Philadelphia's undefeated junior welterweight prospect Danny "Swift" Garcia improved to, 11-0 (7), with a dominating performance against crafty veteran Cristian Favela, now 17-19-6 (10), last night at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
In the early rounds, Garcia pressed the action, landing accurate jabs, followed by impressive counter punching that appeared to dishearten the will of his opponent.
As the fight went on, Garcia let his hands go, throwing more and more power shots. Favela used his veteran experience and held, while momentum continued to mound for Garcia.
Favela survived, taking Garcia the distance for the forth time in his career. Scorecards read 80-72 twice and 79-73.
"This fight was good for me in the sense that I got in some rounds and gained more experience," said Garcia. "I'm looking to get right back in the ring and continue my march toward title contention."
