Review: 2014-08-02, nice and close fight between Jessie Vargas and Anton Novikov: it gets three stars. Both undefeated, the American Jessie Vargas entered this fight with a perfect record of 24-0-0 (9 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.5 light welterweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Danny Garcia), he has already fought in 2014 beating then-undefeated Khabib Allakhverdiev in a bout valid for the Ibo and Wba light welterweight titles (=Vargas vs Allakhverdiev).
His opponent, Anton Novikov, has a professional record of 29-0-0 (10 knockouts) and he entered as the No.34 in the same weight class, he has fought once in 2014 as well, beating Javier Castro in May. Vargas vs Novikov is valid for the WBA World light welterweight title; undercard of Brandon Rios vs Diego Chaves. Watch the video and rate this fight!
