SAUCEDO EASILY DISPATCHES OF OVERMATCHED GARCIA
By Scott Shaffer @Ringside
Alex Saucedo TKO2 Johnny Garcia... In the Madison Square Garden co-feature, Oklahoma junior welterweight stopped Michigan's Johnny Garcia in the second round of a mismatch. Saucedo floored Garcia with a hard jab in round one, and the ringside physician took a long hard look at Garcia after the first three minutes of action. Saucedo landed several hard shots in round two and when he violently snapped Garcia's head back, referee Steve Smoger appropriately jumped in to save Garcia. Saucedo improved to 24-0. He is trained by Abel Sanchez, who said Saucedo will be ready for a title fight after two or three more wins. Garcia is 19-5-1 for his career but he is 0-4-1 in his last five fights.
