Danny Garcia vs Erik Morales II News and Latest Updates
WBC Light Welterweight title on Showtime
October 20, 2012 - Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA
The rematch will be on Showtime. Some of the undercard will be featured on Showtime Extreme.
According to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, unified jr. welterweight champion Danny Garcia will make his return to the ring on October 20th in a rematch with four-division world champion Erik Morales. The bout, billed as "Brooklyn Pride", will headline a potential Showtime-televised tripleheader at the Barclays Center and will feature several fighters from the East Coast, including WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi and undefeated middleweight contender Peter Quillin.
Erik Morales had pre fight gall bladder surgery and is claiming that this hindered his performance in his loss against Morales. Morales also came to the fight two pounds over weight and appeared out of shape in his loss to Garcia. But it was a pretty close fight and Morales gassed out in the championship rounds costing him the victory.
That’s why so far, the career of Garcia is perplexing. Garcia is not the most beautiful fighter by a long shot, but he gets the job done. Consistent and dangerous. With 15 knock outs in 24 fights he may seem as harmless as a poodle, but the record is deceiving.
Danny Garcia deserves a large fan base, and better fights. Garcia’s stock is on the rise, and boxing fans have to watch him fight a rematch against an aging fighter who’s career already ended once.
