Danny Garcia retained his WBC and WBA titles by defeating Mauricio Herrera on Saturday night.

The American also remained undefeated by winning the light-welterweight bout in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, on a majority decision. Two judges scored the bout 116-112 in favor of Garcia and the third had it 114-114 as Garcia improved his record to 28-0. Herrera, also a American citizen, dropped to 20-4, including seven knockouts.

Garcia, who is of Puerto Rican ancestry, had the crowd of 10100 at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez on his side. He was making the fifth defense of the WBC title he won by beating Mexico's Erik Morales on points in 2012.

It was also the fourth defense of the WBA title Garcia took from England's Amir Khan with a fourth-round stoppage in 2012. In September last year he beat Argentina's Lucas Matthysse on points.

After the fight, Garcia spoke with SHOWTIME Sportsฎ ringside reporter Jim Gray, saying, "He is a crafty veteran and I know every time I step in the ring, every fighter wants what I have. So I expect them to bring everything. I had to make adjustments and I had to push the fight. He is a good fighter but I am a true champion. I had to make adjustments and pull it out. I needed to find my comfort zone but once I adjusted and got him on the ropes I knew I was doing good. I had to keep my composure and use my power shots. He came to fight and he did and it was a great fight."

When asked if he felt he did enough to win the close decision, Garcia said, "I wanted to knock him out in front of my fans but he was tough. I know nothing is going to be easy from this point on for the rest of my career. I thought I won the fight. The Puerto Rican fans here support me. I love them."

Regarding a potential move up in weight, Garcia told Gray, "I think making 140 pounds might have affected my performance a little bit. I need to sit with my camp and see if I should go up to 147 and start a new journey. It's been getting a little hard so maybe I need to think about moving up." 

After the fight, Herrera told media that he felt he won. "I thought I was fine-tuned,'' he said. "I came perfectly prepared for this fight. I was trying to push the fight. I came to box but he wasn't making a fight so I am the one that had to make the fight. I was the one putting the pressure on to make the fight. I feel like I won the fight. I thought I finished strong at the end too. I thought I won the fight."

Not sure if danny can hang with that 147 crew, to be successful at 147 you have to have feet and danny is stationary. Thurman and the boys would eat him up!!

[QUOTE=bopbopbbe]Danny garcia just sucks. I'm sorry he almost fooled me with the matthysse win but it's clear he's just a one dimensional robot.[/QUOTE] "line up the mayweather fight!" Ellerbe shouted after this fight

[QUOTE=STAX ON DECK]you may need to think about a LOT of things Danny, you know lateral movement, defense, learning how to throw punches properly so you don't have to depend on left hooks and low blows :lol1:[/QUOTE] you may need to think about a LOT of things Broner, you know lateral movement...

[QUOTE=Foreign Soil]He is stupidly big for 140. Look at the size of his head. That's the only reason he can take a good shot, size advantage over the rest. At 147, he's going to lose that advantage. Thurman would hurt Danny bad but we know GBP won't give One Time that fight.[/QUOTE] Your sig :...

[QUOTE=tito_bandito]I still had Garcia up by two rounds even after watching it again. But every damn round was close. People are so quick to jump a bandwagon when a fighter looks normal against an opponent. Yet ppl were so quick to jump on when Danny beat Matthysse. Herrera is one of those tough ...
