Smith, who held the WBO light-middleweight crown earlier in his career, is eager to secure another world title shot before he hangs up his gloves.

‘Beefy’ is 30 and three in his career and beat Anthony Fowler in his last bout in October.

Vargas has also competed at world level but hasn’t been under the lights since losing to Mikey Garcia in February 2020

Moments weighing in at the limit at 154 pounds, the former two-division world champion Vargas (29-3-2, 11 KOs) got in the face of the 33-year-old Smith (30-3-1, 17 KOs) and just started letting him have it, letting the Liverpool native know what’s in store for him on Saturday night.

Vargas has only won once in the last five years dating back to 2017 and that was against former super featherweight champion Humberto Soto in 2019. All those years without winning has Vargas like a steam kettle that is about to blow.
