Danny Garcia def. Zab Judah by unanimous decision (115-112, 114-112, 116-111)

After a heated week of pre-fight confrontations, fans were expecting something special from Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah. And the fighters delivered, though not in the way I think anyone anticipated. From early on it was clear that the bad blood would not adversely impact the fight, as both men fought strong technical fights.

During the early rounds, Garcia steadily pulled ahead, outboxing Judah throughout. Judah was in serious trouble in rounds 5 and 6, then finally went down in the 8th. From there, things took a surprising turn. Never known for his resolve or ability to turn the fight around late, Judah responded to the knockdown by coming on strong down the stretch. Judah took the last 3 rounds, though his deficit from earlier in the fight meant it wasn't enough.

Post-fight, the two men hugged and shared words of respect in what felt like a much more honest moment than we often see between alleged rivals in combat sports.

Hats off to Zab Judah for a strong, veteran performance. But even bigger congrats to Danny Garcia, who, at this point, needs to be given some real respect.
