Who is Danny Garcia, or rather, who was he?
You might never have known the light welterweight from Philadelphia was the WBC champion. His last victory, before Saturday’s destruction of former WBA champ Amir Khan – a very big name in boxing – was against a fading Erik Morales.
Garcia wore a tiger-stripe decorated outfit to the ring at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas that looked like the fabric from a bad bedspread. One of those accompanying him to the ring wore a floppy, furry hat with two earflaps. Fashion faux pas!
He’s 24-0, but Garcia was still regarded as a steppingstone to a talked-about fight between Khan and Floyd Mayweather. Garcia doesn’t even have a punchy nickname. It’s “Swift.”
