This past Saturday at the iconic Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, we had a thrilling contest between two of the top welterweight fighters of the world, as Shawn Porter overcame former champion Danny Garcia and will now look to go on to bigger and better things.

The beginning of this matchup showed how this thrilling contest was going to be an exciting, action-packed fight where controversy would loom. Both fighters had suffered losses to reigning WBA champion Keith Thurman, but coming into this match they were still top, elite-level fighters in the prime of their careers. The contradictory styles of each man was on display as they were battling in a high-stakes contest for the prestigious WBC title.

On Saturday night, Shawn Porter produced one of his most complete performances to date in defeating former world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia via close unanimous decision. Taking place inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and aired by SHOWTIME, Porter was a little bit busier and more consistent throughout the 12-round showdown, winning by scores of 116-112 and 115-113 twice.

Porter (29-2-1, 17 KO’s) captures the WBC welterweight title with the victory while Garcia (34-2, 20 KO’s) suffers his second defeat in his past three bouts, despite putting up another very strong effort.

On Monday afternoon, inside of the Dream Hotel in Downtown Manhattan, former world champions Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter came face to face ahead of their big Sep. 8 showdown. The Porter vs. Garcia clash will take place from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will be aired on SHOWTIME, with the vacant WBC welterweight title at stake.

After coming face to face at the presser, and exchanging a few words with one another, the two men appear ready to go, as they will be heading back to their respective training camps for the time being. For Garcia (34-1, 20′s), who is coming off of a ninth round knockout over Brandon Rios in February, he’s eager to get back in the ring and show who’s boss.

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.

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.
