Golden Boy Promotions has added another junior lightweight to their roster in 2008 Mexican Olympian and current prospect Francisco Vargas (8-0-1, 6 KOs).
Turning pro in 2010, the 27-year-old Vargas is riding a five-fight win streak after notching a draw against Bryon Gonzalez in his third fight.
“I’m extremely excited to be a part of the Golden Boy Promotions family,” said Vargas. “I know they have the resources to lead me to championship level and expand my fan base throughout Mexico and the United States. I look forward to making them proud.”
Vargas joins a roster that includes WBO titlist Adrien Broner and Daniel Ponce de Leon. Vargas will make his Golden Boy debut tomorrow (March 31) against Carlos Fernando Perez Martinez (12-2, 9 KOs) on the undercard of the WBC lightweight title eliminator between Jorge Linares and Sergio Thompson in Cancun, Mexico.
Vargas’ last bout, a first round TKO over Alberto Cupido in December, is available below.
