Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KOs) is a ring legend, and a Senator in the Philippines, he is also boxing’s only 8 division world champion. Vargas (27-1, 10 KOs) is the new WBO Welterweight champion of the world and is hungry to prove himself against the man he witnessed defeat so many of his Mexican boxing idols.
For Pacquiao this will be another stern test against a young lion who is much bigger and has youth on his side. Vargas is motivated by the fact he is going up against a boxing great and future hall of famer, a win over Pacquiao, especially, if dominant could make Vargas a star.
