The activities around the “big fight” have already begun in Las Vegas where this Saturday, November 5th, the Thomas and Mack Center hosts Manny Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas.
Pacquiao, returning from a short-lived retirement, has his sites set on Vargas’ WBO world welterweight title.
Top Rank has put together an 8-fight card that includes three additional WBO world title fights. The card features WBO world 122 pound champion Nonito Donaire defending his title against the undefeated Jessie Magdaleno. Making another bid for a world title is China’s Shiming Zou, who faces Prasitsak Phaprom of Thailand for the vacant WBO flyweight world title. The fourth title fight sees WBO world featherweight champion Oscar Valdez putting his title on the line against the challenge of Japan’s Hiroshige Osawa.
