Miguel Angel Garcia stopped Juan Carlos Martinez in four rounds of a featherweight bout. In his most impressive performance to date, Garcia dropped the usually durable Martinez in the third and twice in the fourth. Garcia’s professional resume moved to 27-0 (23). Martinez dropped to a very deceptive 19-13-1 (7).
With the victory Garcia jumped from eighth to sixth among SecondsOut’s elite featherweights. Elio Rojas is bumped down to seventh and Daniel Ponce De Leon is dropped to eighth. Although still young and inexperienced, Garcia is beginning to look like the biggest threat to Yuriorkis Gamboa at 126.
