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).

The announcement was made at the world mens curling championship at Capital Indoor Stadium in China.Rafael Benitez must be allowed to be the decision-maker at Newcastle if they are to survive in the Premier League, according to the Sunday Supplement panel. The former Liverpool and Real Madrid boss was finally announced as Steve McClarens replacement in the St James Park hotseat on Friday, and is tasked with steering the Magpies clear of the relegation zone.Much of the criticism that has been levelled at Newcastle in recent years is the amount of boardroom interference from managing director Lee Charnley and owner Mike Ashley, and the Daily Stars chief sports writer Jeremy Cross believes attitudes have to change. Rafael Benitez has to make decisions, says Cross What Charnley has to do if he is going to be successful is to let Benitez manage his way, Cross saidI am sure Benitez has sat down and demanded certain things, but demands and what you get at Newcastle are totally different things.Let him get on with it, and not interfere. Keith Downie gets reaction from fans as Benitez takes over at Newcastle Despite an obvious liking for the Premier League, Benitezs decision to get involved in a relegation battle came as something of a surprise, and the Mail on Sundays chief football writer Rob Draper believes the Magpies have got a manager of real quality.ddddddddddddBenitez is the best calibre of manager since they had (Sir Bobby) Robson, youd say, Draper said. Alan Pardew did a very good job there, but he didnt have the record coming into the job Rafa has.They are in such a desperate situation, Benitez has been able to get what he wants. He can say that he wants money to spend if they stay up, that he wants to be the manager, he wants to have a big say in transfers. They could have got him when Pardew left, and Benitez was at Napoli, but they werent in the position to offer him these things.Now, they are desperate to stay in the Premier League, and they have given him those things.Benitezs relationship with Mike Ashley is the fascinating one. This will decide if this is long term or something that ends quickly. Also See: Benitez thinking long-term Rafa calls for unity Five challenges Rafas ups and downs ' ' '
