Francisco Vargas vs Takashi Miura lived in a long shadow. It certainly was the kind of fight you might circle on your calendar on Nov. 21 as one to watch, if you were the sort of diehard boxing fan who was serious enough about the sport to know the names of two men in one of boxing’s serially sorriest divisions, junior lightweight (and, also, if you were the kind of person who...
