Ronnie Vargas Tribute Car [pic]


Special thanks to my friend and @methodshop reader Ilena Ayala for doing some research and finding out what this car is really all about. It looks like it is a memorial for the popular New York-based junior middleweight Ronnie Vargas (8-0, 6 KO’s). He was shot dead early Saturday morning, August 16, a short distance from his home in the South Bronx. Click here for more details. Rest in peace Ronnie.
