NEW YORK (AP) Police say a promising New York City boxer is dead after being shot during a fight in the Bronx.
Ronney Vargas was gunned down about 3:30 a.m. Saturday after the dispute with a group of men who fled the scene in a white car.
Police say the 20-year-old Vargas was shot once in the torso. The three-time Golden Gloves champion was pronounced dead at the hospital.
No arrests have been made.
The junior middleweight turned professional last year and was 8-0. He lived in the Bronx with his family.
