Miguel Espino defeats Alex “Terra” Garcia in the 6th Round and retains WBC CABOFE Title


WBC CABOFE Middleweight Boxing Champion and former Contender alum Miguel Espino (20 wins, 9 by weigh of knock out and only 2 losses) continued his victorious  ways by stopping former light middleweight champion Alex “Terra” Garcia. In an impressive fashion Saturday Night March 23, 2009  in Beverly Hills, California at the Playboy Mansion. 

 It was a celebrity packed crowd with TV sets from all over the nation, Espino and Garcia traded shots for the first three rounds. Then Miguel Espino dropped Garcia twice at the end of rounds’ four and five.  After the sixth round, Garcia failed to come out for the seventh round which then led to a knock out for Espino while continuing to retain his World Boxing Council CABOFE Title.

Long-time trainer John Bray had nothing but positive things to say about Miguel; “After a long year off, Miguel looked good and did what he had to do to continue his dream of being the Middleweight champion of the world.  There is always room for improvement, but I was proud of the way he fought after taking a couple of hard shots from Garcia.  It was a good fight and I’m looking forward to keeping him busy. “ Bray also added that: “Although Miguel was off for a year, it wasn’t because he wanted to be.  He was set to fight three notable fighters but for some reason, negotiations failed weeks prior to each fight.  I would have loved to keep him active but it just didn’t work out until this fight.”

WBC CABOFE Middleweight Champion Miguel Espino stated that: “After a year off, I felt rusty in the ring but I’m glad that I kept active in the gym the whole year and it paid off.  Three fights failed to happen last year, I stayed busy at the gym (Fortune Gym) and just kept working hard, and like I said, it paid off.  I was always in the gym preparing myself for a fight, even ready to take one on short notice.
 I take my hat off to Garcia, he fought a good fight and now I’m just ready to take it to the next level in preparation for a world title shot.”
