Mikey Garcia Knocks Martinez Out To Win WBO Crown

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.

The first round was close, but Martinez opened things up in the second when he dropped Garcia with a good counter. Garcia's boxing took over after that, with a huge sixth round where he cracked Martinez with several shots that shook the Puerto Rican fighter up. Garcia dominated the seventh and then landed a huge body shot in the eight to put Martinez down for the count.
