Vargas showed the heart of a champion as he dug deep to find the extra gear to overcome a very durable opponent.

Vargas lost a point in the third round due to a low blow but didn’t let that discourage him, as his combination punching and better overall ring generalship led him to victory.

In the co-main event of the night Alden Lomeli (5-1, 3 KOs) of Anaheim Hills by way of El Paso Texas was battle-tested, and handed the first loss of his career in his fight with Oskar Olmos Hernandez (2-3) of Santa Clarita, Ca.
