Danny Garcia: Porter Loss Was Tough, I Have A lot of Fight Left!

Former two division world champion Danny Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) is very motivated to rebound, after suffering defeats in two of his last three fights.

Garcia lost a twelve round split decision, and his WBC welterweight title, when he fought Keith Thurman in March 2017 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

 He was able to get back on track in February, with a brutal ninth round knockout of former world champion Brandon Rios at the Mandalay Bay is Las Vegas.

The fight with Rios was a World Boxing Council final eliminator.

But Garcia's plans shifted, when Thurman vacated his world title due to inactivity. Thurman, who suffered several injuries that derailed return plans, has been out of the ring since beating Garcia.

With Thurman out of the way, Garcia received the opportunity to recover the WBC title at Barclays, when he faced fellow former champ Shawn Porter in a battle for the vacant strap.

In a tough, close battle, Porter walked away with a twelve round unanimous decision victory - and the WBC title.

Now Garcia is ready to get back on the horse and chase down another world title.

“Both losses were tough for me, but being a true champion, I still have a lot of fight left in me,” said Garcia, 30, to Premier Boxing Champions.

As far as what's next, there are numerous options for Garcia.

Garcia is advised by powerful boxing manager Al Haymon. And there are numerous possibilities under Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions label - including rematches with both Thurman and Porter, a battle with IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence, Cuba's Yordenis Ugas, Lamont Peterson and several others.

“I’ve gotta sit back and see what’s next for me, go back to the drawing board, get back on track, seeing what we’ve gotta do to improve, get better and close out a great career,” Garcia said.

[QUOTE=dibzvincent143;19131635]I don’t think that’d position him for a rematch. But yup, a good stay busy fight. I think Broner will perform better against a low output fighters in Danny. He was outworked by maidana, garcia and porter. Give him good…

I think its time to pack it up. I think its better if Danny Garcia retires decent than to retire a bum.
