Danny Garcia def. Lucas Matthysse by unanimous decision

This much anticipated fight certainly delivered, with a ferocious home stretch. For much of the fight, Danny Garcia was in control. In round 11, Garcia scored the first knockdown of the fight against Lucas Matthysse. Throughout the fight, Garcia used his technically superior striking to outbox the heavy hitting Matthysse. The first advantage for Garcia came in round 7 when he closed Matthysse's left eye. In round 11, Matthysse came on string, but ultimately, it was Garcia who took the round with the knockdown. With that, Garcia looked to have this fight in the bag.

Lucas Matthysse came out hard in round 12, swinging for the fences, but Garcia responded in kind, throwing back hard leather for a terrific final round.

In the end, Garcia earned a much deserved unanimous decision, and perhaps a new measure of respect. Great performance from Garcia.
