Just as the referee’s count reached 10, Duarte managed to regain his footing, but it was too late, granting Garcia the knockout wins with only nine seconds remaining in Round 8.

“I just had to slow his momentum down,” said Garcia, 25. “He was building momentum, momentum and I was like, ‘Man, I gotta cut this off somehow.’ … He was a strong fighter. He took a good punch. … I hit him with some hard shots and he just kept coming.

“It was tough. It was very tough. … I have the killer instinct. Sometimes when I hurt somebody that bad, I just be cracking them.”

Duarte, despite taking the big knockdown punch, said he was upset by the ref’s 10-count.

“I feel like it was unfair because I still got up,” Duarte said in remarks translated from Spanish. “I still felt like I could keep going.”

Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) was ahead 68-65, 69-64 and 68-65 on the judges’ scorecards at the time of stoppage. He lost Rounds 5 and 6 on two of three scorecards, and it was Duarte (26-2-1, 21 KOs) who was coming on strong when Garcia clipped him in Round 8.
