Mikey Garcia Knocks Juanma Out in The Fourth Round
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas - Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27KOs) stopped former two division world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (33-3, 30KOs) in the fourth round. Garcia's jab was touching Juanma in the first. Lopez was able to land a few good lefts. In the second, Garcia started landing his own left hand. But then out of nowhere a counter right hand sent Juanma down on his seat. Juanma made it up and survived the round. Garcia started landing his hands go in the third and tagging Juanma with hard punches.
Juanma started making it a war in the fourth, but Garcia landed a big combination that sent the Puerto Rican star down on his back and he barely made it up. Juanma was out on his feet and the referee stopped the fight.
Garcia lost the WBO featherweight title on the scale on Friday, when he weighed two-pounds over the division limit of 126-pounds.
I always wondered why Juanma never went back to the basics and learned to box the right way. He just kept doing the same expecting a different result!Comment by panicchaser on 06-19-2013
