Javier Garcia’s ko comeback
Oxnard boxers score a perfect night!
Lightweight Javier “El Pelos” Garcia’s return to the ring was a successful one last Friday night as the main event on the “Combat United” card at Commerce Casino’s Crowne Plaza.
Wearing the colors of the Mexican flag, the SoCal boxer made his way inside the ropes first. Scheduled for four rounds, Garcia faced Takashi Takenaka, who was making his professional debut in the All Star Promotions event featuring five bouts of live boxing and four bouts of amateur MMA.
Starting quickly, Garcia came out pounding after an almost three-year hiatus. After a fast and furious first round, the fierce Mexican slugger kept up the pace over the overmatched but game Japanese fighter. After landing some big shots and powerful combinations, referee Jack Reiss stepped in, waving off the match at 1:59 in the second frame giving Garcia his fourth professional victory and fourth KO as the audience chanted “Pelos! Pelos! PELOS!”
