Rod Salka is going to be an internet sensation this week thanks to his loss to Mexican fighter Francisco Vargas. Salka wore custom manufactured fight shorts that said “America 1st” with a very Donald Trump inspired brick wall pattern on the shorts.
Vargas put in work against Salka punishing him with hard shots to the body and head, eventually getting Salka to sit down after the 6th round instead of going out in competition. Salka who is from Pennsylvania dropped to 24-5 overall, and just became the most popular boxer on the internet this week.
As a note: F4 studios who was featured on the cornerman jackets did not make those shorts. F4 studios is a long sponsor of Cris Cyborg and does not tolerate racial targeting, they released this official statement on Instagram
