Emiliano Vargas returns Sept 15

Emiliano “El General” Vargas (6-0, 5 KOs) will make his ESPN-televised debut on September 15 at American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, more than 18 years after his father “Ferocious” Fernando Vargas headlined at the venue. Vargas returns just one month after scoring a second-round stoppage victory against Jorge Luis Marquez Alvarado last Saturday at Desert Diamond Arena. He will fight in a six-round clash against an opponent to be named.

Vargas’ return will open the televised tripleheader headlined by the IBF featherweight world title showdown between reigning champion Luis Alberto “El Venado” Lopez and two-time world title challenger Joet Gonzalez.

In the 10-round junior middleweight co-feature, Xander Zayas takes on Roberto Valenzuela Jr.

    • It won’t happen acording to his record he still a rookie so he gotta take taxi drivers to keep growing as a boxer

      • Feeding on tomato cans and getting easy knockouts doesn’t do much to a fighters career apart from build inflated egos that usually come crashing down once the competition gets better

  • I hope vargas brothers live up to the hype they bring! His father was a warrior that did not backed up from any challenge unfortunatelly, his toughness cut his career wayyy short! By the time fernando was 28 years old, he was burnt out and a done fighter from all the punishment received way early in his career by fighting elites! I hope them boys follow the right path and properly managed in boxing to be succesful like their warrior dad onced was!

  • His dad was was an outstanding fighter, and the fans loved him. Let’s hope they take time to develop his son and let’s hope his son listens to his dad and to his camp members.
