All he does is win! On January 23, 2016, a reported 2.5 million people tuned in to Fox Sports to watch Philadelphia’s most controversial boxing figure Danny “Swift” Garcia (32-0, 18 ko’s) claim the vacant WBC Welterweight title with an entertaining 12-round decision win over Gilroy, California based contender Robert Guerrero.
The judges scored the fight 116-112, 116-112 and 116-112 across the board. As always the case with Swift – many are claiming he was the beneficiary of shaky score cards turned in by the judges.
Guerrero (33-4-1, 18 ko’s) looked young again in the early rounds – but Swift seemed to take control in the second half. The fight ended with both men firing away at each other for a full minute. Watch it here
