Re: How good was Fernando Vargas?
Among the many fighters I rank into the "very good" category.
Strong, solid power and technique, he could show good defensive skills at times but proved to be vulnerable to the left hook. I like that he threw short punches and didn't wing his shots. He showed in certain bouts that he could box and brawl. I thought Winky beat him, but at the very least, he was highly competitive with an excellent boxer in Winky.
