Fernando Vargas’s Son Amado Vargas turns pro this Friday

Amado “El Malvado” Fernando Vargas is the second son of the legendry three time junior middleweight world champion Fernando Vargas Sr who will make his professional boxing debut this Friday the 29th January.

Amado from Las Vegas, Nevada will face Martin Sanchez (2-4-1) in Hermosillo, Mexico.

The fight will be a four round featherweight bout and is to be featured on the BXSTRS Productions card and it will be broadcasted on ESPN Knockout behind closed doors due to the pandemic.

Amado is the second son of Fernando Vargas Sr to turn professional with Fernando Vargas Jr making his debut last month.

Amado has an amateur record of 42-7 and the 20 year old is excited to fight in the professional ranks. He will be trained by his father out of his Las Vegas based gym, the Fernando Vargas Fighting Foundation.

When younger Amado use to play football but took up boxing in his mid-teens and was ranked as high as #5 in the 114-pound weight class by Team USA.

In an interview, Amado said “I feel great, definitely excited to display my talents on ESPN Knockout. It’s an honor to continue the legacy that my father has left. Now it’s my turn to show the world that these Vargas boys can really fight.”

Fernando Vargas Sr said “I’m thrilled to have Amado follow the footsteps of Fernando Jr. in turning professional. Like his other two brothers, Amado takes boxing very seriously and has dreams of becoming a world champion but he understands the work and discipline that is involved.”

Fernando Vargas’s third son, 16 year old Emiliano is an accomplished amateur boxer.

I’m looking forward to seeing the next generation of the Vargas family coming through.
