Photos: Mikey Garcia Wins More Gold With Martinez KO
American Bank Center, Corpus Christi, Texas - Mikey Garcia (33-0, 28KOs) made a statement in his new division, as he moves up to knock Roman "Rocky" Martinez (27-2-2, 16KOs) out in the eight round to capture the WBO super featherweight championship. Garcia becomes a two-division champion with the victory. Garcia was dropped in the second round, but then he dominated the action and then landed a huge body shot in the eight to put Martinez down for the count.
Mikey looked very good last night, but that should have been expected against Rocky, who already should have lost his title to Burgos. He's very fundamentally sound though and throws crisp counters. He's got skills.Comment by ddangerous on 11-10-2013
