Time: 9PM ET 

Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs), a former four-division world champion, looks to get back on track after he moved up two weight classes to welterweight and suffered the first loss of his career to unified welterweight title holder Errol Spence Jr. in March 2019. 

"I'm very happy to announce my next fight against Jessie on Feb. 29 in Texas, live on DAZN," Garcia said in a press release. "I believe our styles are going to make for a great battle, and the fans are going to be in for a real treat."

"It's the biggest challenge for me, coming back after a long layoff, my last performance — horrible performance. I lost my fight," Garcia added. "There's a lot of questions. So I want to be able to answer those questions with this kind of fight. That's why we agreed on fighting Jessie Vargas. He's gonna get the best out of me, and I think I will bring the best out of him."

Jessie Vargas (29-2-2, 11 KOs) gets back into the ring for the first time since notching a 6th Round knockout over former lightweight champion Humberto Soto at a 150-pound catchweight bout. It had been anticipated that Vargas would compete at 154 pounds, but when he got a call from Hearn to see if he'd be interested in taking on one of boxing's pound-for-pound best, the lure of a big fight was too good to pass up.
