WBA super featherweight champion Jessie Vargas won the championship last week for her maiden title defense against Yusef El Zawahiri (L-R).
Vargas is the second WBA fighter to claim the title in a super-middleweight division, beating undefeated challenger Nasser Al-Khelaifi i더킹카지노n April 2013.
El Zawahiri fought the only challenger to the champion at super-middleweight, and despite having a five-round decision win, Vargas was able to take care of him as he went into retirement following the bout.
El Zawahiri made his professional MMA debut in 2004 and is currently ranked sixth on the all-time world rankings.
Vargas won her first defense at 147 pounds, and it was her second win on the card, as she defeated Nasser Al-Khelaifi by카지노 사이트 first-round stoppage during the third round of their fight last month at “La Raza.”
“In this 바카라사이트weight class, one can say anything,” Vargas told ESPN.com after her victory. “I will fight for that title and for the world title.”
Vargas also had her hands full in a fight she won by unanimous decision over Rony Janik, who stopped her in the fourth round. In the fourth round, Janik’s shot was deflected by a punch in which Vargas knocked her out with a punch to the face and put her into unconsciousness.
She took a few days off to recover, but she will return to action on April 9 when she takes on top contender Anik Leung.
