Richmond boxer Luis “Vicious” Garcia followed up his first-round knockout victory at Richmond Memorial Auditorium in April by delivering another KO in Tijuana, Mexico on Saturday.

His latest fight took a little longer, as he knocked out Luis “Fresa” Valdez (0-2) of Tijuana in the second round, according to results posted by FightNews.com.

After coming out slow in the first round, Garcia swung a left hook to the body in the ensuing round that dropped Valdez in the welterweight match, the publication reported.

On April 25, Garcia debuted at the nearly sold out “A Night of Glory 2” at Richmond Memorial Auditorium. There, he defeated Daniel Morales (see the video below for highlights from the fight and an interview with Garcia).

Again in that fight, a body shot was involved. He reportedly started out jittery and hyper-aggressive and got into wild exchanges before catching Morales with a left hook that matted him. Later, Garcia pounded Morales with a debilitating body shot and the fight was called moments later.

Garcia may very well fight in front of his hometown again. Mike Bazan, the promoter for “A Night of Glory 2,” which was a charity event benefiting multiple sclerosis, told us he hopes to hold more fights at Richmond Memorial Auditorium.
