The Ohio based boxer, with a 21-5 mark, said he's been contracted to scrap with Junior Fa.

The New Zealand native Fa, promoted by Dibella Entertainment, holds an 18-0 record, with 10 KOs. In his last outing, he snagged a UD over ultra vet Dominick Guinn. Vargas, age 37, is a pup compared to Guinn, age 44.
