Saturday Showtime PPV Boxing Is On The MenuTheDuck
Garcia comes into this fight with the perfect 27-0 record as well as the current WBA Super World light welterweight champion and WBC light welterweight champion. Herrera is a veteran that has been around the block, these types of credentials do not faze a fighter of his magnitude and I think that might actually motivate him that much more to come away with the upset. In all honesty, now a days there are no more upsets because if a fight goes to the judges you could have won every round in the eyes of the world that the score cards might say the opposite.
Danny is a 25 year old orthodox fighter that loves to play with his known jab only to follow it up with what I consider being the hardest left hook I in the division. Garcia will need his endurance for this fight because Herrera is not the kind of fighter that gores down easily, so expect this one to go the distance. Garcia´s resume is very impressive, his last four fights are all wins against guys like Morales twice, Judah, Khan and Matthysse. Garcia is really the experienced fighter people make him out to be.
Mauricio Herrera does not scare easily, he stands at 20 wins while having gone the distance with most of them, he is not known for his hard hitting hands but more like a cheese player in the ring, taking it all but dishing a good amount back and being able to take the beating all night long. In his last four fights he lost two and won his last two so there will be a little more push from the Herrera camp to keep pressing Garcia.
Danny is the big favorite at -1100 with the total set at 9.5 rounds out of a possible 12, I like the over, both of these guys have proven they can take a punch as well as give one even though this will be the hardest hitting fighter to step in the ring against Herrera. Take the over laying between -180 and 240.
