On the scales Miura was the heavier man, weighing in at the divisional limit of 130lbs. That weight has been his norm recently and is what he has weighed in at for 4 of his last 5 bouts.
Vargas on the other hand was 129½lbs, the same weight that he was for his recent 8th round TKO win over Will Tomlinson.
Interestingly since we last looked at the odds we have spotted one bookmaker making Miura a 17/12 under-dog, though most appear to have the bout pegged as a true 50-50 contest. Though Vargas by TKO/KO/DQ is priced at around 2/1 whilst Miura by TKO/KO/DQ is 3/1 which appears to be one of the bets of the weekend.
Miura and Vargas, likely to bring fireworks to the Mandalay Bay!
