BAYAMON, Puerto Rico - Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny "Swift" Garcia (28-0, 16 KOs) defeated Mauricio "El Maestro" Herrera (20-4, 7 KOs) via a majority decision to remain undefeated on Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd at Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXINGฎ.

Garcia established himself in the first round, landing the bigger punches against Herrera. But it was quickly clear that the challenger wasn't going to let Garcia off easy, peppering the champion with strong shots to his body and head. By the end of round four, Garcia's corner, specifically his father and trainer, Angel Garcia, could be heard telling the champion urgently to step-up his game and take control. Herrera, of Riverside, Calif., pressed on and proved himself as a worthy opponent with both fighters exchanging vicious shots throughout the extremely close match.

With the raucous crowd partial to the defending champion, whose father was born and raised in Puerto Rico, Garcia seemed to be carried by the cheers in what turned out to be the toughest fight of his career. At the end of the fight, SHO STATS reported that Garcia had landed 150 power punches compared to Herrera's 82. Herrera landed more overall punches with 221 to Garcia's 204. The final scores were 114-114, 116-112 and, 116-112.

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."

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts]Danny just couldn't get motivated for this fight, and he took too much time off which is why his timing was off. But he did enough to win. Herrera is just unwatchable. We appreciate him, but nobody wants to watch him, and he was not going to be handed those belts for jabb...

Herrera won the fight. Without any doubt whatsoever, Herrera won this fight. Garcia's power punches had no effect on Herrera and he walked right through them. Herrera's punches definitely had more effect and really bothered Garcia. In the 12 Th. round, Herrera really rocked Garcia near the end of...
