Next fight of Aaron Herrera is not determined yet.
After 13 months of layoff former world champion in two weight classes Jesse Vargas (28-2, 10 KOs) successfully returned to the ring closing his last defeat at the hands of the legendary Manny Pacquiao. In the 10 round battle Vargas got a onesided unanimous decision over Aaron Herrera (33-8-1, 22 KOs) in the main event of the evening at the Pioneer Event Center in Lancaster, California. In the sixth round, Herrera was knocked down. The scores were: three times 100-89.
In an all out war in main event action, Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (34-3-1, 24KO) made his ring return a successful one with a devastating seventh round knockout of the very tough Aaron Herrera (32-7-1, 23KO). While Rios appeared to slightly edge Herrera in the first two rounds, Herrera fought back very strongly in rounds three and four. Round five saw Rios regain control and by round six the body language of Herrera just showed he was being overwhelmed by the constant pressure of former world champ, Rios.
Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios didn't want to be one of those fighters who retired time and again only to be lured back into the ring.
Former world champion Brandon Rios hosted a large contingent of media at Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Van Nuys, California Wednesday as he prepares for his ring return this Sunday, June 11 against Mexico’s Aaron Herrera in the main event of a Special Edition of Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 and FOX Deportes live from The Pioneer Event Center in Lancaster, California.
