When you're a fighter training for the next big bout, your diet is restricted. That doesn't mean fighters don't indulge here or there.

In Philadelphia, Danny Garcia is surrounded by some of the best cuisine in the world. 

When one of the best fighters in the world is looking to snack on an off-day out of the gym, his go-to treat is a hot Philly cheesesteak from Pat’s King of Steaks.

Smiliar to it’s competitive counter-part Geno’s right across the street, Pat’s boasts the “original” Philly cheesesteak, to which Danny agrees.

"There’s a lot of Philly cheesesteak places in the city that claim they’re the best or the first," Garcia says. "But despite them all, I’ve been coming to Pat’s since I could remember – no reason to change it up.”

What does Danny order when he hits up Pat's? 

The original cheesesteak with peppers.

RIP to that steak

Keith "One Time" Thurman shares with fans which KO's he thinks are his best and why.

With 21 knockouts in 24 fights, Keith Thurman has no shortage of highlight-reel stoppages.  

While fans of the 26-year-old Florida native who goes by the nickname “One Time,” might have trouble picking their favorite KO, Thurman has narrowed his shortlist to his top three.

1. Diego Chaves (10th round KO, :28)​​

“This is probably my favorite knockout, because he was previously unbeaten and a proven puncher,” Thurman said. “I knew the knockout was coming before he did, because I read him like a book and delivered a perfect punch.”

Thurman knocked out Chavez with a devastating punch.

2. Carlos Quintana (4th round TKO, 2:19)

“Outside of Paul Williams, nobody dismantled him like I did that night,” said Thurman, who claimed his first world title with the victory and retired Quintana from boxing on Nov. 24, 2012 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif.

The punch (at 2:19) that sent Carlos Quintana into retirement.

3. Jesus Soto Karass (9th round TKO, 2:21)

“This is probably the KO that my fans like the most,” said Thurman. “Karass was a strong durable guy and not too many guys had stopped him. So too finish him the way I did, was exciting.”

Thurman's favorite knockout happens to be the same ones his fans like most.

Former World Champion fights to educate and call attention to water pollution in his own community.

It may seem like a joke with the slogan being so obvious: “Nothing but rain goes down the drain” popping up on billboards and bus stops around Gilroy, Calif. and nearby Morgan Hill, Calif.—but to Robert Guerrero knocking out storm pollution is no laughing matter. “It might seem kind of trivial, but storm water pollution in our area is a big deal. I wanted to lend my name to just send the message that everyone can help out in cleaning up pollution so that we can have quality drinking water in the Bay area,” Guerrero said.

With help from “The Ghost,” Guerrero’s hometown of Gilroy and Morgan Hill are launching a sixth-month campaign to inform citizens on how they can help clean up and prevent storm water pollution.

Like him or not, Adrien "The Problem" Broner can often be misunderstood.

Adrien Broner often grabs headlines. He can be loud, he can be opinionated, and he can be outrageous. Yet Broner is also a serious fighter, father and sports fan who often posts level-headed glimpses into what he's really like away from the cameras and the spotlight. Here's three posts you must see to better understand this talented - and flamboyant fighter. 1. Chino with The Problem

I'm a competitive person and this is the guy that gave me my first lost its only right that I get a rematch..... It's big money for the both of us and the fans want to see if you can beat me again or maybe I knock your ass out this time..... #LetsSEE #StrapUP#BronerVSChino2

Marcos Maidana did hand Broner his first - and only - loss. When they ran into each other before the Khan-Alexander fight, Broner grabbed a picture with Chino. Of course he did use it as a platform to call for a rematch. WIll it happen?

Broner loves his kids and here's another example. Apparently his young boys got a hold of his phone and snapped this adorable selfie.

3. The Big O

Broner is a proud Cincinnatian. Right before Christmas, Broner had a visit from basketball legend Oscar Robertson. Robertson starred for the Cincinnati Royals and wanted to watch Broner's workout.

Robert Guerrero fought just once in 2014, but those 12 rounds he spent in the ring were some of the most exciting in boxing last year.

The 31-year-old Guerrero (32-2-1), a four-division world champion, was severely tested by relatively unknown Japanese fighter Yoshihiro Kamegai (24-2-1) before walking away with a severely swollen left eye to go along with a hard-earned unanimous-decision victory at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, on June 21. Making his first ring appearance since a lopsided loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 2013, Guerrero was favored to easily dispose of Kamegai in their 147-pound bout. That changed when the hard-charging Kamegai opened up a big cut over Guerrero’s left eye in the sixth round, forcing the California native to fight the second half of the bout with his eye nearly closed. Despite the pronounced swelling and large laceration, Guerrero landed some of his best shots in the final round of their 12-round slugfest, earning the victory with judges’ scores of 116-112, 117-111, 117-111. While neither fighter knocked the other one down, their punishing back-and-forth action led numerous media outlets to name the bout as one of the best of 2014. "I fell into that banging again, and that's something I've got to work on," Guerrero said afterward. "I wanted to box on the outside, but I have a habit of banging away and exchanging."

Guerrero's epic battle as voted one of the best "slugfests" of the year.

Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero grew from a fledgling young fighter into a world champion living in Gilroy, California. To show how much the community has meant to him, Guerrero decided he needed to give a little extra back for Thanksgiving.

Guerrero, along with wife Casey, donated $5,000 to help pay for 300 meals that the Salvation Army served in his hometown. "We're a tight community. We all know each other, and we all love each other,” Guerrero said, leading the prayer prior to the dinner. Helping out the citizens of Gilroy is nothing new to Guerrero. He has often given back to his hometown, where the former champ grew up as one of six brothers in a boxing family. Going through his share of tough times as a child has made him appreciate all the blessings he has received, and served as a constant reminder to always help those who are less fortunate. “The problem with boxing is that very few guys really make it in the sport, so to have a community like Gilroy be behind you and support you through everything, it helps you get through adversity,” Guerrero said. “That’s why I wanted to give back to Gilroy in a small way and host this Thanksgiving dinner in part with the Salvation Army. “[I enjoy] doing fundraisers, helping the Salvation Army, passing out items to the homeless, just being there and spreading the love and letting people know that there is somebody like myself, a professional athlete who is willing to help out the community—to inspire them to better themselves and be a hard worker and get out there and get what they want in life.”

Gilroy's own Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero spent his Thanksgiving serving his community.

Showtime Boxing named Adrien Broner’s vicious left uppercut against Emmanuel Taylor its “Punch of the Year.”

Broner landed the devastating punch in the final round of his 12-round unanimous-decision victory in front of his hometown Cincinnati fans on September 6.

Three-division world champion Adrien Broner donated $10,000 in toys to children in his hometown of Cincinnati.

He showed up at a local boxing center with an Army truck full of presents, and was met by hundreds of kids. Broner put on the event in conjunction with the Toys for Tots foundation.
