  • - Garcia was immediately back in the fight, pressing the action as he walked Stevenson down through most of the fight.

Roberto Garcia and James Stevenson

Roberto Garcia defeated James Stevenson by unanimous decision over eight rounds

James Stevenson took the fight against Roberto Garcia just two weeks before the April 24 showdown at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion. It showed.

Stevenson came out aggressive in the first and landed a vicious uppercut to put Garcia on the mat less than a minute into the round, but the flash knockdown didn’t faze Garcia as he battled back to take clean control of the fight.

The aggressor throughout, Garcia ground down Stevenson until the latter kept a wide berth in the eighth and final round rather than try to battle his way back into the contest.

In the end, Garcia came out ahead on all three cards, 77-74, 78-73 and 78-73.
