Sam Vargas vs. Steve Claggett Barn-Burner in the works?
Western Canadian promoter and trainer Eric de Guzman, long time trainer of top rated Canadian welterweight Steve ‘The Dragon’ Claggett (16-2-1, 11 KOs) believes one of the best action matches that can possibly be made in all of Canada is his young fighter against unbeaten Mississauga, Ontario, based Colombian Samuel Vargas (14-0-1, 7 KOs). It’s a bout that would pit two all-action 24 year olds against one another in a toe-to-toe barn burner. Both men possess that come-forward warrior style and are all heart in the ring. Vargas captured the vacant NCC Canadian welterweight title in a February 2012 first round knockout win over Manolis Plaitis but has yet to make an official defense. Claggett has a potential headlining Canadian television date set for late September 2013 in Edmonton, Alberta, on the next exciting promotion coming from top western Canadian outfit KO Boxing Promotions. A bout between Claggett and Vargas on such a platform would be a marquee fight to showcase on Canadian television and would serve as a spring board for the winner to move on to bigger and better things at an international level.
