Bandido Vargas set for ring return Oct 19

Lightweight contender Oscar Duarte (17-1-1, 12 KOs) will defend his WBC Latino lightweight title in a 10-round main event against Richard Solano (20-2-2, 13 KOs) on the October 19 edition of Golden Boy Fight Night on Facebook Watch at The Gimnasio Rodrigo M. Quevedo in Chihuahua, Mexico.

However the co-main event might steal the show as all-action former world champion Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas (25-2-2, 18 KOs) will make his highly anticipated return against Ezequiel “Sheke”Aviles (16-4-3, 6 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight fight. Vargas has been in several fight of the year candidates.

“It’s an honor to be coming back to Mexico to begin another run at a world title,” said Vargas. “It’s been almost five years since I last fought in my home country, so I’m excited to put on a great show for everyone there and for all those who will watch on Facebook.”

Also, super lightweight Luis Hernandez (19-0, 17 KOs) will face Victor Zuniga (20-3, 9 KOs) for the WBC Youth title in a 10-round battle.
