Danny Garcia knocked out unknown Rod Salka Saturday night. The fight with Salka was the first fight for Garcia since his bout with Mauricio Herrera. Many fight fans including the Showtime crew believed Herrera won the fight with Garcia. The majority decision was awarded to Garcia. Unjustly? Maybe, but either way Garcia needed to make a statement against Rod Salka. He did that by knocking the unknown fighter out in the 2nd round. However, he knocked out a fighter that most boxing fans agree he never should have been fighting. The next fight for Danny Garcia needs to be a big one.
Broner Open to Fighting Garcia If Money Is Right
Broner says he'd be open to fighting Garcia next if it made sense. I'm not sure what would be considered making sense to Broner, but Danny Garcia is the champion at 140 and that should make all the sense in the world. Adrien Broner really only has two options: He can go for another title belt or he could avenge the loss to Maidana. Anything other than that makes no sense. Nothing would help Broner's career more than going after the title belt and the 0 on Garcia's record. There really is no other fight for either of these fighters. The fight has been sitting there for awhile now. It's time for this one to happen.
Porter vs. Brook Preview, Prediction
This has all the makings of a great fight. Both fighters bring undefeated records into the fight. Shawn Porter has took on the better level of competition, and he destroyed Paulie Malignaggi in his last fight. Kell Brook is a taller fighter that will present a different kind of challenge. Porter's experience is the key here, and namely his fight with Devon Alexander. He's faced the quick handed boxer and found victory. I don't think he knocks Kell Brook out, but I do believe he will outpoint him over 12 rounds. Porter's relentless style will be too much for Kell Brook.
