Things almost got off to a disastrous start for the Garcia household. With his older brother Ryan Garcia in the main event, younger brother Sean Garcia (7-0, 2 KOs) kicked things off at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
In what was a four round opening event, the lightweight prospect was in complete control through the first two rounds. For his opponent however in Rene Marquez (5-6, 2 KOs), he turned up the pressure during the final two rounds.
His added aggression was just enough to sway one judge to score the bout even at 38-38. The final two judges on the other hand, handed the younger Garcia a close win with identical scores of 39-37.
