When I started up my new series Lost Files, I knew I would be digging through some throwback photos and going down memory lane a bit.

Photos have a way of bringing back memories in an instant, and such is the case when I look at pictures I shot of Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia inside of Barry’s Boxing in Las Vegas in July of 2014. Garcia was preparing for a fight with hard-punching Colombian Breidis Prescott, a bout that he ended up winning by way of unanimous decision.

Exclusive photos from the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Tex. as junior middleweight veteran contender Roberto ‘Amenaza’ Garcia wins a six-round unanimous decision over Larry Smith.


With the victory, Garcia improves his record to 33-3 with 22 knockouts, with hopes of a return date sometime in January.


Garcia is known in some boxing circles for having sparred with a bevy of world class fighters, including the likes of Shane Mosley, James Kirkland, Shawn Porter, Paulie Malignaggi, Alfredo Angulo, Peter Quillin, Gennady Golovkin, and several others, but in 2014 he will be looking for a serious push towards a title of his own.
