Horacio Garcia Batters Carmona in Guadalajara Clash

By Miguel Rivera

After 41 seconds into the second round, Jalisco's Horacio “Violento” Garcia let his powerful fists go and stopped Ricardo Carmona at Arena Jalisco in Guadalajara. Garcia, who continues his unbeaten run, overwhelmed Carmona with hard shots to the head and body before the referee wisely stopped the action. In the first round, Garcia was hit to the neck and knocked off-balance, which made him put a glove on the mat and the ref scored it a knockdown. Garcia was very angry, and went after Carmona seconds later with shots that put him down to his knees. In the second Garcia began to batter Carmona against the ropes and finished him off with a hard combo to force the stoppage.

Garcia's record went up to 19-0, 17KOs, while Carmona fell to 10-4. Garcia returns on the Saul Alvarez-Ryan Rhodes undercard on June 18 in Mexico.

In the co-feature, Moisés Delgadillo and Abraham Gómez battled for eight rounds, with Delgadillo winning a majority decision. It was the third time that Delgadillo and Gomez blows exchanged, but this time there was finally a winner between the two.

For his part, Fernando Castañeda knocked out Rigoberto Casillas in the first round of a welterweight bout..

The charismatic featherweight Moses Flores stopped Carlos Velazquez in the first round with a right to the jaw.

The most electrifying knockout of the night was made by prospect Denis "Hammer" Contreras in the first round of his bout with Uriel Gaona, who was layed out on the canvas. The impact of the punch was so hard that when Gaona finally regained his senses, he approached the referee to ask why the fight was over.

In another good fight, at strawweight, southpaw Cristian de la Cruz won a split decision over Eduardo Cruz.

And the fight which opened the event presented by CANELO PROMOTIONS, the lanky lightweight rookie Carlos "Tornado" Smith returned to devastate his opponent in the very first round, and this time his victim was Antonio "Elegant" Zavala.
