Fernando Javier Vargas is a retired American boxer of Mexican descent and two-time world champion, who won a bronze medal as an amateur at the 1995 Pan American Games in Mar del Plata. His nicknames include "Ferocious", "The Aztec Warrior" and "El Feroz". Vargas was the youngest fighter to become world light middleweight champion at 21 years old in the history of boxing. Some of Fernando's notable wins include victories over former world champions Raul Marquez, Yori Boy Campas, Ike Quartey, and over Winky Wright. His losses to Oscar De La Hoya, Felix Trinidad, Shane Mosley, and Ricardo Mayorga remain his only career defeats and he is a favorite of American cable TV giant HBO. He's also known for having problems with alcohol which have been thought to have affected his career at times. Fernando is very good friends with Julio Cesar Chavez; Chavez has been part of Vargas' ring entourage in at least two fights. Chavez was also present when Vargas proposed to his wife Martha Lopez Vargas.
