Danny Garcia got another controversial decision on his side when the pipped Lamont Peterson with a majority decision. The fight itself told the story of two halfs, Danny Garcia shaded it in the first 5 to 6 rounds but Peterson came back and dominated the rest 6 rounds. One Referee gave it a 114-114 while the other two made it 115-113 in favour of Danny Garcia.
This performance won’t do any good for Garcias chances of fighting winner of Pacquiao vs Mayweather, taking nothing away from him he looked a very one dimensional fighter and wild at times. Peterson movement in the first few rounds kind of frustrated garcia and towards the end of the fight he was out of gas. Having said that result could have gone either way because Peterson did not show much urgency in the opening rounds and thats probably cost him.
