               === Garcia TKOs Khan in title unification bout ===
 
 Las  Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Danny Garcia scored a fourth-round technical
 knockout  of Amir Khan in a light welterweight title unification bout Saturday
 night.
 
 Garcia  (24-0, 15 KOs),  who sustained a cut above his right eye in the second
 round  before flooring  Khan three times, kept  his WBC title and took the WBA
 belt from Khan (26-3, 18 KOs).
 
 Referee  Kenny  Bayless stopped the  fight with 32  seconds left in the fourth
 round, even after Khan shook his head signaling he was okay to continue.
 
 The  Philadelphia native sent  Khan to the canvas with a stunning left hook to
 the  right ear  in the final minute of  the third. Khan barely got out of that
 round  and was  knocked down in the  opening seconds of the fourth when a left
 hook clipped him on the top of the head.
 
 Khan  landed a  solid uppercut to the  chin with about two minutes left in the
 round,  but was the  recipient of a solid right from Garcia. Khan stumbled and
 touched his glove to the canvas, signaling another knockdown.
 
 A  native of  Great Britain, the 25-year-old Khan appeared in his eighth title
 fight.  Garcia was  coming off a 12-round unanimous decision over Erik Morales
 in March.
