Boxer wearing 'America 1st' trunks with wall pattern defeated by Mexican fighter

But then again, Vargas said it all by knocking over the man representing Trump's wall.

The shorts, which were were a play on President Trump's idea of building a wall between Mexico and the United States, apparently only added fuel to Vargas' fire.

Salka's trainers threw in the towel after that, according to Newsweek.

According to BoxingScene, Salka went down in the fifth round and stayed down for an eight-count of eight as the bell sounded to end the round.

Rod Salka, a 35-year-old super-featherweight, chose to make boxing great again in his match last night in California against Mexican boxer Francisco Vargas.

Instead, Salka caught a whooping from Vargas and suffered a TKO loss in the sixth round.

After the fight, Vargas wasn't asked on TV about Salka's trunks, so we don't know exactly how he felt about his opponent's political statement.

Vargas (25-1-1, 18 KOs) came into the fight looking to rebound after losing to Miguel Berchelt in January 2017 and was sidelined for much of the year after getting scar tissue removed from above both of his eyes.

Rod Salka got humbled in a very public way on Thursday night.

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.
