Jessie Vargas Talks Herrera Post-Fight – Former WBO world welterweight champion Jessie Vargas returned to his winning ways with a unanimous decision win over Aaron Herrera last night on FS1.
Talk about a post-fight interview! Here our roving cameraman Marcelino Castillo is among a small group of press that catch Vargas as he leaves the ring after having his hand raised in victory. Vargas had just gone the full ten rounds against Herrera, winning by scores of 100-89 with all three judges but he was still totally responsive to the cameras and the questions. The Lancaster venue makes a fitting setting for the interview as the cozy building really allows the public up close.
Vargas will be looking to get back into the title picture at 147 pounds. Vargas’ last fight prior to beating Herrera came 13 months ago when he lost his WBO belt to Manny Pacquiao via unanimous decision. This match was about shaking off ring rust and getting back into the competitive mix for Vargas, and to that we must say “mission accomplished.”
