JESSIE VARGAS still wants a rematch with his most high profile conqueror, Manny Pacquiao.

“I wanted it immediately after but they didn’t want to give it to me. You cannot push someone into taking a fight. I asked for it,” he told Boxing News.

Vargas lost his WBO welterweight title to Pacquiao in 2016 and is adamant he will be better for the experience. “Each and every fight you look back at it and you think what could I have done differently. Each and every one of them. Even the ones you won, you say how could I look better, I’ll do it in the next fight. You just learn from it,” Jessie said.

He will be an interested observer of Manny Pacquiao’s January 19 clash with Adrien Broner and gave his prediction to BN. “It’s a good fight,” Vargas said. “But I see Pacquiao beating him because of his speed, his endurance, his experience. His ring generalship is too much for Adrien Broner.”

“Adrien Broner takes his time and the minute that you take your time with Manny Pacquiao, he will take advantage of it and hit you with three or four punches. His speed is intense,” he continued.

“Even if he doesn’t hit you or land punches but if he’s throwing them at you, it seems like he’s landing them.”
