— An American boxer wearing boxing trunks that depicted a border wall was beaten by his Mexican opponent Thursday night.
Rod Salka faced Francisco Vargas in Indio, California, KABC reported.
Salka's shorts had a brick-wall pattern in American flag colors, with the slogan “America 1st” emblazoned his waistband.
That didn’t matter to Vargas, who defeated Salka by TKO, sending Salka and the wall crumbling to the mat in the sixth round.
