Coliseo Roberto Clemente, San Juan, Puerto Rico - Mikey Garcia (28-0, 24KOs) stopped Bernabe Concepcion (29-6-1, 15KOs) in the seventh round to retain the NABO featherweight title.

A clash of styles in the first three rounds. Concepcion, usually an aggressive fighter, switched things up and started pure boxing match with Garcia. In the fourth, Concepcion was staying defense to avoid the big shots of an incoming Garcia, and tried to reply with counters. Garcia was using a heavy jab and trying to break the strong guard of Concepcion. By the sixth, Garcia started picking up the pace with punches to the body and head.

In the seventh, a two-punch combinbation sent Concepcion down for count. Garcia was stalking in a calm manner by working the head and body of Concepcion against the ropes to force the stoppage at 2:27.

I agree that Mikey should start fighting tougher guys; he can start that by fighting Lorenzo "thunderbolt" Villanueva (22-0, 21 KO's). This guy's power punch is reminiscent with that of late Edwin Valero, any of the current top featherweights hell.

[QUOTE=Boxingtech718v2]I guess I'm the only one that wasn't really impressed by Garcia. He beat the tar out of a shop worn smaller opponent. It was a total mismatch and I felt like Bernabe shouldn't have even been in the ring tonight. Garcia has to show me more than this.[/QUOTE] yeah i w...

Good win for Mikey. He was boxing him well he didn't rush the time was there for the knockout he waited for Bernabe to get tired on his defense. Then landed those big right crosses which ended the fight. I think Mikey needs to go to the body a lot more and has to land that left hook to the jaw or...

Garcia has all the tools -- tangibles and intangibles -- needs to start fighting top-tier guys now....
