Vargas plans to KO Pacquiao in 8th Round

30 days before the much-awaited fight, WBO world welterweight champion Jessie Vargas releases a statement that he can KO Pacquiao in 8th.

Vargas said:

“I see Jessie Vargas winning in super fashion. I will stay on top and become a legend myself. He has a lot left in the tank, but I’m ready. I’m ready for the best Manny Pacquiao that will show up on that night, and it’s my time to shine. I’m used to being the underdog. We’re setting to outdo Manny Pacquiao when it comes to speed. We’re going to be faster than him. We know we can match it. We knew that before. That’s a goal of mine, to be faster than Manny Pacquiao. If he was able to reach a certain amount of speed, then I can increase it and take it to another level. That’s what I’m going to do on November 5th. I beat the guys that are future superstars with KO percentages of 80 percent. They’re animals. When I beat them and they say, ‘Oh well, they weren’t that good anyways.’ I just have to beat who is in front of me whether you like it or not. They want to see knockouts. I’m going to prove everybody wrong once again come November 5th. I’m going to show them I’m the real deal. I’m going for a knockout. The minute that he gives me that opening I’m taking it. The 8th round sounds very, very good to me.”

However Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao remains confident that he can win the fight, he is also looking for an impressive win by knocking out the current champion.

Pacquiao last knockout win was in 2009, 8 years ago when he knocked out Miguel Cotto in 12th while Vargas won his last fight via TKO against Sadam Ali.

Pacquiao vs Vargas will be held at Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada on November 5, 2016.
