Danny Garcia defeated Robert Guerrero with a unanimous decision and becomes the new WBC walterweight champion on Saturday night in Los Angeles. All three judges scored the fight to 116-112 where Guerrero started the stronger but faded in later rounds.
A certain Floyd Mayweather was on the ringside who saw WBC belt recently vacated by him on the shoulders of the new champion in Danny Garcia. Rumours are that Floyd Mayweather will be making a comeback by September 2015 which might very well be against Garcia or every Manny Pacquiao if he beats Bradley.
Danny Garcia came in the ring with a mask on and looked comfortable throughout the right. He kind of deployed a counter attacking strategy with letting Guerrero come to him. When ever Guerrero had some success and caught him, Garcia always came back with a couple of neat shots to pick up points every now and than.
It will be unfair if we class this performance as dominant. but Garcia looked reasonably comfortable and never got into exchanges what Guerrero was looking for.
