Fresno, California - Sandor Martin (39-2, 13 KOs) pulled off what may become the biggest upset of the year, when he boxed his way to a ten round majority decision over four division world champion Mikey Garcia (40-2, 30 KOs)

The scores were 95-95, 97-93 and 97-93 for Martin.

Garcia was coming off a 20-month layoff, with his last ring appearance taking place in February 2020 with a decision win over Jessie Vargas.

Martin, 28-years-old, entered the fight as a tremendous underdog. 

He was able to use movement, defense and accurate counter-punching to give Garcia problems for the entire ten rounds.

Garcia, who suffered the second defeat of his career, felt that he did enough to win. 

"He was the one running around a lot. I thought I was winning the fight in a close matchup. I thought I did enough to win the rounds. I was the aggressor looking to make the fight. There's no excuses, that's the way it is," Garcia said.

Garcia's first defeat came in 2019, when he moved up to welterweight and was dominated over twelve round by world champion Errol Spence.

Rather than move down, Garcia remained in the welterweight division.

Martin, who took the fight at a catch-weight of 145-pounds, felt the 33-year-old Garcia would be to small to deal with him at that weight. 

"He's a legend, it was a pleasure to share the ring with him," said Martin. "It's the best moment of my career. I always said I was going to do it and I did it.

"I know myself; I know my capability. He's a complete boxer but he's not a natural 147-pounder."

Whether or not a rematch will happen is unknown, but Garcia is open to the possibility.
