By Steve Kim

Multiple sources have advised that a bout between two-division beltholder Tim Bradley (31-1-1, 12KOs) and WBA 'regular' 140-pound champion Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9KOs) is imminent for June 27th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, in  a bout that will be televised by HBO.

Bradley, was last seen on December 6th getting held to a disputed  12-round draw versus Diego Chaves. During that fight he suffered severe swelling on the left side of his face after bumping heads with the Argentinian in the early rounds. Vargas, the reigning WBA super lightweight titlist defeated Antonio Demarco on the Manny Pacquiao-Chris Algieri undercard in Macoa on November 22nd.

Bradley-Vargas will be a welterweight contest.

[QUOTE=John Locke;15658447]Yep. It's not a bad match up honestly. Vargas is a good fighter, he lacks power but has decent all round ability. I see Bradley winning an 8-4 type of fight, similar to the Chaves fight.[/QUOTE] Fact is, Bradley/Chaves…
