Garcia Scores 1st Round Injury TKO Over Lumacad

By Jake Donovan

Horacio Garcia remained unbeaten, stopping Fernando Lumacad in one round Saturday evening in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The stoppage came under strange circumstances; the knockout blow was in fact a right hand on Lumacad's left wrist, leaving the journeyman in pain as he dropped to the canvas and took the full ten count.

Garcia opened up strong but was never really afforded the opportunity to showcase his best stuff. Just as action began to heat up, a right hand intended for Lumacad's chin was instead picked off by his glove and wrist, leaving him in severe pain.

The action continued long enough for Garcia to attempt three more power shots, all of which were blocked by Lumacad's glove. However, the stinging pain was enough to force him to the canvas, where he remained as the referee disallowed the 27-year old Filipino from continuing.

Garcia improves (sort of) to 25-0 (17KO) with the win, already his second of 2014. The local super bantamweight scored a 2nd round knockout earlier in the month, also in his hometown of Guadalajara.

A two-fight win streak comes to a close for Lumacad, who falls to 29-7-3 (12KO).

In the televised co-feature, Yasmin Rivas scored a 10-round decision over Calixta Silgado (11-3-2, 8KO). The flyweight title fight was as predictable on paper as it was in reality, with Rivas (29-8, 9KO) winning every round - 100-90 - on all three scorecards.

Both bouts aired live on Fox Deportes in the United States and on Televisa in Mexico.
