DescriptionRod Salka ventured back into the ring on Thursday night in Indio, Calif., for a bout against former WBC super featherweight champion Francisco Vargas. “Lightning Rod” had won five straight fights since getting knocked out by Danny Garcia in 2014, so he came in with a full head of steam.

He also was wearing shorts that read “America 1st” and sported a brick-wall pattern in American-flag colors, as if he was trying to send some sort of message to his opponent, who happens to hail from Mexico.

Despite his pro-wall sentiments, Salka’s defense failed him starting in the fifth round.

The seventh round never happened, as his corner stopped the fight.
