Mexican boxer Francisco Vargas crushed the border wall on Thursday night.

His opponent, U.S. boxer Rod Salka, donned shorts  reading "America 1st" that were embellished with a brick wall design, a clear reference to President Trump's desire to construct a formidable border wall between the U.S and Mexico, and have the latter nation pay for it.

Vargas proceeded to dominate Salka, hitting the American with an uppercut in the fifth round that sent Salka wobbling. The next round, Vargas' blows left Salka with a nasty cut under his left eye. After assessing their battered boxer, Salka's trainers decided to throw in the towel before the seventh round could begin.

Following the fight, Salka's face was covered in bruises and cuts. Vargas incurred some minor swelling, but appeared mostly unblemished.

According to Salka's Wikipedia page, which includes his complete professional boxing history, his nickname now reads "The Racist."

Salka had previously been battered by U.S. boxer  Danny Óscar García in 2014, who was born in Puerto Rico. Garcia knocked him to canvas in the second round

Trump's actual wall remains in limbo. The president has requested $18 billion to extend the wall over the next decade. Some of the wall prototypes reach about 30 feet in height. As of yet, Congress has not approved this long-term funding for the wall.
