Boxing fans were not too keen on watching Garcia vs Peterson as Matthysse blown peterson away in just three rounds last year, but this fight is a big step up from the one Danny Garcia was involved in his last outing against a pretty much lightweight fighter Rod Salka. Peterson on the other hand has been on the downhill spiral since beating Amir Khan several years ago and Lemont Peterson is coming into this fight on the back of a one sided affair against Edgar Santana on the same fight card as Garcia-vs-Salka.
Boxing and particularly Garcia fans were hoping that he will give a rematch to Mauricio Herrera who in many experts eyes won against Danny in Puerto Rico but Danny got a backdoor decision.
