Props to @DannySwiftGarcia. A lot of fans, including myself have doubted him in the past.
But last night he came in as an underdog against the hard hitting Lucas Matthysse, and Danny looked better than ever. Danny fought smart, he has beautiful counters and combinations, good footwork, great cardio, and we also learned that Danny can take a shot from the hardest hitter at 140 and not even get stunned.
Angel Garcia also deserves a lot of credit. He did a great job in Danny’s corner. He motivated Danny to “wake up” when it looked like Matthysse was starting to come on strong in the mid rounds. And he told Danny to use his speed to counter Matthysse. Great cornering and advise from Angel.
He’s only 25 years old, and he’s only going to continue to get better.
