Garcia-Vargas Set For Full VADA Testing
Even though a world championship won’t be on the line on February 29th, the standards will be there for Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas.
Both former world champions have agreed to full pre-fight random drug testing through VADA. The move announced over the weekend was demanded by both fighters, who have been regular participants in the program.
This marks Garcia’s return to the ring after his first chance at welterweight against Errol Spence Jr inside AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas in March of 2019.
After fighting for PBC, Garcia will mark his DAZN/Matchroom Boxing debut in a one-fight deal against Vargas, who last fought in April of 2019 when he stopped Humberto Soto in the sixth-round of their fight.
