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.
