Premier Boxing Champions: Danny Garcia Wins Majority Decision Against Lamont Peterson On NBC
The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York certainly hosted a boxing event that the fans appreciated. In the main event, Danny Garcia (30-0, 17 KO’s) kept his perfect undefeated record intact against rugged Lamont Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KO’s) via majority decision in a special 143 pound catchweight free live boxing event.
Garcia, who is from Philadelphia, has become a son to the Barclays Center and is typically the crowd favorite. For those of you who believe that Danny was given a gift by the judges are sadly mistaken. Garcia clearly dominated the first six rounds of the fight and won two rounds in the second half of the fight. We saw the fight as an eight rounds to four victory but the judges scored the bout as follows: 114-114, 115-113, and 115-113.
Peterson’s IBF junior welterweight championship title is now vacant.
Although Lamont came on strong during the second half of the fight and busted up Garcia, we saw Garcia as an undeniable winner due to his control of the fight and relentless pressure.
To be honest, after that bullshit decision win that Peterson had over Amir Khan in Washington D.C. in December 2011, it’s great to see Peterson on the short end of the decision.
What do you think? Did the right man win? Or was Peterson ripped off?
