On Thursday afternoon, the final press conference was held ahead of this weekend’s Danny Garcia vs. Robert Guerrero showdown. The match, pitting two former world champions vying for the vacant WBC welterweight title, will take place as part of a Premier Boxing Champions telecast on Fox from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.

During his time on the dais, Guerrero’s father and trainer Ruben took a few swipes at Angel Garcia, Danny’s father and trainer. Ruben has been talking quite a bit these past few weeks, partly due to the manner in which Garcia has claimed his Puerto Rican heritage in previous fights, and party because that is simply what he does best.

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.

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.
