Last night on Premier Boxing Champions, Danny “Swift” Garcia (32-0, 18 KO’s) defeated Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-4-1, 18 KO’s), to capture the vacant WBC Welterweight Championship.  Guerrero looked good early on in the fight, as he pressured Garcia all over the ring, while landing some nice punches.  In fact, Guerrero looked like he was on his way to an easy victory, in the first half of the fight.  Hw won two of the first 4 rounds, with a very even 5th round.

In the 6th however, Danny Garcia would find his range and start taking over the fight with clean, big shots.  Garcia’s straight right and left hook completely took over, and slowed Guerrero down the rest of the way.  Looking a bit fatigued, Guerrero would not win another round until the 10th, where he had a good one.  Garcia would take the 11th, and then the 12th would be an all out brawl.  Both fighters got a standing ovation at the conclusion of the 12th round, for their relentless attack.  It would be too little too late for Guerrero, as all three judges (and myself) had a final score of 116-112 in favor of Danny Garcia, who stays undefeated, and becomes the new WBC Welterweight Champion.
