On Saturday, April 21, we will be witness to an excellent matchup just above the junior welterweight limit as former two-division world champion Jessie Vargas faces off with former four-division world champion Adrien Broner inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

No matter what people say, they always tune in to see Broner fight, as evidenced by all of the pre-fight talk he generates, as well as all of the high ratings he pulls in. In Vargas he is going up against a dangerous foe and there are plenty or reasons to like this matchup, as broken down below.

A Welcome Replacement

Broner was originally scheduled to face off with unbeaten Omar Figueroa, but an injury to the ( ) year old saw that fight canceled and Vargas later stepped in. Figueroa was definitely a dangerous opponent for Broner, yet Vargas could be looked at as just as dangerous. Vargas possesses a lot of the same attributes as Figueroa, including an aggressive style and ability to land both upstairs and downstairs. Vargas’ style will definitely bring the fight out of Broner.

Broner’s Back Against The Wall

On the heels of his July defeat to Mikey Gacia, who clearly defeated him over the course of 12 rounds, Broner seems to sense that he needs to deliver a great performance in this matchup. He has switched trainers and is now training in Florida under the guidance of Kevin Cunningham, alongside Gervonta Davis, who is looking to become a two-time world champion in his matchup with Jesus Cuellar on the April 21 undercard. Broner looks focused in camp, yet that has always appeared to be the case for the Cincinatti native.

Vargas Has The Right Mentality

One thing Vargas has always had in the sport is the right attitude and discipline towards his craft. He’s taken every one of his fights, seriously, even in the days when he was dying for a big fight but fighting on smaller shows. He also stays in shape year round, as evidenced by being able to jump right in on short notice as a replacement for facing Broner. Vargas has also never shied away from a big fight or big opportunity.

After Vargas won his title in March of 2016 by defeating Sadam Ali, he then faced off with eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao. So too was Vargas petitioning for a clash with WBA/WBC world champion Keith Thurman, who may or may not be fighting on May 19 depending on what reports you hear. With Thurman looking for a less-dangerous foe, Vargas was left out, which makes the Broner fight a reality.

No matter how you look at it, SHOWTIME is continuing to deliver intriguing fights on all fronts. It remains to be seen what will happen when Vargas and Broner square off, as you never know what will happen until the bells rings. It’s a very nice clash of styles featuring Vargas, who is a little more aggressive, against Broner, a sharp counterpuncher will plenty of pop of his own. Each guy has good experience, though Broner likely has taken on a few more bigger names in his career.

This is a matchup that will entertain.
