WBO world welterweight champion Jessie Vargas is in a bullish mood ahead of his November 5 clash with Manny Pacquiao and intends to “surprise the world” by beating the Filipino icon.

Earlier this week Pacquiao confirmed that he will end his short-lived retirement to fight Vargas after meeting with Bob Arum, who promotes both fighters.

A media tour is expected to take place in September to officially annouce the fight, and Vargas revealed there a still a few minor details to sort out – though the fight is definitely on.
