The first card of Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing USA will feature former welterweight champion Jessie Vargas squaring off with former junior welterweight title challenger Thomas Dulorme on Oct. 6 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago.
Vargas (28-2-1, 10 KOs) put on one of his best performances in recent memory when he fought Adrien Broner to a draw in April. Vargas expected a rematch with Broner coming off one of the better fights of this year, but it didn't happen.
The 29-year-old Vargas, who was also a WBA junior welterweight titleholder, heads into this all-important contest 2-2-1 in his last five fights, though the losses were to Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao.
