Holland Michigan’s own Juan “Johnny” Garcia scored a second round TKO in the main event of promoter Greg Ahrens card at the Civic Center on Friday night. With most of the approximately 1,200 folks in attendance cheering him on, former amatuer star Garcia did not disappoint but had to overcome some stiff resistance from opponent Jesse Francisco. After controlling the first half of the opening round, Garcia took several hard overhand rights from Francisco that had him holding on for a moment. Recovering quickly however, Garcia engaged Francisco in a spirited exchange to the bell that had the crowd roaring. It turned into a route though in the second as Garcia cut loose with his entire arsenal flooring Francisco three times to score the stoppage at 2:31. Garcia improves to (6-0, 5 KOs) while game Francisco from Miami drops to (3-13, 2 KOs). Lightweights. For more details and photos click here…

Guadalajara featherweight Jorge Solis tipped the scale at 133.2 in his second day re-weigh for his challenge at the IBF Featherweight Championship against Yuriorkis Gamboa at The Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Gamboa did not participate in the mandatory re-weigh and will, in the event he wins tonight’s bout, give up the IBF title which would become vacant.
The WBA doesn’t require a re-weighing, so Gamboa would retain his WBA belt with a win tonight.
Also re-weighing were Jorge Solis Teon Kennedy 129.4 and Jorge Diaz 131 who meet in a twelve-rounder for the USBA super bantamweight (122lb) title.
