Fighting as a super featherweight, Vargas began his pro career in 2010 and is a solid fighter. He represented Mexico in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, fighting as a lightweight.

Vargas can be a dangerous fighter if allowed to fight inside, his body shots and speed are deadly when placed with extreme precision. He has a knack finding openings and is always moving forward, he can do damage if his upper-cut finds openings.

In his last fight against against an unbeaten Brandon Bennett, Vargas dominated Bennett with speed and power. The win gave Vargas the NABF super featherweight title and the WBO Inter-Continental super featherweight title.

With most of his fights taking place in Mexico, Vargas began fighting in the United States in 2012 for the most part. Quickly catching the eye of boxing fans, Vargas has quickly become a fan favorite with his non-stop action.
