Sandor Martin arrived this Saturday in the United States for the fans of the big boxing markets, but now everyone knows his name thanks to his great victory over Mikey Garcia at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California.
The Spanish fighter won a majority decision with scorecards of 95-95, 97-93 and 97-93, surprising the boxing community and scoring a great victory over a boxing star like Garcia.
The fight was the main event of the Matchroom Boxing show and was scheduled at 145 lbs. at a catchweight, very close to Welterweight. Although Martin is a super lightweight, he did not hesitate to make the sacrifice of moving up to make this important fight.
The Barcelona fighter’s strategy was great and he used his best moves on the ring to keep Garcia at bay, working his waist movements well to avoid his attacks, while counterattacking with strong punches that were diminishing the condition of the American of Mexican descent.
Little by little he was adding rounds, but the most important thing is the impression he was leaving. His boxing looked good and his dominance was clear. It was a great opportunity that the 28-year-old boxer did not waste.
Sandor left evidence of the great work that has been done in Spanish boxing in recent years, he also showed that around the world there is talent waiting for his chance in the big cards. He now has 39 wins, 2 losses and 13 knockouts, while Mikey lost only his second professional fight, he has 40 wins and 30 knockouts.
