Vargas Warns Critics: I'm Going To Beat The Sh*t Out of Pacquiao!

By Edward Chaykovsky

World Boxing Organization [WBO] welterweight champion Jessie Vargas (27-1, 10KOs) has warned the critics out there, because he intends to give Manny Pacquiao a severe beating in the fall.

Vargas landed the major opportunity last week, when Pacquiao selected him to become the opponent for his November 5th return at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao had announced his retirement in April after winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Timothy Bradley in their trilogy fight. The Filipino superstar was planning to pursue a full-time career back in home in the Philippines. He secured a senatorial seat in the May elections.

Not everyone is pleased with Pacquiao's selection of Vargas. Many critics would have preferred if Pacquiao would have picked WBC/WBO junior welterweight world champion Terence Crawford, who dominated unbeaten Viktor Postol last month.

Vargas disagrees with the critics. He sees no reason for a smaller fighter to get selected, because Pacquiao has been a player in the welterweight division since 2008.

“Crawford’s a super-lightweight champion, I’m the welterweight champion – isn’t Manny Pacquiao a welterweight? Why would he be negotiating to fight a super-lightweight?," Vargas told Boxing News.

Vargas predicts that after November 5th, when he sends Pacquiao packing into retirement, that these same critics will be tabbing him as the next superstar in the sport and singing his praises.

“I’m going to surprise the world, I’m going to let them know who Jessie Vargas is. Tune into the fight November 5, I’m going to beat the sh*t out of Manny Pacquiao and then I’ll be the next star, everyone will be talking about me. It’s plain and simple," Vargas said.
