Chat with Danny “Swift” Garcia, Super Lightweight World Boxing Champion – 2013

Danny García is an undefeated American professional boxer of Puerto Rican descent and the current WBC, WBA (Super), and Ring Magazine light-welterweight Champion.

Danny Garcia faced off against thirty-five year old Zab Judah on April 27, 2013. Garcia out-boxed Judah for the majority of the fight, landing powerful shots that stunned Judah and eventually scored a knockdown in round 8 with a straight right hand to the head. However, Judah came back in the tenth round and eleventh round and landed the majority of the punches thrown by either fighter in those two rounds.

Both fighters then came on strong in the twelfth round to conclude the bout. Despite this, Judah’s late success wasn’t nearly enough to secure victory; as all of Garcia’s success throughout and early and middle rounds, as well as the knockdown he scored in the eighth round, was enough (and seemed enough) to earn a (unanimous) decision victory. Garcia later stated after the fight that Judah was the toughest and most crafty fighter he’s ever faced. Garcia is now rumored to fight against Lucas Matthysse.
