James (Buddy) McGirt, former International Boxing Federation junior welterweight champion, recovered from a second-round knockdown to score a 10-round unanimous welterweight decision over Tony Baltazar at Swan Lake, N.Y.

McGirt won the fight despite double vision in his right eye after taking Baltazar’s thumb in it in the first round. The problem worsened in the seventh, when Baltazar caught McGirt with a right jab to the eye.
