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.

On Saturday night, in Brooklyn, New York, former junior welterweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (31-0, 18 KO’s) stopped former two-division titlist Paulie Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KO’s) in the ninth round of their welterweight bout.

The bout was part of a “Premier Boxing Champions” show on ESPN and after a slow start, Garcia picked up the steam and repeatedly hurt Malignaggi. Referee Arthuer Mercante Jr. waived the match off at 2:22 of the round, with Malignaggi still on his feet.

Looks like Philadelphia’s Danny Garcia has elected to relinquish his WBC junior welterweight title that he captured in March of 2012 after defeating Erik Morales.

Garcia’s last two contests, a majority-decision over Lamont Peterson in April and a 2nd round knockout over Rod Salka this past August, were fought above the junior welterweight limit of 140 pounds and those in the industry knew well ahead of time that it was time for the young champion to move up.
