18-year-old Emiliano ‘El General’ Vargas, again impressed
the boxing world with his second knockout victory, fighting
at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and live on ESPN+.

prospect Amado ‘El Malvado’ Vargas, (4-0, 2 KOs), will also
be fighting on the off-TV undercard at ‘Battle of the Best’,

The heavy-handed southpaw Vargas Jr. has quickly impressed
boxing fans since hitting the paid ranks two years ago,
scoring knockout victories in each of his six professional
bouts, four of which have come in the first two rounds. In
his last start on May 14, 2022, he stunned the huge crowd at
the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, CA with a devastating first
round knockout of Terrance Jarmon.
The upset minded Martinez returns to battle after a shutout
four-round decision victory over Rafael Herrera Amezcua on
May 28, 2022. Prior to that he traveled to Madison Square
Garden on October 30, 2021, losing a very hotly contested
majority decision to undefeated prospect Pablo Valdez.
