts - that were suffered in his recent defense with Oscar Negrete - to fully heal.

For now, Rey said that he will start working out in the gym stay in shape, but without doing any sparring sessions.

He also said that he intends to continue working with Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain, after having had some communication problems a few weeks before the fight against Negrete.

"I think that right now it is the doctor who will tell me when I can return, more or less it is visualized for May or June because of the severity of the cuts, especially because of the severe nature of one them that even broke the muscle inside and will require more time to fully heal," Vargas said to ESPN Deportes.

"Sometimes I do get agitated and go crazy and do things, but not now, the cuts are delicate and I prefer to rest one or two months instead of coming back early and then suffering in each fight."

Finally, the undefeated world champion has no issue with returning to fight his mandatory Ceja or he's open to the idea of fighting a high profile voluntary opponent or even matching his skills against another world champion in a unification encounter.

He's always had problems with cuts on his eyes at least for the last 3 years and in the last fight they both came from butts on each eye ...taking the time off as necessary but it's no guarantee it…
