    Vargas turned professional in 2004. He sustained his first defeat by a ranked opponent, Kevin Johnson (boxer), in a May 15, 2009 bout. It became clear early in the fight that Vargas was in over his head, being dropped in the 3rd—giving Johnson a massive lead—and again in the 5th round. Bloody and bruised during the latter, Vargas looked like a beaten man, and it was evident that the end was near. The end came with a flurry of combinations unleashed by Johnson early in the 6th round, thus scoring Johnson a TKO; had the fight beem left to continue, it would have resulted in knock out. Mercy came when Vargas's corner saw the writing on the wall and, with a toss of a white towel, ended this mismatch, sparing Vargas further injury.
