    Mikey Garcia, Nonito Donaire and Demetrius Andrade Win in TX


    Mikey Garcia (L; in Chris Farina-Top Rank photo)knocked out two-time WBO junior lightweight champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez in the 8th round, Saturday, November 9 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. The 33-0 Garcia, who snagged the Puerto Rican's WBO 130 pound crown, edged up higher on most pound for pound lists with a methodical, disciplined showing. Rocky slips to 27-2-2. Garcia had to rebound from being knocked down in round two.
    Nonito Donaire (32-2) beat a darting, pot-shotting, fired up Vic Darchinyan (39-6-1) in a rematch of a 2007 contest, via TKO, in round nine. Donaire wasn't having an easy time of it, and that is an understatement, but righted the ship late.
    Demetrius Andrade went down in round one, but surged back to win a SD12 over Vanes Martirosyan, who slipped to 33-1-1. "BooBoo" is the WBO junior middle champ, with a 20-0 record.

    "Boo Boo" sums up the way I felt toward two of the three judges' cards in the Andrade/Martirosyan bout. Takes its place as the latest installment in the 2013 Boxing Judging Hall of Shame, joining such recent exhibits as Chavez Jr/Vera, Mayweather/Alvarez, and Burns/Beltran.
