Ontario, California - In a battle of undefeated middleweights, 19-year-old Elijah Garcia (14-0, 12 KOs) lived up to the hype as he stopped Amilcar Vidal (16-1, 12 KOs) in the fourth round. (photos by Esther Lin)
After a feeling out first, which Vidal had the edge, Garcia was landing accurate shots in the second. Vidal was very busy and was also connecting with blows to the head and body, as he bloodied up the nose of Garcia.
It was an action third. Both were landing with heavy blows in close. During the fourth, Garcia badly hurt Vidal with a solid counter and then unloaded with a variety of big punches to send Vidal crumbling to the mat as the fight was waved off.
