The opponents change but the outcome remains the same for Alex Vargas.
His fight against 35-year-old Benjamin Borteye (4-5) lasted two rounds before the Maryland resident’s corner threw in the towel.
Leading up to the technical knockout, the Long Islander used a barrage of punches to knock down the Ghana native twice in the first two rounds.
“I’m excited I got the stoppage,” Vargas told GreaterPatchogue following the fight. “I’ve been waiting for that since my first fight.”
After the fight, the 23-year-old looked into the crowd where he saw a sea of red in the stands— an entire section of the audience sporting Alex “El Toro” Vargas t-shirts.
“It is an amazing feeling to know that you have that support,” said Vargas. “It gives me that excitement to put on a show.”
