On Saturday night a battle of two undefeated featherweights WBC champion Mark Magsayo and Rey Vargas takes place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Showtime Championship Boxing.
Magsayo (24-0, 16 KOs) is one of the top Filipino fighters in boxing today and one of the current featherweight champions. He is coming off his biggest victory when he defeat long reigning WBC champion Gary Russell Jr. and claimed the belt.
The 27-year-old is inspired by the legends of the Philippines like Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire and would like to carry the torch as one of the greatest boxers in history to come from the Island.
Vargas (35-0, 22 KOs) comes from Mexican and is a former super-bantamweight titlist, he will have a massive height advantage over Magsayo and also has more fight experience.
The 31-year-old is ready to become a two-division world champion and believes he has superior boxing ability to the Filipino.
Magsayo called Vargas a runner and wants to catch him and KO him, but that will be a hard task to pull off especially when you are fighting a much taller, rangey fighter with good foot movement.
