CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Mikey Garcia stopped defending champion Rocky Martinez 56 seconds into the eighth round Saturday night to take the WBO junior lightweight title. The 25-year-old Garcia, from Oxnard, Calif., floored Martinez with an uppercut, sending the Puerto Rican fighter to the canvas for the first time in his career. "I thought it was a very good punch when I landed it," Garcia said. "I felt I really hurt him, enough to where he wouldnt get up. I had a feeling it would be over after I connected." Garcia improved to 33-0 with his 28th knockout. Martinez dropped to 27-2-2. After falling down with 15 seconds left in the second round, Garcia weathered through five mostly calm rounds at American Bank Center before launching his attack in the sixth. Garcia finished the seventh round by connecting on a right uppercut and, with many in the crowd of 5,124 cheering him, ended it in the eighth. "I felt his power from the very first punch," said the 30-year-old Martinez, whose last bout was a 12-round split decision in April against previously undefeated Diego Magdaleno. "Hes a strong fighter. I knew I was fighting a high quality opponent and I knew when I knocked him down the first time that he wasnt hurt." The two fighters were on the same card Jan. 19 in New York when Garcia won the WBO world featherweight title with an eight-round technical decision over Orlando Salido, and Martinez held on to his junior lightweight belt with a draw against Juan Burgos. Garcia was stripped of his featherweight title in June, when he failed to make weight for a defence against Juan Manuel Lopez. On Friday, Garcia weighed in a quarter-pound under the 130-pound limit. Martinez connected on only 14 per cent of his punches, including 10 per cent of his jabs. Garcia, who came into the fight in the rare position of both challenger and favourite, connected on nearly half of his 127 power punches, which included the 16th knockout punch in his last 18 fights. In the final three rounds, Garcia landed 52 punches to Martinezs eight. The bout was the main event on a nine-match slate. In a rematch of a 2007 fight in Bridgeport, Conn., 37-year-old Vic Darchinyan seemed ready avenge the loss that cost him the IBF flyweight title, but 31-year-old Filipino star Nonito Donaire floored him twice in the eighth round. Donaire improved to 32-2 with his 20th knockout, and Darchinyan fell to 39-6-1 "We were doing great up until that point," Darchinyan said. "I felt I was winning the fight. He caught me with a few shots and thats just the way it goes." Donaire connected on more than half of his power punches. He had surgery on his right shoulder after his most recent fight, a loss by decision to Guillermo Rigondeaux. "Vic hit me hard and it felt like he broke my jaw earlier in the fight and all I was thinking was, Im going to lose," Donaire said. "But I continued fighting and found an opportunity to land a great shot." Demetrius Andrade, from Providence, R.I., won the vacant WBO junior middleweight title, outpointing Armenian-born Vanes Martirosyan in a split decision. Andrade improved to 20-0, and Martirosyan dropped to 33-1-1. "We stuck to our game plan, which was jab, jab, jab," Andrade said. "We werent prepared for the fast knockdown and we had to play a little catch-up after that." In the first featured fight, Jamaicas Nicholas Walters (23-0, 19 KOs) claimed the WBA featherweight title with a fourth-round technical knockout of Mexicos Alberto Garza (25-6-1). LOS ANGELES - The Winnipeg Jets will try to keep their faint playoff hopes alive tonight with a tough road test against the streaking Los Angeles Kings. Fans can listen to the action on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg beginning at 9pm ct/10pm et. Winnipeg picked up only its third victory in 12 games on Thursday with a 4-3 triumph over the San Jose Sharks. That 3-6-3 slump has essentially knocked the Jets out of the playoffs as they trail the Phoenix Coyotes by nine points for the second wild card spot in the Western Conference with eight games to play. Blake Wheeler had a goal and two assists in Thursdays win, while Tobias Enstrom scored the winner with 3:36 to play. Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets and Al Montoya stopped 27 shots in the win. "We just tried to make one more play than they did and it worked out for us," Wheeler said. The Jets have split the first two of a five-game road trip. Ondrej Pavelec will return from a lower-body injury that has held him out since March 14. He has solid career numbers against Los Angeles, going 2-1-0 with a 2.02 GAA and one shutout in three games. The Kings return home red hot and look to capture a sixth victory in a row. The Kings have won 13 of their last 16 games overall, a span that began with an eight-game win streak from Feb. 6-10. Los Angeles then lost three in a row in regulation before claiminng the final two contests of a five-game homestand.dddddddddddd After building that momentum, the Kings hit the road for three in a row and bested a number of contenders in the Eastern Conference as wins over Philadelphia, Washington and Pittsburgh stretched Los Angeles road winning streak to a club record-tying eight straight. The Kings, who set the original mark from Dec. 18, 1974-Jan. 16, 1975, wrapped up the swing with Thursdays 3-2 decision over the Penguins. Alec Martinez and Jeff Carter had goals and Drew Doughty netted the winner early in the third frame. Backup Martin Jones stopped 35-of-37 shots for Los Angeles, which appears locked into third place in the Pacific Division following its successful swing. "Theyre all such good buildings and good teams," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "All three teams are in different places in their standings, so if you can get six points you take it." Los Angeles will play its next three at home and is likely to give No. 1 Jonathan Quick the start tonight. He is 2-2-0 with a 3.48 goals against average lifetime versus the Jets. The Kings split a pair of meetings with the Jets in Winnipeg earlier this season, with L.A. claiming the most recent encounter 3-1 on March 6. The Kings are 5-0-2 all-time at home versus the Jets franchise, which makes its first trip to Los Angeles since relocating from Atlanta.
