On October 28, The Paramount in Huntington prepares to host an explosive bout featuring Long Island’s rising star, ALEX “EL TORO” VARGAS (13-0 5KO’s, Bellport, NY). Standing opposite him will be the formidable MATT “SWEET CHILD” CONWAY (23-3 9KO’s) of Pittsburgh, PA.

Hailing from Bellport, NY, Vargas is not only a boxing sensation but also a respected Suffolk County Police Officer. He is known for his swift punches and nimble footwork. Under the astute guidance of Star Boxing, Vargas has been groomed to follow in the footsteps of Paramount alumni like Chris Algieri and Joe Smith, Jr. Both fighters transitioned from Paramount regulars to world champions. Now, Vargas readies himself for his debut 10-round fight, backed by an unbeaten streak and a fighting style that marries precision with power.

An enthusiastic Vargas exclaimed, “It’s a thrilling moment for me, heading into my first ten-round bout. I’m raring to go and extend my winning streak to 14-0 before a roaring crowd at The Paramount on October 28!”

However, Vargas’ path to victory won’t be without challenges. Matt Conway, bred on the tough streets of Pittsburgh, stands in his way. Having built a reputation in Pittsburgh and across the US, Conway’s resilience was evident in Las Vegas against the then-undefeated Gabriel Flores. Making his New York debut, Conway is no doubt Vargas’ most seasoned adversary yet.

Conway shared his optimism, stating, “I feel fantastic about this bout. I’ve rigorously prepped for this, and I know Alex has been doing the same. It’s going to be a treat for the fans!”

The Paramount, renowned as the top Pollstar club venue globally, has been a witness to countless memorable “Rockin’ Fights” matches. The forthcoming clash between Vargas and Conway on October 28 is sure to add to its storied history. It’s not just a fight; it’s a battle for supremacy and global acknowledgment.

Star Boxing’s CEO and Hall of Fame Promoter, JOE DEGUARDIA, expressed his anticipation, saying, “This fight encapsulates what makes the Rockin’ Fights series truly outstanding. Vargas, who debuted professionally at the Paramount in 2018, is on the verge of marking his name in boxing’s elite. Yet, Conway, the ‘steel curtain’ from Pittsburgh, is equally determined. Both fighters bring heart, prowess, and zeal to the ring. It’s going to be a showdown to remember, and I personally can’t wait!”
