Danny Garcia: When I'm at My Best - Nobody Can Beat Me!

Former two-division champion Danny "Swift" Garcia (35-2, 21 KOs) dropped Adrian Granados (20-7-2, 14 KOs) three times before stopping him in round seven Saturday night in a welterweight showdown that headlined Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes from Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
 
"I've said it before, when Danny Garcia is at his best, nobody can beat him," said Garcia. "I had gotten a little comfortable in the past, but I put my 110 percent into this fight and when I do, I beat everyone."
 
Garcia got his offense started early, deflecting a right hand from Granados in round two and throwing a perfect left hook counter that dropped Granados for the first time in the fight.

Granados continued to push and tried to change the tide, but an overhand right at the end of an exchange by Garcia sent Granados down for the second time in round two.
 
"It felt good landing that big left hook," said Garcia. "I was proud of my performance. I thought I did a great job tonight."
 
Granados tried to find ways to slow Garcia's momentum, but while trying to crowd Garcia he was too often caught with power punches on the inside. Round four saw Granados begin to bleed heavily from the nose and in round five Granados was dropped for the third time, this time from a combination Garcia delivered while he had Granados on the ropes.

"The way to make a statement tonight was to stop him," said Garcia. "The game plan was to break him down. I have too many tools. I couldn't let him hang around with me.
 
"He wanted to get closer to me and make it a dogfight. But I surprised him when I stood with him and banged to the body. Then I started making him miss and that's when I stopped him."
 
In round seven, Garcia landed 48% of his power punches according to CompuBox, and after buzzing him several times, unleashed a flurry while Granados was on the ropes that forced referee Thomas Taylor to stop the bout 1:33 into round seven.

Number 6 Danny Garcia performed better than the top 1-5 P4P welterweight in the first half of the year!
