Angel Garcia: Loss Bullsh*t Politics; We'll Just Go Sell Weed

By Keith Idec

NEW YORK – Angel Garcia disagrees completely with the scoring of his son’s loss to Shawn Porter.

Danny Garcia’s father and trainer called the former champion’s unanimous-decision defeat to Porter “bullsh*t politics” during a post-fight press conference early Sunday morning at Barclays Center. Each of the three judges – Don Ackerman (116-112), Julie Lederman (115-113) and Eric Marlinski (115-113) – scored their closely contested, 12-round, 147-pound championship match for Porter on Saturday night in Brooklyn.

Danny Garcia and his father feel he did enough to top Porter. As usual, Angel Garcia was more demonstrative about voicing their displeasure.

“You seen the game plan,” Angel Garcia said. “We ain’t lose that fight, bro. It’s all bullsh*t politics. It’s all it was. It’s all bullsh*t. You know that, bro. Danny ain’t lose that fight. He’s fighting on the inside – that’s not making him fight. Danny had the cleaner shots. We won the first seven rounds, easy. Because when I’m in the ring, I’m watching Danny, I’m watching his opponent.

“I’m being in a neutral corner, because I’ve gotta watch both fighters to see when Danny’s making mistakes and what he’s making. He did not win that, brother. That was all politics, bullsh*t. We just gonna sell f*cking marijuana. That’s what we gonna do. Sell a lot of f*cking weed. You want some?”

Angel Garcia laughed off his comments about selling marijuana. One of boxing’s most polarizing figures clarified several seconds later that they would sell “medical marijuana.”

His son stuck to discussing why he believes he deserved the victory over Porter (29-2-1, 17 KOs), who won the vacant WBC welterweight title.

“I thought it was close, but I thought I landed the cleaner punches,” Danny Garcia said. “And my defense was good. He didn’t really land no clean punches on my face. You know, he smothered and threw a lot of punches, but it wasn’t effective. And I just think the clean, effective punches – I mean, if you look at the highlights, all they’re showing is my highlights. So that’ll tell you everything.”

Porter threw 270 more punches than Garcia (35-2, 20 KOs), according to CompuBox’s unofficial statistics.

CompuBox credited Porter with landing 180-of-742 overall punches, just 12 more than Garcia (168-of-472). CompuBox also gave Garcia credit for connecting with five more power punches (139-of-304 to 134-of-544), but scored 17 more jabs for Porter (46-of-198 to 29-of-168).

“The 10th, 11th and 12th [rounds], I was still walking him down,” Danny Garcia said. “He was throwing punches, but it wasn’t like effective punches. I mean, I don’t know what they look for. I thought clean, effective punching is professional boxing. Amateurs is volume [punching].”

Imo danny clearly won rounds 1,2, 9 and 12,shawn rounds 4 and 6 So for a judge to score it 8-4 it means he gave every single close round to porter and the other two judges gave 5 of 6…
