World-ranked junior-middleweight Glen Tapia will try to keep his unbeaten streak intact tonight at Bally's Atlantic City.

Tapia (19-0, 11 KOs), a Passaic native, is ranked 10th by the WBO and 14th by the IBF. He will face veteran Elco Garcia (27-8, 15 KOs), of Ignacio, Colo., in a 10-round main event of a card promoted by Las Vegas-based Top Rank.

Tapia, 23, is coming off an eighth-round TKO over then-unbeaten Abraham Han in Las Vegas on July 12. Garcia, 42, has won two straight, including an upset victory over Antonio Mesquita (35-3, 27 KOs) last year.
