Vargas Feels Brook Doesn’t Want A Fight

Walking into this weekend’s fight against Humberto Soto, Jessie Vargas views a win as the road to a major fight in the United Kingdom.

While Vargas would love the opportunity to fight Kell Brook, the 29-year-old fighter feels that won’t happen anytime soon.

“Kell Brook? We’ve tried to negotiate a fight between he and I but, for some reason, he just wastes my time,” Vargas told Sky Sports. “So I’m not trying to get into negotiations again with someone who wastes my time because my time is precious. I’m in the prime of my career so when I negotiate I need to know [the opponent wants to fight] for real.”

”Kell Brook doesn’t seem like he wants to fight me.”

Following back-to-back majority draws against Thomas Dulorme and Adrien Broner, Vargas hopes to garner a big win against Soto and looks at Liam Smith as his next opponent on his road to title contention.
