This is a good fight though the main reason for that is we don’t know if Zepeda is still the same fighter after that brutal fight with Baranchyk. He didn’t look good in his last fight and also seems to struggle to make the weight which has led a lot of people to believe hes likely only 50% of the fighter he used to be. Josue Vargas is a decent prospect who has respectable boxing skills but is liable to getting caught. This is also a massive step up in levels for him.
I think Jose Zepeda looked less weight drained at the weigh in compared to his last fight. I think Zepeda should still have enough left to beat Vargas by decision after hurting and potentially dropping him once or twice. A stoppage for Zepeda wouldn’t surprise me.
