CURRENT WBO world welterweight champion, Jessie Vargas (27-1, 10 KOs), will walk into the ring a massive underdog against former eight-division world champion, Manny Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KOs), on November 5th. It’s a role that he has grown accustomed to.
“I’ve always been the underdog,” said Vargas to TWC News San Antonio. “They always wanted to take me down. They never believed in me and look at me now, two-time world champion, and I will beat Manny Pacquiao because of all of that.”
The doubters, naysayers and skeptics, are fuel for the defending welterweight titlist. His eyes turn piercing and his tone intense when referencing people that previously wrote him off.
