On Saturday night, Feb. 17, former two-division world champion Danny Garcia returned to the ring to score an emphatic 9th round TKO over former lightweight champion Brandon Rios. The bout took place inside of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev. on SHOWTIME’s airwaves and it was a contest that was far better than many expected, as Rios gave a great account of himself prior to the stoppage.

But where does Garcia (34-1, 20 KO’s) go from here? There are a lot of interesting names at 147 pounds, including IBF champion Errol Spence Jr., WBA/WBC champion Keith Thurman, WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn, former lineal junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford, former IBF champion Shawn Porter, and emerging contender Yordenis Ugas, amongst others.

Check below to see what people in Las Vegas are saying about Garcia’s victory, as well as all the action going down at 147 pounds, as we swung through Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Gym to chop it up.
