Final Fight Results
The fight between Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero to be held on January 23, 2016 at the Staples Center will be part of the unprecedented welterweight tournament. This is the fight between WBC superlightweight champion Danny Garcia and former WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero will be part of this format.
Danny Garcia, who fought twice each in 2013 and 2014, continued his two-fight-a-year pace in 2015, first earning a narrow majority-decision win over Lamont Peterson on April 11, then dismantling Malignaggi on August 1. Both bouts took place in Brooklyn, New York, and both were contested at catchweights.
Robert Guerrero opened 2015 with a lopsided unanimous-decision loss to top 147-pound contender Keith Thurman on March 7. He returned to the ring three months later, rising from a fourth-round knockdown and barely escaping with a 10-round split-decision win over Aron Martinez.
“Guerrero comes to fight, and he’s faced the best in the sport,” Garcia said. “This is a huge opportunity for me to show why I’m a star, and there’s no better place to do that than in Los Angeles, where stars are born.” Said Guerrero: “If there ever was a fight that defined the word ‘war,’ it’s this fight. I guarantee this is going to be a historic fight. A Mexican-American vs. a Puerto Rican-American, it’s a bitter rivalry. “Danny Garcia is a great champion, and I know we’re going to put on a tremendous show January 23. It’s going to be fireworks—and I can’t wait!”
Garcia says he feels better at 147 pounds than he did at 140: It’s apparent that it became a struggle for Garcia, listed at 5-foot-8, to make the junior welterweight limit, so even though he was the recognized champion of the division, he began inching his way up in weight 17 months ago. While Malignaggi is past his prime, the fact Garcia stopped him in the ninth round showed that he could carry his power into a heavier weight class. The step-up in weight for the 27-year-old, he said, has been good for him. “When I fought at 140, I was always mean while trying to cut weight. I was never in a good mood. I think that’s why a lot of times I would go in there and just fight,” Garcia said. “But now I’m able to think more; I’m able to be a lot smarter. My punches are crispier and my stamina is better. I’m able to run more miles, train harder, more endurance. I may have had the energy at 140, [but] at 147, I just feel a lot stronger.”
Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero do battle for the vacant WBC welterweight world title in Los Angeles on Saturday. The bout represents Garcia’s second at the 140-pound weight category while Guerrero is looking to improve on a recent record which has seen him lose two of his last four fights.
In fact there are questions over whether Guerrero is worthy of a shot at another world title having lost of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Keith Thurman. The 32-year-old was also fortunate to beat Aaron Martinez on points after being knocked down by the American last June.
Garcia is more than deserving of his latest title shot having outclass Paulie Malignaggi on his welterweight debut last year, with an impressive ninth round knock-out. The boxer of Puerto Rican descent was treading water in the super lightweight division but this fight represents the first genuine test of his durability at this level.
The victor is likely to be paired with Briton Amir Khan in a mandatory rematch, with the Olympic silver medallist preferring a shot at the WBC crown rather than the IBF title held by fellow-countryman Kell Brook. Garcia beat Khan via knockout in 2012 and his unbeaten record will take some stopping.

What’s your fight prediction of this fight?
Finality, Danny Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) will be matched up against the struggling light punching #6 WBC, #14 WBA Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KOs) in a 12 round bout on January 23rd on Premier Boxing Champions on Fox Deportes next year from the Staples Center in Los Angles, California.
Shall we give it up to Garcia? Or to Guerrero?
This is the Danny Garcia vs Robert Guerrero Fight tream, update, and everythin here for the Garcia vs Guerrero fight. And it’s gonna be a great fight!
Not a bad fight at all, Garcia is really a great boxer! Some great leather to the face from Guerrero, but I am stunned he thought he won by going from corner to corner after the fight, but maybe he did it for very welcome showmanship.
It might be a cliché, but I can’t wait to see Garcia do bigger and greater things 🙂 More offensive too, he needs to be.
Result of fight between Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero.
Danny Garcia vs. Robert Guerrero winner, scorecard and reaction,e result of fight between two WBC welterweight champion. Danny “Swift” Garcia (32-0) and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-4-1) put on a nice show for the fans in Los Angeles at the Staples Center Saturday night.
After a slow start that saw Guerrero’s aggression and boxing ability allow him to seize the early rounds, Garcia’s movement and pinpoint power punching wound up being the difference.
Garcia was forced to fight moving backward. Ultimately, he proved firing in retreat didn’t take him out of his comfort zone. The sixth round was the bout’s turning point.
Garcia opened up his attack with vicious left hooks and laser-like right hands that snapped Guerrero’s head back. As usual, The Ghost was as tough as an overcooked steak. He ate the shots that would have dropped most welterweights and kept coming forward.
In the subsequent rounds, every time Guerrero attempted to establish momentum, a one-two combination from Garcia would stamp out his fire. By the eighth round, Guerrero was doing more chasing and absorbing punches than he was doing damage to Garcia.
The final round was a treat as the two men spent the last 30 seconds slugging it out as the fans stood and cheered. When the judges’ scorecards were read, it should have come as no surprise.
Even still, many fans booed as Garcia conducted his post-fight interview. Chalk that reaction up to the fact Guerrero is a California native. He gave a great effort, but the decision was the right one.
The win puts Garcia in position for a sweet payday in his next fight. The title he won Saturday night was vacated when Floyd Mayweather Jr. retired. Swift will now have a target on his back as one of the titleholders in what has become the sport’s glamour division.
A potential opponent for Garcia in his next fight could be the winner of the Shawn Porter vs. Keith “One Time” Thurman bout on March 12. Thurman is the WBA world champion, and he did color commentary for the Garcia-Guerrero battle Saturday night highlights and replay.
When asked if he would like to face Garcia next, Thurman emphatically said, “I would love to fight Garcia,” per the Fox broadcast. Thurman has a serious challenge on his hands with Porter, who is a former world champion at 147 pounds. If Thurman is able to get by Porter, a bout with Garcia would be of major interest to most in the boxing community.
Not only would the fight pit two young and talented fighters against in their prime each other, but the scrap would also be a unification bout. Moving toward one dominant champion is always a fan-friendly concept.
Guerrero didn’t look horrible in defeat, but he seems to consistently hit his talent ceiling against elite competition. We saw it against Mayweather—who is obviously on another level—back in 2013 and again Saturday night; Guerrero just wasn’t good enough to beat Garcia.
He’s now lost three of his last five fights, and quite honestly, his win over Aaron Martinez in June 2015 was a gift. At 32 years old, Guerrero is at a point in his career where he may have to ask himself some serious questions.
If he absorbs another loss to a top-notch opponent, he’ll almost certainly be relegated to gatekeeper status. For a fighter who has been a legitimate world champion in three divisions, that may not be something he finds as an attractive enough option to continue his career.
