Garcia stops Figueroa in two rounds

Danny Garcia continued his run of knockouts Friday, stopping journeyman John Figueroa 52 seconds into the second round of a scheduled eight-round junior welterweight bout Friday in San Diego.

The Philadelphian became only the second fighter to knock out the limited but normally resilient Figeura (7-9-3, 3 knockouts).

Garcia (20-0, 14 KOs) has knocked out four consecutive opponents and seven in his last eight fights.
