Unbeaten 2008 Mexican Olympian and fast-rising prospect ‘El Bandido’ Francisco Vargas (15-0-1, 12 KOs) of Mexico, but now fighting out of Los Angeles, California, continues his preparation under the watchful eye of trainer Rodrigo Mosquera, as he is set to take on Jose Aguiniga (33-0, 15 KOs) of Oxnard, California, in a battle of undefeated fighters, in the main event on Friday, May 3rd at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada in a 10-round bout for the vacant NABF super featherweight title which will be broadcast live on FOX Sports Networks, FOX Deportes and FUEL TV.
“Training camp is going really good for us, I feel great right now, and I feel very strong and we’re going to be ready for Aguiniga on May 3rd because I know the challenge that is ahead of me. This is a great opportunity for me and my team and we’re going for the victory.” said Vargas.
In his last outing, Francisco Vargas, who is managed by Joel De La Hoya, brother of 10-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya, defeated Ira Terry (26-11, 16 KOs) via second round knockout this past January in Las Vegas.
