Garcia, Alvarado destroy foes

Top Rank

Unbeaten featherweight Miguel Angel “Mikey” Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) showed why he’s so highly regarded, needing just 67 seconds to annihilate veteran Tomas “El Norteno” Villa (22-7-4, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Garcia, the brother of former world champion Robert Garcia, dropped Villa twice before the bout was waved off by referee Laurence Cole. He claimed the vacant USBA featherweight championship.
