This fight is for the WBC featherweight championship of the world with Magsayo and Vargas in the roles of champion and challenger, respectively.

Magsayo aims to make the inaugural defense of his title reign this weekend while Vargas campaigns to become a two-weight world champion.

Mark Magsayo’s Betting Outlook vs Vargas

Magsayo unseated a long-time titleholder in his last outing and is looking to carve out his own impressive legacy here.

This looming title defense has personal meaning to Magsayo. This is because he first was inspired to become a boxer when saw his idol Manny Pacquiao perform from the very same venue.

The line here reflects public perception because some in the sweet science community are seemingly not altogether sure if the Magsayo’s win last time out was a fluke.

In his sophomore bout of the calendar year, Magsayo could silence whatever lingering doubters are still out there.

Rey Vargas’ Betting Outlook vs Magsayo

Vargas is a former super bantamweight title holder and looks to expand his accolades to multiple divisions. He defended his WBC 122-pound belt five times before vacating it and pursuing aspirations in a higher weight category.

Vargas is now the WBC mandatory and has occupied that spot since November 2020. A leg injury and other outside circumstances curbed previous plans for the title shot to transpire but it all goes down later this week.

Vargas has the height as well as reach advantage and will likely utilize that to work the champ’s body while at a comfortable distance.

This is only Vargas’ second featherweight bout though and Magsayo very much has punching power that could give him fits.

Magsayo vs Vargas Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds and I do see this one going the distance.

Vargas is sometimes not the most defensively responsible and I feel like Magsayo can pick apart those holes. In this battle of 126 pounders, I see Magsayo having his hand raised once the judges’ scorecards have been read aloud.

Pick: Mark Magsayo (-110)
