Photos: Garcia Unseats Salido, Golovkin Batters Rosado

By Joel Colon

The Theater, Madison Square Garden, New York - Mikey Garcia (31-0, 26 KOs) captured the WBO featherweight crown by unseating Orlando “Siri” Salido (39-12-2, 27 KOs) with an eight round technical decision. Salido went down four time in the fight. The match was stopped in the eight round after Garcia's nose was broken from a Salido headbutt. The scores were 79-70, 79-69, 79-69 for Garcia.

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (25-0, 22 KOs) beat down Gabriel Rosado (21-6, 13 KOs) for a seventh round TKO victory. Rosado was cut over the left eye, his nose was bleeding bad and there was blood flowing from his mouth. The circumstances made for a very bloody match before the fight was stopped when Rosado's corner threw in the towel.
