Re: VARGAS, with different career choices, might he had been great??
I don't believe he was rushed because like amny have mentioned he had beaten solid fighters and champs in Marquez, Campas, Quartey and Winky, but maybe he inexpirience or maybe just his honor at that time prevented him from retaliating back with 3 hard low blows against Trinidad in what imo made the difference in the fight towards that latter rounds.
Against DLH he was just broken down. DLH had a game plan and excecuted very well.
