I think Garcia made the same mistake maidana did. Got a little over confident
I want to agree with you on this, but honestly, I cant recall what the hell Garcia was doing after a while. He had aggressive moments (where punches would land), then he just stopped, and then...hell...I dont know.

I had Garcia up something like 9-3 or 8 to 4 against Morales. CShel, gotta disagree, I think Garcia did well against Morales, but it was due to Erik's age more than anything else.
I stopped scoring after a while, to be honest. I think I was going off of what Garcia didn't finish, rather than what he landed. With that in mind, I watched how Erik took advantage of some of those moments of uncertainty by Garcia.
Danny had a nasty counter hook, whether it landed or not, and it Erik at bay for most of the fight. Now, I didn't agree with their score cards at all, especially that hideous 118 - 109 card in favor of Garcia.
Age was apparent in the fight, unlike the Maidana and Cano fight. I believe he looked better in the Maidana fight because he had to fight for his life, and the Cano fight was pretty much a stay busy fight.
