WBC super bantamweight mogul Rey Vargas (29-0, 22 KOs) is  promising to deliver a knockout on August 26th, in Carson, California, with Ronny Rios (28-1, 13 KOs) on the receiving end. The fight will be televised on HBO.

A star pupil of legendary Coach Ignacio "Nacho"  Beristáin,  Rey, is day by day sailing forward,  preparing to  deluge  Rios with some sinking punches, explaining:

"We are working to knock him out!  I don't want surprises and much less controversies."

Vargas crowned himself as the king of the 122-pound division by defeating the Pride of Yorkshire Gavin McDonell.

"I always said that I was ready for the best, and the time it has come the time to prove it. I want to be remembered as one of the greatest fighters of this division.  But we must go step by step."

The title clash between Vargas and Rios is at the StubHub Center in Carson, California; And is part of card starring Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto and Japan's Yoshihiro Kamegai.

IN OTHER NEWS: Boxer Akira Yaegashi has started training with an eye to fight again, the former IBF light flyweight champion said.

“I am building my body up once again,” said Yaegashi, 34, at his Ohashi Boxing Gym in Yokohama. “I know that (my gym) will arrange my last fight.”

Yaegashi failed to defend his championship in May, losing to Milan Melindo of the Philippines by first-round technical knockout.

Yaegashi, who has previously won the WBC flyweight and WBA minimumweight titles, started training last week as he considers fighting in the super flyweight class.

However, Yaegashi is keeping his options open.

“If there is something wrong with my body, I will quit sparring,” said Yaegashi, who is 25-6 record with 13 knockouts in his pro career. “The better part of my life will come after my boxing career is over.”

The final decision will be made in consultation with gym chairman Hideyuki Ohashi.

Vargas can box and he did it on the road. Protected, is like Easter fighting at home and getting feel good score cards against a midget.
