Review: 2000-06-03, Roberto Garcia (32-1-0) had just lost the IBF super featherweight title in his previous fight against Diego Corrales thus he moved up in weight class to the light welterweight division facing Ben Tackie (19-1-0). Roberto Garcia was commanding the fight but in the ninth round Tackie knocked down him, Garcia survived, but in the tenth Ben Tackie knocked him out with a tremendous left hook (Ring Magazine “Knockout of the Year” ).
