“Vargas brings a real threat and one I’m really excited for,” Benn said.
“This is a guy who put [Amir] Khan on the deck and a fighter who has been in with Errol Spence.
“He’s definitely going to bring the heat on April 10, and I’m going to match fire with fire — so it should be explosive.
“Growing up around my dad I was always naturally drawn to the sport of boxing.
“Once I felt confident in my abilities as a boxer, it was a natural fit.”
