Boxing news today: Danny Garcia beats Malignaggi, full fight video highlights
This was a fight that was being anxiously awaited by the boxing fans across the world. While Danny Garcia has impressed almost everyone in the boxing world, this was a fight that has established him as a big threat to many top of the line boxers who must be feeling threatened and vulnerable given his impressive performance against Paulie Malignaggi.
While many fans of Paulie Malignaggi thought that he will be able to overcome the formidable foe in the form of Denny Garcia in his own backyards, but this remained just a pipedream and Malignaggi was never able to stop Danny Garciaâ€™s chariot.
There were more than seven thousand spectators who had paid substantial amount of money to see the fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn borough of New York City. Most of them seemed to be Paulie Malignaggi fans. They were booing Garcia and trying to prop up the man who started his boxing career from this very place. But alas their booing and taunts couldnâ€™t stop Garcia from beating Malignaggi in the ninth round.
With this impressive win Garcia improves to 31-0 with his 18th knockout while Malignaggi dropped to 33-7.
Now Garcia is looking forward to challenging the best in this weight division. “Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter are great fighters in this division, and they’re both represented by Al Haymonâ€¦So, if they want we can make it happenâ€ he told the media immediately after the win.
On the other hand the loss seems to be the end of the journey for Malignaggi. He gave hints that he will retire from the game and concentrate on his television obligations. “I’m probably not fighting again,” said Malignaggi, who also works as a television commentator. “My career started in Brooklyn 14 years ago. If it ends in Brooklyn tonight then at least I ended it at home where I’m from and in front of the greatest fans in the world.”
