The 26 year-old is a 7 year professional, and has wins over former two-time world champion Alexander Munoz, former world title challengers Cecilio Santos, Juanito Rubillar, as well as well as contenders Luis Lugo (13-1-2), Marcos Cardenas (13-1-1), Eduardo Mancito (13-1-2) and Alexis Kabore (25-1).

"It is a risk going to England, but I'm not scared," said Vargas. "I know that I'll get booed when I go into the ring but I know when I win and step out of the ring they will applaud me. I am going to win this fight, even being in his backyard. He has that home advantage but I will win.

"I know the judges could be an issue. In fact, a gym mate of mine, Julio Ceja, fought his brother and won, but they robbed him. The idea is to go for the knockout otherwise they could rob you.

"It shows a bit of cowardice, not on him but on his team because they don't want him to fight outside his country as they know he'll lose. But I do trust that the WBC are fair and they will be neutral - the best man will win. I'd be very proud to take the WBC belt home."

McDonnell of Dorncaster, England is the twin brother of WBA Bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell, and has a record of 16-0-2 with 4 knockouts.

Gavin, 30 years old, turned professional is a 7 year professional, and got to this title opportunity on the strength of his victories over undefeated Scott Gladwin (5-0), Leigh Wood (11-0), Oleksandr Yegorov (13-0-1), Jorge Sanchez (15-0), three-time world title challenger Vusi Malinga (21-5-1) as well as Dean Anderson (5-1-1), Paul Econmides (13-3), Jeremy Parodi (37-2-1).

In his last bout, McDonnell took an 8-round decision from Robin Zamora on September 10th in London.

"I have to pinch myself that it's finally here," said McDonnell. "All the hard work I've put in over the years, it feels like it's meant to be this moment.

"I have seen my brother become World champion, I have seen my gym-mate Tony Bellew become World champion and I believe now I'm ready and to be let off the leash. I'm ready to become world champion. Two twin brothers on the scene, both World champions standing side by side - the Klitschko brothers of Doncaster!

"We were in the same boat me and my brother, fighting an unbeaten Mexican banger. Having home advantage is key and I've wanted that.

"I like being written off, I love proving people wrong and this will be no different. I really want to make a name for myself, I've always felt like I've been in my brother's shadow but I'm 18 fights unbeaten and I'm on the verge of a World title fight.

"Vargas' record says that he's big puncher but we won't know how good he is until we get in there. How much does he want it? Not more than me. He will have to knock me out cold to win it as he can't beat me."

"This will be a terrific championship bout on Saturday.  We look forward to kicking off  a terrific string of title bouts for the great boxing fans in the United States,"said Chris Schickedanz, Managing Director of Klowdtv.

I have Vargas winning this fight but, he's blowing smoke when he says Ceja beat McDonnell. McDonnell gave him a boxing lesson and sent him back to his dressing room crying. True story. Mexicans claim they never lose fights that…
