In a battle of 2nd tier welterweights, Roberto Garcia (36-3, 23 KOs) survived a 9th round knockdown to defeat Breidis Prescott (27-6, 20 KOs) by a 10 round unanimous decision on Friday night at the UIC Pavilion, in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
The final judges’ scores were 96-93, 95-94 and 96-92. Prescott dropped Garcia in the 9th round with a left-right combination that put a surprised Garcia on his backside.
Garcia pushed the fight all night long in pressuring the constantly Prescott, and looking to KO him with every punch he threw. Due to the continue movement and the nifty ducking and dodging by Prescott, Garcia missed countless punches. He did not look good at all in doing an imitation of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez with all the wild punches he was throwing.
