Why did they make a card with two faded feather fisted former champions vs younger opponents who are large favorites? Strange matchmaking.

[QUOTE=Dean_Razorback;15927643]man, garcia looks pretty big, why hasn't he moved up before?[/QUOTE] I was thinking the same. He's really big.

I'm going with DG all the way on this one fellas. I'm basing it off the Broner and Malignaggi fight. Broner was flat footed and was able to out point Malignaggi, Danny have a more dynamic side to him.
