Yesterday the two men stared off for the first time and it seemed that both men really were ready, though some reports have suggested that Vargas did look slightly worried about coming up against the Japanese "Mexecutioner".
Interesting a few weeks ago it Miura who was the favourite, priced at around 4/6 now however the odds have evened out with some bookies just favouring the challenger, with odds of 10/11. With odds like that the bookies now appear to see the bout as a coin toss, suggesting just how even the bout is on paper. On Friday the men will weigh in before going to the ring on Saturday night in what could potentially be the latest FOTY contender.
Miura and Vargas, likely to bring fireworks to the Mandalay Bay!
