Some rounds feature fireworks from the opening bell. Others take a little while to percolate, such as Round 6 of the world title fight between Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero.
Right after Danny Garcia won his unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero on Saturday night in Los Angeles, Guerrero was adamant he wanted a rematch.
For five rounds, Robert Guerrero looked like a fighter who was younger, hungrier and sharper than Danny Garcia. After that, Garcia showed why he’s an undefeated world champion who dominated the 140-pound ranks, then made the right decision to move up.
Danny Garcia held world titles at 140 pounds from early 2012 right up until June. That’s when it became clear that the two catchweight fights he’d most recently contested weren’t an aberration, but rather steps on the path to 147.
Danny Garcia has fought plenty of tough guys. Lucas Matthysse had never been down in his career before he fought Garcia. Four-division champion Erik Morales had only been dropped by Marco Antonio Barrera and Manny Pacquiao before facing Garcia twice in 2012.
Robert Guerrero would love to punch up video of one of Danny Garcia’s losses to glean insight on how to beat the man he’ll face Saturday night. Just one problem: Garcia is 31-0, thus no such video exists, leaving Guerrero to settle for the next best thing.
The creepiest scenario for horror movies is easily anything that involves murderous clowns or evil puppets. If someone ever figures out a way to make a successful “It”/“Child’s Play” crossover movie, it’ll ruin sleep for an entire generation.
