He always goes backward all fight. I hope this coming fight he’s not gonna run too much. There’s gonna be a knockout if he’s not gonna run too much.

He then defended the title five times before the decision to move to Featherweight to challenge Mark Magsayo. Vargas made his Featherweight debut with a win over fellow Mexican Leonardo Baez in late 2021. He is the WBC mandatory challenger to Magsayo’s title.
I saw his training, his sparring. He’s always [going] backward, staying away from his opponent. In the gym, we’ve trained for different styles – slugger, a brawler fighter, and a [boxer]. Whatever his style is in this fight, we’re ready.
