In his last outing, which took place on April 3rd in Corpus Christi, TX, the twenty-two year-old Garcia needed only 67 seconds against Tomas “El Norteño” Villa (22-7-4, 14 KOs). Garcia dropped Villa twice which prompted the referee to call a halt to the action in the first round.
Latin Fury 14 will be shown live on Pay-Per-View and is being promoted by Top Rank, in association with Zanfer Promotions and Tecate.
