Re: Danny Garcia was impressive
I guess i'll be the only one to say, i wasn't all that impressed by garcia. He did what he was supposed to do against morales. He was catching morales, but the knockout shot was just a matter of him throwing with Morales. it looked great. Morales was finding him too easy in the first fight and I think he he still landed some shots that shouldn't have been landing in the rematch. A those shots from a harder puncher or craftier guy could spell trouble. Call it a combo of the depth at the weight class and the the fact that the impressive wins he has so far were more a combination of time and the other guy's mental and physical lapses.. but i dont look at garcia and consider him a safe bet against the more talented guys of the division of the guys in and around the weight. He tries to outhustle the older guys and out punch the youngers guys. He happened to come up big with morales (old/bloated) and khan(chinny) the past few times out and he threw with them. Maybe they'll match him up with Mathysse next time out... a guy that can take his shots and fire back. just my opinion of course
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
