Fernando Vargas vs. Ricardo Mayorga on Sept. 8? Recommend this page Printable version



By Mark Vester

The Ventura County Star reports that the current tentative date for the grudge match between Fernando Vargas and Ricardo Mayorga is now September 8, at a Los Angeles venue to be determined. The paper interviewed Vargas, who gave them the latest date and says that he will co-promote the event under his new promotional company, Vargas Entertainment Promotions.

Vargas is sticking to his guns that Mayorga will be the final bout of his career. The fight will be held at a catch-weight of 162-pounds. According to Vargas, the strain of making the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds is too much for his body to take.

"That 8 pounds is the world," Vargas said, "and people don't understand that. I've got one more great fight in me. People can say what they want to say. This will be the last hurrah. Win, lose or draw. That's it."

haha aight. i like his antics, i always liked him because he was a breath of dirty air to me. We had all these fantastic boxers or punchers and then comes mayorga who doesnt give a crap and kills forrest twice, and at that time i was upset at forrest because of what he did to mosley, but i like mayorga because of the battle him and tito had.

ive always liked vargas, he's always been great to watch and has a lot of heart.

the mouths power is nil above 147 and this fight being at 160-162 will play into vargas hands. im looking for a diffrent fernando in this fight, he wont be weight drained like in the second mosley fight and i fully expect him to stop the mouth around 8.

Vargas will dominate this fight up until the point where he knocks Mayorga out in he middle to late rounds. I don't really care for either but Vargas is the lesser evil.

its not about weight drain with vargas, its his back. I feel sorry for the guy because i know what its like to have to try and fight with a bad back. He looked so stiff in the 2nd mosley fight, i just dont think he can do it anymore because of his back, if it werent for his back, he would be a top contender now adays being only in his 20's and all the greats are retiring and stuff.

well I don't think Vargas should be fighting at all . I would not be surprised to see Mayorga knock him out. Its a shame that Vargas has to go out this way. Mayorga will walk down Vargas Vargas does not have the power to keep him off and Mayorga has good power more so then Mosley. That's my prediction. Just for the record I would prefer to see Vargas win I just don't think he has much left.

well, vargas will never land the punches that delahoya did. And delahoya knocked mayorga with alot of straight punches. Those can add up to alot more than one punch. As for this is a who cares fight, yeah i agree, but i do infact care, just beucase i like both fighters. I would rather see two guys getting ready to get out of the game fight each other than them fight two nobodies and win and think they stil have a chance to compete.

i will watch this as long as its not PPV. Over all i think it will be a good fight. Vargas is a punk but the man can fight... I don't really know any info on his back issue. But that sucks if its true... anyway I think if Vargas comes tweaked and peaked he will win this fight.
