WBA #14 junior flyweight contender and former world champion Manuel ‘Chango’ Vargas (28-5-1, 13 KOs) won when WBC #8 Michael Arango (30-9-3, 24 KOs) could not come out for round six in a flyweight bout on Saturday night in the main event of the Tecate Boxing Tour’s stop in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The card took place in a special arena that was built outside of the Hector Espino baseball stadium.

In the co-feature, unbeaten bantamweight prospect Juan ‘Gallito’ Estrada (14-0, 12 KOs) impressively stopped former national Mexican champion Carlos Rodriguez (16-8-3, 5 KOs) in round two. Time was 2:52.

Unbeaten jr featherweight prospect Roberto Marroquin (15-0, 12 KOs) scored a TKO over Jesus Quintero (8-5-2, 4 KOs) at 1:40 of round three. Marroquin, from Dallas, trained for weeks with trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California before the fight.
