The featherweight belt will be on the line as Mark Magsayo puts his recently earned WBC featherweight championship up against former super bantamweight champion Rey Vargas. For Magsayo, a January win over Gary Russell Jr. earned up the WBC belt, adding it to his WBO international featherweight title. 

For Vargas, February 2017 win over Gavin McDonnell gave him the WBC super bantamweight belt, a title he defended five times before moving up for an opportunity to grab this one, as well. Let's take a closer look at both fighters and where the odds are headed between this pair of undefeated featherweights.

Mark Magsayo (24-0-0, 16 KOs)

Turning professional in 2013, Magsayo has defeated every challenger put in front of, 16 of which have been finished inside the distance via KO/TKO. In by far the biggest fight of his career, Magsayo defeated Russell Jr. as an underdog at the Borgota in Atlantic City, NJ in January by majority decision, propelling him to the #2 boxer in the featherweight division across all promotions according to Ring Magazine. 

The fight that firmly put Magsayo on the map, however, was his 2019 victory over Panya Uthok for the WBC-ABC featherweight title, a unanimous decision win in his home country of the Philippines. Despite having youth on his side being four years younger (27) than Vargas, Magsayo will have a noticeable size disadvantage standing a full 4.5” shorter at just 5’6”.

Rey Vargas (35-0-0, 22 KOs)

Making his debut at featherweight in November, Vargas returned from injury to earn a decisive decision victory over Leonardo Baez. Before making the jump to featherweight, Vargas dominated at the bantamweight level, holding a belt for seven consecutive fights and picking up wins against Ronny Rios, Oscar Negrete, and Azat Hovhannisyan, all by unanimous decision. 

Like Magsayo, the majority (22) of Vargas’ wins have come inside the distance via KO/TKO, however in his case, most were earlier on in his career. In fact, since 2016, just two of Vargas's 10 fights have come inside of the distance, with almost all ending by (majority) decision.

As of Thursday evening, things are much closer on the odds boards, as things are now much closer to even. For bettors looking to get down on Magsayo, William Hill (+105) currently has the best number posted, while Vargas backers would be best suited to head to FanDuel (-112).
