Mikey Garcia ran his record to an ideal 37 wins in 37 battles with a one-sided beatdown of Adrien Broner on Saturday night in Brooklyn
Mikey Garcia was currently a three-division champ and among the worlds finest fighters at any weight when an extended legal spat with Top Rank supremo Bob Arum left him sidelined for more than 2 años.
Now the southern California local is back and much better than ever.
The unbeaten 29-year-old from Oxnard strengthened his pound-for-pound qualifications on Saturday night in Brooklyn, providing a master class in tactical pressure and ring generalship to win a consentaneous choice over Adrien Broner prior to a crowd of 12,084 at Brooklyns Barclays. All 3 judges scored it for Garcia by ratings of 117-111, 116-112 y 116-112. (The Guardian had it 117-111.)
Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs), whos held titles at featherweight, incredibly featherweight and light-weight, went up to 140lbs for Saturdays non-title bout without any apparent match waiting for at junior welter. His challenger was the cocksure Broner, whos gathered alphabet titles in 4 departments and boiled down from welterweight for the event.
En efecto, Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) had actually lost previously. Sí, hes typically appeared like a star versus middling opposition and regular versus the elite, most significantly in previous losses to Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter. No one has actually ever looked as excellent versus Broner as did Garcia on Saturday night.
Both males bewared in the opening phases with Broner revealing his hallmark speed and motion on the outdoors, wanting to move and stick and circle his challenger. Garcia, who cut off the ring perfectly all night, started to close the range from the 3rd round, working behind the jab and choosing up his activity.
Broner, who turned 28 hoy, not did anything to make his challengers regard. The repercussions of that carelessness showed alarming.
By the middle rounds Garcia remained in overall control, strolling his guy down and making him pay with penalizing diet plan of blows to the head and body. Even when Broner remained in variety, the Cincinnati native didnt let his hands go. And with excellent factor: whenever he did, Garcia existed to make him pay with a one-two mix.
