Garcia vs. Vargas — The Main Event Preview
Mikey Garcia (39-1) is considered one of the best pound for pound boxers working the rings right now. Garcia is especially well regarded for fighting and winning at a bunch of different weight classes, including featherweight, junior lightweight, lightweight and welterweight. He's also been a champion in multiple divisions, and in July of 2018 he unified two lightweight titles in his win over Robert Easter Jr. Fans we electric over Garcia's next bold move, as he vacated those titles and turned down mandatory defenses to challenge another of the greats in boxing today; Errol Spence Jr.
On the Dallas Cowboys' field at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Garcia met Spence in a Pay-Per-View event on March 16, 2019. For the first half of the fight, then-undefeated Garcia kept the fight close with a technical approach, being aggressive in spots and taking the action to Spence. However, that all got away from him in the second half, and he got hit with several long series of combinations that proved to be too much. Garcia has been out of the ring for nearly a year since. Experts have speculated that Garcia has been waiting for a big fight, and now one may be waiting for him. If he can look good beating Vargas, it is expected that Matchroom Boxing will push for Mikey to face Manny Pacquiao for his WBA welterweight title.

Jessie Vargas (29-2-2) is a tough opponent in the ring for any fighter to face, and this former champion has already faced some of the big name opponents Garcia hopes to fight himself. In 2016, Vargas beat Sadam Ali to claim the WBO welterweight title, only to lose the belt in his first defense that November against legend Manny Pacquiao. Vargas is undefeated since that loss, although he did fight to a draw against both Adrien Broner and Thomas Dulorme. Vargas will also be dropping down in weight as he is highly ranked in the junior middleweight division, but is expected to weigh in as a welterweight for this fight. Could the bigger, more powerful Vargas spoint Garcia's plans for another massive fight?
