Bio

Hector Luis Garcia Bio

Undefeated super featherweight contender Hector Garcia is making his native Dominican Republic proud as he moves closer to world title glory in the 130-pound division.

Boxing and brotherly love

Hector Garcia grew up in a house with six brothers, five sisters. 

“My parents, Jose and Gloria, instilled humility and good values,” Garcia said. “Every day was motivation to get ahead since we had few resources.”

One of Garcia’s older brothers, Darlyn, took him to a boxing gym when he was 14.

Garcia’s professional debut was a third-round knockout of Marlembron Acuna in December 2016, after which he went 4-0 in 2017. “The Android” stopped all five opponents in 2018.

The year 2019 brought a pair of big victories over Ronal Ron (April) and Anvar Yunusov (July). A steady southpaw, Garcia considers himself a combination of former champions Oscar De La Hoya and Argenis Mendez, the latter of whom is a Dominican countryman. 

“Anvar Yunusov was a great, important victory. He was a very experienced boxer and not an easy fight,” Garcia said. “I define myself as a boxer with Oscar’s style and Argenis’ skills. I recognize I’m a left-hander who trusts my fists.”

“I began my career as a boxer under the guidance of coach Marino Minaya,“ Garcia said. “Darlyn was a great motivational boost for my boxing practices.”

Over the course of more than 100 amateur bouts, Garcia earned gold medals in the 2013 Bolivarian Games in Peru, the 2014 Pan American Festival Games in Mexico City and the 2014 Central American Games in Veracruz, Mexico.

Garcia earned a silver medal in the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada, was Boxer Of The Year in a 2015 Elite Boxing Gala, and represented The Dominican Republic in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

“I received the nickname, ‘The Android,’ while I was on the National Team,” Garcia said. “My teammates gave it to me for being strong and intelligent.”

Colbert vs. Garcia: February 26, 2022 (PBC on SHOWTIME)

Rising to the occasion

Garcia won twice more in 2021 by one-knockdown, fourth-round TKO of Miguel Moreno Gonzalez (July) and eighth-round unanimous decision over Mexican southpaw Isaac Avelar (December). This set up a showdown versus unbeaten sensation Chris Colbert on February 26, 2022.  

Fighting as a late replacement on 19-days notice, Garcia battered Colbert, scoring a seventh-round knockdown during a near shutout (118-109 twice, 119-108) unanimous decision victory in a super featherweight world title eliminator at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. 

“When I was told three weeks ago that I was going to take this fight, I thought my life was going to change. I needed to come in my best shape and I want to give a lot of credit to (trainer Ismael Salas), who gave me the confidence to say, ‘You can win this fight,’” said Garcia.

“I told them not to go to sleep, because I have power in both of my arms. That was the key. I came back with that power shot and knocked him down. In the ninth or 10th round, I don’t remember, but I hit him so hard with a body shot and after that I knew I had him, he wasn’t going to be a boxer anymore.”
