Jessie Vargas eyes Manny Pacquiao after impressive title defense




By Kevin Iole
TAPEI – Following Manny Pacquiao's one-sided victory Saturday at Cotai Arena in Macau over Chris Algieri, promoter Bob Arum said the Filipino superstar has his eye on a world champion from Las Vegas as his next opponent.

That would be Floyd Mayweather Jr., but despite all of the recent optimism, the odds are still against that fight occurring.
But if the most prominent fighter from Las Vegas isn't willing to sign on the dotted line to fight Pacquiao, then another one is all but frothing at the mouth, begging for the opportunity.

Vargas is a decent fighter but he isn't anything special. Who has he beaten to deserve a shot at Pac? DeMarco? Pac busts this kid up and stops him late. Another pointless tune up.

If he can't look good against Tony DeMarco, who can Vargas look good against?
