WBO #10 bantamweight Marvin “Good Boy” Mabait (19-1-2, 13 KOs) needed just 26 seconds to put away Johnny “Laberinto” Garcia (18-5-1, 9 KOs) in a clash scheduled for twelve rounds on Friday night at the popular Salon Jose Cuervo in Mexico City. A grazing left/right combination by the Filipino laid out Garcia for the count as Mabait claimed the vacant WBO Intercontinental belt. Garcia apparently suffered a problem with his left eye. Mabait could be in line to face WBO Champion Tomoki Kameda in December.
