Browning upsets "Baby Face" Garcia!

julio garcia22.06.07 - By Jeff Bastasini: Light middleweight Julio Cesar "Baby Face" Garcia (40-3, 34 KO's) was beaten in a stunning upset tonight, losing by 10-round majority decision to Troy Browning (20-0-1, 8 KO's) at the Mahai Temple in Miami, Florida. Garcia, still only 20-years-old and considered to be one of boxing's best prospects coming into this bout with undefeated Browning, was surprised by the constant pressure and aggression from the 39-year-old Browning, who showed that he wasn't going to roll over for Garcia like many of his previous opponents.

Though undefeated, Browning had never fought anyone near the class level of Garcia, which perhaps would explain Garcia's poor performance tonight as he may have thought he was in for an easy time against his older boxing opponent. The judges' scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 95-95.
