American Boxer Wearing 'America 1st' Shorts Gets Knocked Out By Mexican

Although, you'd have to imagine that Salka had every right to be confident - he had won his five previous fights before the Vargas bout and must have harboured a genuine belief that he could beat him. Salka seemed to be paying tribute to Donald Trump's idea that building a wall on the Mexican border would make America great again.

After several rounds of punishment Salka's corner made a decision to throw the towel in between rounds and Salka was out on his chair.

Vargas, who improved to 25-1-2, now hopes to fight for a title following his dominating performance.


Salka (24-5, 4 KOs) had won five in a row since being knocked out by Danny Garcia in a grotesque mismatch in August 2014.

Rod Salka got humbled in a very public way on Thursday night. In the sixth, Vargas tore into the Trump supporter with a bevy of power shots and forced Salka's corner to wave the white flag at the end of the round.

The 35-year-old boxer previously ran as a Republican for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2016, but he lost to Democrat William Kortz by 30 percentage points, according to The Washington Post.
