James (Buddy) McGirt battered hometown favorite Frankie Warren in Corpus Christi, Tex., with a smashing left jab and jolting overhand rights and won the vacant International Boxing Federation junior welterweight championship when the scheduled 15-round fight was stopped in the 12th round.

Referee Barry Yeats stopped the one-sided contest at 1:34 with Warren unable to see out of a battered left eye and with limited vision from a right eye that also was swollen both above and below.
