Photos from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as former junior welterweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (31-0, 18 KO’s) stops former two-division titlist Paulie Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KO’s) at the 2:22 mark of the ninth round. The bout aired on ESPN as a part of another “Premier Boxing Champions” telecast.

Malignaggi has stated that he will likely forego fighting about this tough loss but the future continues to look bright for Garcia, as he is one of the biggest names in the welterweight class given his great run at 140 pounds that saw him best the likes of Amir Khan, Lucas Matthysse, and most recently Lamont Peterson in a tough fight.
