Earlier tonight (Sat. April 20, 2019) the vacant WBC silver welterweight title was up for grabs. Former WBC welterweight champion Danny Garcia faced Adrian Granados for the strap. The action went down from the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
Garcia was previously undefeated in his boxing career until a split decision defeat to Keith Thurman in 2017. In his last outing, Garcia failed to capture the WBC welterweight crown from Shawn Porter, who he lost to via unanimous decision in September. He followed up with an attempt to bounce back against Granados, who is 20-6-1 in his career.
However, Granados did come off back-to-back knockout victories. Check out MMA News’ coverage of Garcia vs. Granados here:
