Vargas: “It was a mistake to fight Garcia at welterweight”

Ex-champion in two weight categories, American Jesse Vargas, recalling his fight with the eminent fellow countryman Mikey Garcia, admitted that he made a mistake, having descended to him in welterweight (up to 66.7 kg), into which at that time he could fit with great difficulty …

“I would like to have a rematch with Garcia. The defeat upsets me because I was no longer welterweight. I was not already at the time of the fight with him. I went down in weight to arrange a big event for the fans.

Back then, I thought I could handle 147 pounds and still feel good about it. And I was wrong. But I don’t want to make excuses. We need to move on. So if Garcia decides to climb 154 pounds, we’ll talk about it, ”said the fighter.
