“Top Rank is looking for me to defend my title in August.”

When further questioned, he also disclosed his intention to unify the super bantamweight division, naming WBC champion Rey Vargas as a future opponent.

“After defending my title, I’m looking for a unification match,” he said.

“I’m most definitely going to fight Rey Vargas in the future. It’s a unification fight and I’m looking forward to unifying the titles.”
