Rey Vargas Dominates Alexis Kabore Over Twelve Rounds

by Miguel Rivera

Arena Coliseo in Mexico City - Undefeated super bantamweight Rey Vargas (27-0, 21 KOs) of Mexico dominated Alexis “Yoyo” Kabore (25-2, 6 KOs) to win a lopsided twelve round unanimous decision.All three judges scored it 120-108 on all cards.

It was Vargas second win of the year. He faced Christian Esquivel in February at the Honda Center in California and stopped him in three rounds after the towel was thrown in.

Vargas stays on course as the mandatory challenger to WBC world champion Hugo Ruiz, who defends the title on a date to be determined against Hozumi Hasegawa.

The young Mexican fighter, who is trained by Hall of Fame coach Nacho Beristain, won three fights last year.

He picked off Nestor Paniagua in two rounds to win the vacant WBC International silver title. He came back in May to dominate Edward Mansito over ten rounds, and then came back again in September to dominate Lucian Gonzalez over eight rounds.

Vargas is gunning to finally secure his shot at the WBC title. The belt was vacated by Leo Santa Cruz when he moved up to featherweight. Then Julio Ceja knocked out Ruiz to capture the belt, and Ruiz got revenge with a knockout of Ceja in the first to claim the crown.
