Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia equaled the strength record of the San Marcos Fair today. Garcia took four swings at the Tecate Test Your Strength Game, swinging a sledge hammer in front of hundreds of fans. After registering scores of 96, 97 and 99, “The Amazing” Garcia wound up for the record breaker, scoring the year’s first-ever 100. What followed was even more incredible. The game literally had a seizure — shimmying and shaking before the screen went black. “The game gave the fair goers a preview of what my man Roberto Garcia will be doing to Antonio Margarito on Saturday,” stated Eric Brown, who trains Garcia with Freddie Roach.

Margarito attempted to match Garcia’s feat, but even with a security detail, he could not make it through the throng of fans still swarming Garcia.
