New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Mikey Garcia remained unbeaten and kept his WBO super featherweight title with a 12-round unanimous decision over Juan Carlos Burgos Saturday night at the Madison Square Garden Theater.

Garcia won by scores of 118-110 on two scorecards and 119-109 from the other judge.

Garcia (34-0, 28 KOs) used a solid right hand to stun Burgos (30-2-2, 20 KOs) in the third round and coasted to the win by landing 74 more punches than his opponent. It was Garcia's first title defense of the belt he captured in November over Roman Martinez.
