Vargas discussed his upcoming bout with Smith during an interview with Matchroom Boxing. He said: “Thankfully I’m now through COVID. I want to show everyone I’m better than before, I’ve been working on things in the gym, so it’s not like I’ve had a two-year lay-off.
“Liam is talking a lot, the fire is burning inside me. You don’t trash talk me, I’m coming in a different person. This will be an action-packed fight. I’ll exploit all of his weaknesses and take him out – My goal is to knock him out and retire him!
“It’s going to be an amazing night. Amanda and Katie are trailblazers for the sport, and I’m honoured to be a part of a historic event in New York.”
Smith also discussed his encounter with the 29-3-2 Vargas, saying: “I’m buzzing and proud to be fighting at Madison Square Garden. It’s one I can tick off my bucket list now along with Las Vegas; MSG is the pinnacle of boxing and everything happens for a reason so I am happy to be heading to New York on April 30.
“The main event is fantastic, Katie is always in exciting fights, and I am sure there will be lots of British and Irish fans there that will be backing me too.
“This fight is an itch that has needed scratching for a long time now and I want to beat Jessie and beat him well and move on. I hope that he turns up fit and healthy this time as I am aiming to retire him and send him into politics.
“He wants to move into politics, and I will give him a reason to concentrate on that 100 per cent.
“Jessie stopping me? I find that highly unlikely when only one person has done that and Jessie is no Canelo Alvarez. I fully intend on stopping him, being the first man to do it and adding my name to the names that have beaten him.”
