Danny Garcia defeats Lucas Matthysse by a UD. One judge scores the bout 115-111, and the two judge had it 114-112. I enjoyed the fight. What Danny Garcia did was he got busy in the early landed straight shots, body shots basically letting his hands go. During the fight Matthysse's right eye was closing. In round 11 Danny Garcia drops Lucas Matthysse with a body shot. The referee counted Matthysse but he got up and was able to continue fighting. In round 12 Danny Garcia was deducted one point each from the three judges for a low blow.
Overall I enjoyed this fight but everyone and me wanted it to end by a knockout or a TKO. Instead it went the distance. I did not have a prediction to who will win this fight but I did was watched and enjoyed the fight. Congrats to Danny Garcia.
