Danny Garcia Dominates Kendall Holt Over Twelve

By Chris LaBate

Staoles Center, Los Angeles - Danny Garcia (22-0, 14KOs) got the biggest win of his career with a dominating twelve round split decision over former junior welterweight champion Kendall Holt (27-5, 15KOs). The scores were odd. A criminal score of 115-113 for Holt, and two scores of 117-111 for Garcia.

After Holt controlled most of the two first two rounds, Garcia took over the third and started landing big right hands and damaging shots to the body. Garcia more active to dominate the fourth. Holt was landing a little better in the fifth, but he was still being far too inactive for his own good. Garcia rallied in the final twenty seconds to steal away the sixth. Holt face was swelling in the seventh, especially the left eye.

Garcia continued to target Holt's body in the eight. There was an accidental clash of heads. When Holt went to touch gloves with Garcia, the young prospect pulled a Mayweather and landed a combination, which woke Holt up and made him react with a fluffy of punches.

Garcia's left eye started swelling up in the ninth. Holt was coming forward and trying to land something damaging. He caught Garcia with a few. The prospect started getting very cautious, but caught Holt with a big right that shooks his legs in the final minute.

Garcia outhustled and outworked Holt in the tenth and eleventh rounds. The end of the eleventh was target practice, with Garcia landing easily as Holt stopped punching. The trend continued in the final round, Garcia dominated the final three minutes until the bell.
