Swift out-slugs Guerrero to win his first Welterweight title

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

  1. I saw a different fight the second time I watched it, than the one I saw the first time. I thought it was closer the first time I saw it, but then I took a look at it a second time and realized Danny Garcia did some really good boxing. Sometimes you need a second look to see the things you didn’t see the first time I guess.

  2. Jesus Garcia Gutierrez statment is proof that no matter how much you try to run from your past people will never let you 4 get it!! I Didn’t see the Hererra fight but I heard Danny didnt do so well but HE BEAT this fight.

  3. Garcia vs. Guerrero I thought was a competitive fight in the first six rounds, but after Danny settled down and got his timing right he started to separate himself. And showed who was the younger, quicker, smarter, hungrier fighter. I thought in rounds 6-12 he just out classed Guerrero & completely dominated the fight. Gee E. Culmer you’re statement is right on point. It’s crazy this young mans past will haunt him, because of decisions other men made. The way I see it he got the win, someone saw it that way.

  4. Danny Garcia had a real slugfest for about 6 rounds catching up to Robert Guerrero and then taking over in the last 6. Per the WBC Garcia must defend his new WBC 147 pound title against No. 1 contender Amir Kahn. It would be a rematch with Kahn that was a real “shoot out!” It’s the second divisional title Garcia has gained since moving up from super lightweight.
