FORMER world champion Jessie Vargas emerged from 2018 without a win, but without a loss after draws with both Adrien Broner and Thomas Dulorme.

Speaking to Boxing News, Vargas said, “I don’t like draws. What I think is I won it clearly, the first fight against Adrien Broner, the second fight I could see why they gave it a draw and I don’t know argue with it. I know that I beat Broner. I don’t know why they didn’t give me the decision. Ultimately we learn from it, we get stronger from it, mentally and physically, and mainly it’s more experience. I know exactly what to change.”

He should box next in March or April of this year and is determined to return with a win. “I’m looking to come back with everything I got,” Vargas said. “2019 is going to be a whole different year. I’m looking forward to a 2019 full of success.”
