It's been a long time since some young fighter amazed me, but hell....Danny Garcia did it.

Although Morales is on a clear decline and should retire before they fine and ban his ass from boxing. (No disrespect intended, hes still ERIK MORALES), I liked Garcia in that fight. Especially that thunderous LEFT.
Khan has some holes in his arsenal...and I think these won't be filled any time soon even with the guidance of Hunter, but he is a game and technically sound fighter with potential (damn, saying that hurts), Garcia still taxed his ass, clocked him with another left, kept calm while Khan was break dancin' all over the freaking squared circle and still managed to put up a meassured and humble interview afterwards.

What I am trying to say is, I really like the kid. He is not over the top cocky, got some skills (needs to improve some things of course), has nice amateur resume, PHILLY represent, he can fight, he can talk...I hope he stays on top of the world for a loooong time. Not a P4P material, but makes a good champ in my eyes.

Thoughts ?

i hear the 'he isn't selling tickets so...blah,blah,blah...' all the time. what ppl fail to realize is that selling tickets to venues isn't the only way to generate money. danny is putting together a pretty good highlight reel and chances are his ko will be a candidate for ko of the year. i've not seen him in a boring fight yet. that's good for ratings...and i'm sure his viewership is going to increase which equals more $$$.



lol thank god you are not a promoter. Your company would fold in under a year (IMG:style_emoticons/default/haha.gif)

Of course there are other ways to make revenue however the live gate is a HUGE part of that! HBO and Showtime only give you a set budget meaning they sign over a big check but its not like its a PPV where if you draw a higher rating you get more money. Bottom line Golden Boy knew Garcia aint even got full support from his own Puerto Rican people yet, so no way was he going to have Brooklyns! which is why you saw all these BK kids stacked onto this card to pick up the sales! I dont blame Danny but the fact is the main event was a kid from Philly vs an old faded Mexican which is why I think this card did not sell like the expected. If you remember DLH and Richard were saying in the early press conferences they expected 15,000 they got 10,000 with about 1,500 of those tickets being discounted or given away!

thanks for your attempt on re-educating me.

higher ratings get u back on the network and preferential treatment aka more $$$.

plenty of promoters don't hit their expected numbers but trust me...it doesn't mean they aren't making money.
