Fernando Vargas Jr. Photo by Tom Hogan Fernando Vargas Jr. boxed and fought in a manner that was sure to make his father proud on Saturday. The 26-year-old son of the former two-time junior middleweight champ only needed two rounds to stop Alejandro Martinez on the Jose Zepeda-Regis Prograis undercard at the Dignity Sports Health Center in Carson, California. It was an appropriately 'ferocious' knockout, but Vargas (7-0, 7 KOs) was not in a rush. 'You can't just go in and force a knockout, you've got to set it up; that's what my dad is always telling us,' he said during the post-fight interview.
