The Barclays Center in New York City will be treated to an incredible boxing match as Danny Garcia fights Shawn Porter for the vacant WBC welterweight title. These are two of the greatest welterweight fighters in the world and it is an incredible treat to watch them fight against each other. This should be an amazing contest.
Danny Garcia enters this fight with a professional boxing record of 34 wins and 1 loss. This is an outstanding record which has seen the American fighter become a champion in two different weight classes. This is an incredible record and it shows the great quality of the fighter. Garcia’s only loss came in March 2017 and the American has only fought once since that defeat. The fight was in February of this year where he won via knockout. Garcia is an outstanding fighter and it was clear to see his disappointment when his unbeaten streak was ended. I am sure he will be determined to ensure he doesn’t lose again.
His opponent, Shawn Porter won the WBC silver welterweight title in his last fight. Porter has a record of 28 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw. While this is not as good of a record as Garcia, it is still very impressive. Porter is a very good boxer and is considered by many to be the best in the world. This will be a big test for Shawn Porter since he is fighting one of the best of all time. Porter will need to be at his best if he wishes to win the vacant WBC welterweight title.
Both of these fighters are among the best in the world but there can only be one winner. I am going to predict that winner to be Danny Garcia. Garcia looks very focussed since his loss in 2017 and I am sure he will be good enough to ensure he doesn’t get a second loss in this fight.
