Jessie Vargas KOs Humberto Soto in six

By Rocky Morales at ringside

In an all-out war, former two-time world champ Jesse Vargas (29-2-2, 11KO) knocked out three-time world champ Humberto Soto (69-10-2, 38KO) with a vicious combination at 1:48 of the sixth round of a scheduled ten round bout at a 151 pound catchweight. In a very rough fight, Soto went down in the first round from a low blow courtesy of Vargas. Not long after, Vargas suffered a nasty cut above his eye courtesy of a headbutt by Soto. While Vargas seemed to be doing enough to win the rounds, Soto remained hard-charging until the bitter end when he was finally dropped by a perfectly placed right cross to the chin. Soto was able to get up and continue but Vargas jumped right on him. After a barrage of punches from Vargas, Soto was dropped again hard and the referee justifiably waved off the bout with no protest from the Soto corner. Vargas was simply too young and too sharp for the aged warrior, Soto, whose last hurrah was likely his upset victory over Brandon Rios in his prior bout.

Anthony “The Magician” Sims Jr (19-0, 17KO) was the unanimous decision victor over rugged but one dimensional Vaughn Alexander (14-3, 9KO) in a ten round super middleweight bout. Sims best magic trick may have been to make the crowd, who had cheered the first four bouts, boo at various times through this bout. Sims Jr. was content to be the matador to the charging bull, Alexander, which was surprising given Sims Jr.’s 94% knockout ratio entering the fight. Sims Jr., with the win, remains a hot prospect but fails to yet cross over to legitimate contender. Judges scored the bout 98-92, 96-94 and 98-92 all in favor of Sims Jr. Continue reading “Jessie Vargas KOs Humberto Soto in six”
