Danny Garcia is a professional boxer who is currently fighting in the welterweight division. Garcia was born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania to parents who are from Puerto Rico. Garcia’s father introduced him to boxing by taking him to Philadelphia’s Harrowgate Boxing Club. Garcia’s father has been his primary boxing coach since the start of his boxing career. Danny Garcia had a successful amateur boxing career, winning over 100 fights while being honored as a U.S. National Champion.

Garcia turned pro with the intention of being recognized as one of the greatest Puerto Rican fighters of all time. He choose the nickname of Swift, as he begun his professional career. He won his debut fight against Mike Denby by knockout. Garcia continued to show great potential as prospect, fighting on the undercards of great champions like Floyd Mayweather Jr and Bernard Hopkins. After 15 successful fights, he decided to step up in competition by facing Ashley Theopane. he was tested but survived winning by split decision. Boxing pundits really recognized that Swift was headed for stardom when he defeated Mike Arnaoutis, Nate Campbell, Kendall Holt, and legendary Mexican champion Erik Morales in consecutive fights.

Danny’s first big fight was against Amir Khan as both his WBC Junior Welterweight and Khan’s WBA Junior Welterweight titles were on the line. Khan started off well and seemed to be in control until he was caught with a left hook and dropped. He continued delivering punishment on his way to a stoppage victory, which earned him the WBC, WBA, and Ring Junior Welterweight titles. He made successful defenses against Erik Morales in a rematch, as well as Zab Judah before taking on Lucas Matthysse in his signature fight. Matthysse was favored to win, and many people expected to see Matthysse knock Danny Garcia out. However, he was able to withstand the punching power of Matthysse, knocking him down in the 11th round. Danny soon earned the recognition of a potential top fighter in the sport. He showed that he has a strong chin capable of standing up against power punchers in addition to the strong offensive skills that brought him success.

Danny’s career started to take a controversial turn after his victory over Matthysse, as he won disputed decisions over Mauricio Herrera and Lamont Peterson. Herrera’s jab caused him lots of problems throughout the fight, even though many fans feel that he was nervous, due to fighting in Puerto Rico for the first time. He desperately wanted to put on a great performance. He once again started slow against Peterson and had trouble figuring out his style. Peterson also made the most of his physical size advantage over Danny. He came back in the later rounds, but the fight could have went either way according to most boxing fans and analysts.

Danny decided to move to welterweight, defeating Paulie Malignaggi in his first fight in the division. He defeated Robert Guerrero to win the WBC welterweight title. He defeated Samuel Vargas by 7th round KO.
