It’s a Boxing After Dark triple-header Saturday night live from Madison Square Garden In New York City.

In the opening bout Rocky Martinez retained his WBO junior lightweight title with a disputed and highly controversial draw against Juan Carlos Burgos. 

It appeared that Burgos had done enough to win the fight but not on the official cards.

In middleweight action WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin continued his impressive march to the top of the division with a dominant seventh round TKO over a bloody but game Gabriel Rosado.

Golovkin literally shredded Rosado's face, opening several bad cuts and forcing the corner to stop the brutality.

In the main event Mikey Garcia dropped Orlando Salido four times and won the WBO featherweight title by unanimous technical decision after the eight round.

Garcia dominated the action in nearly every round before the fight was stopped due to a broken nose after an accidental Salido headbutt.
