Number 6. Danny Garcia, 32-0-0 (KO 18) – Welterweight
Many have doubted Garcia skill and overall form as a fighter. Going into his fight with Matthysse, he was written off by some writers and experts; not to last long against the brawler from Argentina. But Garcia proved that he can take a punch, and can throw also hard punches of his own.
He did it by countering and defending beautifully. Although in his last outing against Mauricio Herrera many believed he lost, and that he was gifted with a win from the scorecards in his parents hometown Puerto Rico.
But it was a close fight wherein Herrera was landing more while Garcia was landed the harder shots. He was inclined to move up in weight to invade the home of boxing elite cash cows — the welterweight division.
