The "big" fight of the evening is Amir Khan v Samuel Vargas at Welterweight. On paper Vargas' record looks pretty respectable with his only stoppage defeats against Spence and Garcia, no disgrace there. However, If you watch him fight, although he is durable, he does have plenty of weaknesses. He's quite slow overreaches a bit and doesn't seem to pack much power. It looks to me that Vargas has been hand picked to suit Khan, but with a record that would suggest Khan is fighting a better opponent than he is in reality. It was a similar story with Khan's last opponent, Lo Greco, who had gone the distance with Shaun Porter, and only been stopped by Erroll Spence Jnr, a fairly decent record on paper, but realistically an easy opponent for Khan. I'm not suggesting that Vargas is not any better than LoGreco, he is, but he is nowhere near as good or as fast as Khan. Many pundits have pointed out, that "Khan needs to win this one convincingly", which is a bit of a cliche, although it may not be far off the mark. I expect Khan to come out of the blocks quickly and outbox Vargas sufficiently well to enforce a stoppage, even if it turns out to be a "British" one.
On the undercard, the rematch between Jason Wellborn and Tommy Langford might be worth a watch, with Langford possibly avenging his split decision defeat in the last one.
