Get ready for one of the most intense matches of the season! Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas are all prepared to battle it out in a boxing match on the 29th of February in Texas.
The WBC has announced the Diamond belt to honor the winner of this sensational fight between two elite fighters like Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas to clash at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas, live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.
Garcia and Vargas are both multi-division world champions and also are proud WBC Cares ambassadors and role models for society. The World Boxing Council Board of Governors unanimously voted in favor to approve the WBC Diamond belt to be awarded to the winner celebrating this sensational fight between these exceptional fighters.
Garcia, a natural 135-pound fighter, jumped two weight divisions to 147 and unsuccessfully challenged Spence in his pay-per-view debut. Garcia is a former WBO and The Ring featherweight champion, WBO junior lightweight champion, WBC lightweight champion, and IBF junior welterweight, lightweight and welterweight champion.
As for his opponent, Vargas is the former WBA and IBO super lightweight champion winning the titles with a unanimous decision over Khabib Allakhverdiev. He defended these titles twice and then went on to win the WBO welterweight title against Sadam Ali but lost it to Manny Pacquiao in his next fight.
Vargas is the bigger man dropping down in weight and will boast a three-inch reach advantage which will be intensified by his five-inch height advantage. He also believes that he has a certain advantage over Garcia as he mentioned in an interview: “Youth, height, reach, speed, power.”
This promises to be a better fight than expected as Vargas is known for quick starts out of the gate and Garcia usually comes forward at a calibrated pace timing his adversary while looking to establish traps come the middle rounds. Jessie holds the natural edge in power regardless of Mikey’s walking around weight while Garcia has the innate ability to box, slip and counter without ever disrupting his own rhythm. Add Vargas’s height which actually rivals Errol Spence JR. and Garcia once again has to learn to cope with cutting down a larger adversary without sustaining the type of punishment he endured last March.
