Alex Vargas Makes His Return Against Mauro Godoy At "Rockin’
Fights" 44 On May 13
Undefeated Long Island fan favorite, ALEX “EL TORO” VARGAS
(12-0 4KO’s) returns to the ring with no easy task,
scheduled to fight forty-six fight veteran and former
multi-time Argentine Boxing Federation Champion, MAURO “EL
RAYO” GODOY (37-8-1 18KO’s) over 8 rounds in the
welterweight division. Vargas’ return marks the end of his
18-month layoff as he took time away from the ring to
complete Suffolk County Police academy training and was
later sworn in as a Suffolk County Police Officer.
Vargas made his professional debut at The Paramount in 2018
and has since fought at Star Boxing’s “Rockin’ Fights” a
total of eight times, with “Rockin’ Fights” 44 marking
Vargas’ ninth bout at the Pollstar #1 world rated venue in
Huntington, Long Island. A skilled boxer, and former New
York State Golden Gloves Champion, newly admitted 'Officer
Vargas' brings the action and excitement to his fights and
will look to pick up right where he left off in November of
2021, this time against the tough veteran Godoy.
Godoy will pose a threat to Vargas’ pristine record. He is a
former Argentinian amateur standout, and a multi-time
Argentine Boxing Federation Champion. Godoy has both the
experience and skill necessary to topple Vargas’ homecoming.
Godoy is 5-2 in his last seven bouts including a knockout
victory, one of his 18, which is more than the total number
of professional fights in Vargas' career.
Vargas had this to say about his return, “I’m excited to be
back after a long 18 months off. Training has been going
great and I can’t wait for May 13th to represent the SCPD
[Suffolk County Police Department] and put on a show for all
of my supporters and all of the people in attendance at The
"All of us at Star Boxing are proud of Alex for his
accomplishment of becoming a Suffolk County Police Officer,"
said Star Boxing CEO JOE DEGUARDIA. "We are excited to have
Alex return to boxing in a big way on May 13 against a tough
test in Mauro Godoy. We are looking forward to another sold
