Last night in PR, live on Showtime fans got the chance to witness another great boxing robbery. Danny Garcia was soundly outboxed for the vast majority of the fight, but yet was gifted a majority decision. As a writer and a boxing fan, it grows very tiresome to have to continue to write about the same things over and over.
Mauricio Herrera boxed the fight of his life and was robbed. He will likely not get a rematch, although even if he does he wouldn’t likely win. Nine out of ten times Garcia would edge out Herrera. Much like Vera vs Chavez one, last night we witnessed a brave warrior get his greatest performance stolen from him.
From here look for Herrera to get a shot at Lucas Matthysse later this year. Danny Garcia will likely move to welterweight and take yet another soft touch.
