LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- The bitter feud between Oscar de la Hoya and Fernando Vargas will come to a head on May 4 in Las Vegas.

On that night, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, De la Hoya will put his WBC Super Welterweight title on the line against Vargas, who will risk his WBA version of the 154-pound belt. .

Vargas is 22-1 with 20 knockouts while de la Hoya is 34-2 with 27 knockouts.

Each suffered a difficult loss to Felix Trinidad, and the loser of this fight would certainly be on the outside looking in at a lucrative rematch with Trinidad.
