Vargas effectively used his jab throughout the fight, but Garcia ultimately wore him down with brutal right hands and even sent Vargas to the canvas in the fifth round.

The four-division world champion earned a unanimous decision victory to prove his doubters wrong as he continues his pursuit to dominate the welterweight ranks.

Earlier in the evening, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (49-2, 41 KOs) stamped himself once again as the king of the super flyweight division with a technical knockout victory over Khalid Yafai (26-1, 15 KOs) to become the new WBA World Super Flyweight Titlist.

Julio Cesar Martinez Aguilar (16-1, 12 KOs) retained his WBC World Flyweight Title after a 12-round war with Jay Harris (17-1, 9 KOs) who hit the canvas once due to a brutal body shot in the tenth round, and Joseph Parker (27-2, 21 KOs) stopped Shawndell Winters (13-3, 12 KOs) in the fifth-round of their heavyweight bout.

44% power punches landed is some seriously impressive territory, albeit for a low volume fighter.

Vargas 101 ''power'' punches landed Might as well add those numbers to the jabs landed.
